If you have been thinking about crossing over to Samsung Galaxy S6 for some time, it seems you have gotten an added push to get one of the sleek devices in the Samsung GalaxyS6 class. For some weeks (running into months), rumors about a possible update to Samsung’s flagship models have been going round, we have gotten tips, hints and even teasers, and it seems that Samsung has finally started rolling out its update; could it be in a bid to make us forget the Samsung Galaxy S7 for now?
Samsung started sending the latest Android version, Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow to the Samsung Galaxy S6s. the models in the S6 class will also be able to enjoy the upgrades that come with this update as some of the features, specs and apps would be updated.
As at the time of writing this article, the update is still in South Korea, the host country of the tech and consumer electronics maker. Many Galaxy S6 users in South Korea have received the update, and the tech company has remained mum on when it will start sending the update to the global market. The decision to make it available first in South Korea could be due to fears of issues that may arise, so the company may have decided to test it in its home market before sending it out to the global market, as it will be easier to handle issues(if any).
Last year, Samsung introduced a program called, the ‘Galaxy Beta Program’, the new update can be linked to the program as this new improvement was strategically planned. If Samsung Galaxy S6 and Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge users sign up for this program, they would be able to install and test the upcoming firmware updates after which they would provide feedbacks to the company before it sends out the final versions of the firmware. Samsung hasn’t only made the Samsung Galaxy S6s some of the most wanted devices but it has really pleased its customers by jumping from the Android 6.0 Marshmallow to the Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow, which is the latest.
Just as I stated earlier, this update brings many changes to the Samsung Galaxy S6 and the Galaxy S6 Edge interfaces, the status bars and the quick toggles menus now appear in white background colors instead of blue. The power menus have been redesigned and some app icons have been changed as well, but some of the changes are slight and less visible. Users will also be able to download new themes that are based on color palettes if they want to customize their devices to suit their preference.
If you would love to see some cool new emojis, you will be getting it on the Android Marshmallow 6.0.1 OS, and the emojis come with full support for Unicode 7.0 and Unicode 8.0.
We shouldn’t forget that some users in Hungary said that the Samsung Galaxy Note 4 started receiving the Android Marshmallow updates in December. The company was to start sending the latest of its builds with the Samsung Galaxy Note 5 and the Samsung Galaxy S6+ this month. And if things would move as planned, we foresee the Samsung Galaxy Note 4 and the Note Edge receiving the update this month.
