Android 6.0 Marshmallow is slowly making its way into third-party devices, and Samsung’s Galaxy range is also set to become its beneficiary soon. While the company hasn’t revealed the release date of this update officially, a roadmap of it has been spotted online, revealing the tentative timings for the rollout.
It seems the latest flagship devices from the company will be the first ones to get their Android 6.0 Marshmallow-based TouchWiz software. The roadmap tells us that the Galaxy Note 5 and the Galaxy S6 Edge+ will be receiving the upgrade during this December.
The Galaxy S6 and S6 Edge will then follow, with their respective rollouts having been scheduled for January, according to the leaked document that has come our way thanks to Times News UK. This roadmap talks about three phases for the Marshmallow rollout, with the first one meant for the above mentioned devices as well as the Galaxy S5 and the Alpha.
The second phase includes several mid-range devices like the Galaxy A8, E7 and more that were launched by Samsung this year. All these phones have been shown to have their updates ready, but with pending approvals. Hence, there aren’t any tentative timings to show for them.
As for the third phase, the devices that will be included in it are yet to be revealed. This internal document only talks about the company’s smartphones, with no word on when the Android 6.0 Marshmallow update will be reaching its high-end tablets.
Right now, owners of the Samsung Galaxy Note 5 and Galaxy S6 Egde+ should be excited as their devices will be the first ones from the company to get the Marshmallow update this December.
