We’ve been waiting and waiting for something official from Samsung about when we can expect some of their flagship devices to finally be updated to Android 6.0, and while there’s still nothing official from the company, a leaked roadmap seems to indicate that the first round of upgrades should happen in February. Keep in mind that the first set of leaks said updates should’ve happened back in December, so take everything with a grain of salt.
The first phase of devices, includes all of Samsung’s 2015 flagships (Galaxy S6, S6 Edge, S6 Edge+, Note 5) and the Galaxy S5, Note 4 and Note Edge. The Galaxy Note 5 and S6 Edge+ will lead the way in February with the Marshmallow update, with the Galaxy S6 and S6 Edge seeing their updates in March. The GS6, Note 4, and Note Edge will round things out in March or April.
According to the leak, all of these updates for the devices have already been approved by Samsung, so all that’s left is to get carrier approval to begin pushing things out. We’ve seen that process take a decent amount of time, so don’t be surprised if things keep slipping out a little further.
Here’s hoping Samsung gets at least a few of their older devices updated before announcing the Galaxy S7.
