Could Samsung Galaxy S6 Unlocked Phones Have Got Android Marshmallow Already?


Samsung is rushing to meet deadlines. With the mobile world congress close at hand, the company will have to deliver new mobiles with perfect design and internals for the users by first quarter of 2016.

Even with so much of work at hand, the company has not forgotten the users of existing devices.

The company wishes to have the latest flagships updated to the latest versions of Android, so that the users can be on the same page as other Android users.

For this purpose, the company has done a check on those users who own unlocked devices of both the Samsung Galaxy S6 and Samsung Galaxy S6 edge.

The places where this search was concentrated on was U.K. and South Korea. Both the places were known to have the highest number of users of these devices.

The users were screened on the basis of their willingness to appear for the Beta Testing phase, so their devices could get the Android 6.0 update for a trial.

The exact outcome of the search and the tests have not really been disclosed.

However, it has been made clear that there has been a case of a Samsung Galaxy S5 that has been seen with Android 6.0.1 with one user. Apparently, he got this update accidentally.

As per the security patch, it clearly states that the update has been dated January 1st, 2016. With such a date mentioned, we can make out that there are still a lot of updates to be expected, as one update cannot take care of the whole OS Upgradation.

There are a lot of things that developers have to keep taking care of and devices have to be closely followed before any changes can be inflicted and modifications can be termed as final.

The update that was released in December was just a security update that paved the way for future Android updates. One feature that was reportedly seen was Doze.

Doze is a feature common to all devices functioning on Android Marshmallow 6.0 and above.

In this feature, whenever the phone is on standby for a long time, it goes into a sleep mode where unnecessary background apps are shut down till user resumes access.

Other updates like emojis and fixes for common bugs can be expected with future updates.

It is unclear as to when the other phones will get the update, but as of now we you can keep following News4C for more updates.
