Original Galaxy J5 (SM-J500F) getting the Marshmallow update in India

Almost eight months after Google officially released Marshmallow, Samsung is bringing the update to its affordable smartphone lineup. Android 6.0.1 is rolling out to the original Galaxy J5 in India; it’s an 874.17 MB update that is available over the air and carries build number J500FXXU1BPF. According to the changelog, the update brings a “new TouchWiz” with an “updated design”, although we’re not sure if it’s the newest version of TouchWiz found on 2016 devices or just one with slight changes to things like the app icons.

All the Marshmallow features should be on offer, though, including Google Now on Tap, better control over app permissions, and increased idle battery life thanks to Doze. A new vibration pattern is also included for notifications. We’ve reached out to our tipster for a few screenshots of Android 6.0.1 running on the J5 and will update this post once we get them. In the meantime, if you own the Galaxy J5, head into the Settings » About device » Software update menu to start downloading the update.

As for the Galaxy J7, we hope its Marshmallow update will follow quickly. We’ll let you know once the rollout begins.

Update to Marshmallow might be pointless. There is Nougat on the horizon and IMO it will be better to allocate dev resources to new version. Because for the year or so once again we will find ourselves in a situation that we will wait for the version which is already obsolete.
