Samsung releases Android 6.0 Marshmallow for the Galaxy S6 and the Galaxy S6 edge globally


Last updated: February 15th, 2016 at 09:47 UTC+02:00

The day many of you have been waiting for has finally arrived. Samsung has confirmed that it’s releasing Android 6.0 Marshmallow for the Galaxy S6 and the Galaxy S6 edge globally starting today. The company has also confirmed that other Galaxy devices compatible with Marshmallow will soon follow suit. For upgradable models, Samsung is going to make separate announcements with details of OS updates and the release schedule for each market.

The Galaxy S6 and the Galaxy S6 edge owners can look forward to receiving the Marshmallow update starting today. Keep in mind though that the release depends on the market situation and carrier requirements so if you happen to have a carrier-locked unit you may have to wait longer than users with international unlocked units. Android 6.0 Marshmallow brings new and improved features for the edge screen on the Galaxy S6 edge aside from user interface tweaks and overall improvements to the performance and stability of the OS.
