Android 6.0.1 rolling out to the Galaxy S6 and Galaxy S6 edge in the UK


Last updated: February 22nd, 2016 at 11:42 UTC+02:00

Samsung announced the global rollout of Android 6.0 Marshmallow for the Galaxy S6 and Galaxy S6 edge last week, but it is only now the update seems to be making it to actual devices. The Galaxy S6 (SM-G920F) and Galaxy S6 edge (SM-G925F) are getting Android 6.0.1 over in the UK on the Vodafone network, with the update featuring build number XXU3DPB8. The update should be hitting other networks in the country soon, in addition to regular unlocked units.

Android 6.0 brings an updated visual design on the software front, newer version of Samsung’s Internet browser, Cross App functionality in built-in apps, Google Now on Tap, Doze, and better permissions control. The Note 5 has already gotten the 6.0.1 in one market, and it looks like Marshmallow will now roll out in earnest as the Galaxy S7 and Galaxy S7 edge have been officially announced. The Galaxy S6 and S6 edge shouldn’t have too many bugs on the Marshmallow unlike the Note 5, considering Samsung did a thorough beta test before releasing the official update.

Expect the update to show up on your Galaxy S6 or S6 edge as a notification in the next day or two. If that doesn’t happen, you can take a trip into the Settings » About device » Software updates menu to rush things up, or grab the firmware from our firmware section to upgrade manually. Check out Marshmallow on the Galaxy S6 and Galaxy S6 edge here.
