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.
