Samsung is slated to unveil the Galaxy S7 during MWC 2016 with Android 6.0 Marshmallow onboard, but it is not forgetting its current-generation and even last-generation smartphones.

Now, SamsungViet is reporting an alleged timeline for the release of Android 6.0 updates for several Samsung smartphones and tablets including the Galaxy S6 trio and the Galaxy Note series.
