Samsung Galaxy S5 mini and the Galaxy J3 (2016) getting Marshmallow soon

Home / News / Samsung Galaxy S5 mini and the Galaxy J3 (2016) getting Marshmallow soon

Samsung recently took the wraps off the Galaxy J3 (2016) [our review here] for international markets, the device was also launched in the U.S. via Verizon WirelessAT&T and a couple of prepaid carriers. While the American models featured Android 6.0 Marshmallow out of the box, some regions had to make do with Android 5.1.1 Lollipop. Well, it seems like the company is on course to fix that with the Galaxy J3 (2016) said to be getting the Marshmallow update very soon.

The handset is already sold with Marshmallow on board in some regions like South Korea (in addition to the U.S.), so a global update shouldn’t be far away. In what has come as a surprise to many, the Galaxy S5 mini is also about to receive an update to the latest version of Android. The update has already been spotted at the Wi-Fi Alliance, which is an indication of things to come. The Galaxy S5 mini last saw the Android 5.1.1 Lollipop update in 2015, so it’s been a long wait for its users.

This waiting is useless.
Samsung never planned to take the SM-J320M to Android Marshmallow.

Project stalled. 0 updates released in the past 30 days.

The word “soon” is completely meaningless for Samsung.
Or just similar to “if ever” / “maybe never”.

After the UAE 6.0.1 release they returned to Lollipop updates again.
WTF is going on at Samsung???

“The Galaxy S5 mini last saw the Android 5.1.1 Lollipop update in 2015, so it’s been a long wait for its users.”

And the Galaxy S5 mini got another Android 5.1.1 Lollipop update in 2016 december, so it’s an even longer wait for its users…

This post was written 7 months ago.
7 months ago the Marshmallow rom was almost done.
7 months was not enough to finish and release it for their customers.
Samsung is still unable to provide adequate support.
It’s a Shame.

Currently it is available only for Galaxy J3 in the USA and Korea (since 2016-05-24).
All others must wait until the guys at Samsung pay attention to them.

Personally I didn’t believe they support a product after 2 years but experts said the S5 mini marshmallow update was on its way to roll out.

Just like I told before: even if it’s true the S5 mini owners have to wait a lot… 🙁
They just did the same with the lollipop update. It’s a f* big shame.

“getting Marshmallow soon” — that was 2 months ago.
What is “soon”? What does it mean? For the Lollipop update it was more than 1 year.

Just like I told, S5 mini owners have to wait a lot.

They treated S5 mini so badly that I sold it in december. The Lollipop update finally arrived in my country last month (april 2016), “only” 16 months after the announcment. 🙁

Now I think there are 3 possibilities:
1. Samsung will release Marshmallow update in a few months. It would be a miracle.
2. They just keep their habit, and S5 mini owners have to wait a lot.
3. The update will cancelled.

I bet the 2nd.

The Galaxy S5 received the update, but the S5 mini didn’t (only the dual sim variant).

Weird. The S3 Mini and Mini S4 did not have as lucky as the S5 Mini supposedly will have to stay in the same version as the older brother.
The S3 Mini died on Android 4.1.2 (S3 Original died in the 4.3 and Neo died in 4.4.4) and S4 Mini died in 4.4.2 (the original S4 and the Value Edition died in 5.0.1).
I think at the last minute she’ll end up giving up.

I was surprised, too. But they treated S5 mini so badly that I think they want to give users a bit of remedy. S5 minis (at least in the Czech republic) only received one update, from 4.4.2 to 5.1.1 – it starts to be available for more networks here. So after nearly two years, they gave it one update. It deserves one more.
