Android Marshmallow for the Galaxy S6 shown in leaked screenshots
A couple of weeks ago we saw screenshots of what was purportedly Android 6.0 Marshmallow running on a T-Mobile Galaxy Note 5. Given the major interface changes seen in those screenshots, we were not exactly fully believing of the fact that that was an actual test build and not a fake. Well, it seems Samsung surely is hoping to make a few changes to how TouchWiz looks on Marshmallow, as similar screenshots of an Android 6.0 build running on a Galaxy S6 have appeared online.
The most notable change in the interface on Marshmallow seems to come in the quick toggles panel in the notification shade, with the toggles now blue in color and looking sleeker. Samsung has also changed the background of the quick toggles panel to white, which was also the case with the regular status bar on the Note 5 screenshots. The latter didn’t exactly look so nice in the previously leaked images, but we’re guessing that won’t be the case when we see it on an actual device. Sadly, Samsung doesn’t seem to be changing the icons for its apps, but we can always hope the company will get around to doing that with the Galaxy S7.
If these images are to be believed, the Galaxy S6 might also obtain shutter speed control in the camera’s Pro mode, a feature we had expected to see with Android 5.1.1 Lollipop. They also suggest that Samsung is hard at work on putting Android 6.0 on all its 2015 flagships as quickly as it can, and also on its top-of-the-line handsets from last year.
Check out Marshmallow on the S6 in the images below, and let us know what you think of the visual touches Samsung has added to the software.
