Marshmallow for the Galaxy S6 and S6 Edge rolls out in India

Samsung's latest flagships all sport the formidable Mali-T760 GPU

Hot on the heels of the launch of the new flagship Galaxy S7 and S7 Edge in India, Samsung has begun rolling out Android Marshmallow updates to its last generation of flagship smartphones in the country. The Samsung Galaxy S6, S6 Edge, and S6 Edge Plus have all begun receiving updates to Android 6.0.

Being a rather significant update, the Marshmallow download for the Galaxy S6 range weighs in at a hefty 1.2GB in size. So set aside some time to download this one and best not to let it eat up all of your data allowance.

Once installed, expect to find the well documented range of new Android features, including Doze, advanced app permissions, and Google Now on Tap contextual search. Samsung has a few tweaks of its own too, including a new web browser, TouchWiz user interface adjustments, and more convenient quick toggles.

The update does a rather good job at matching most of the features found in Samsung’s latest flagship handsets, so keep an eye out for that OTA notification in the coming days. Alternatively, you can find the button to force a manual update check under Settings > About device > Software update. Let us know when the update arrives for you.

    Wtf… still no update for me

  • Still no update for people on AT&T though, awesome!

    • Kunal Narang

      Phones in India are sold unlocked, so they are bound to get faster updates.

      • I know, it’s just stupid that Samsung pushed the updates to phones almost a month ago and carriers still have not pushed out the update to their phones yet

        • Kunal Narang

          Yeah, that’s because the carrier phones are filled with bloat. New updates means new bloat. Sorry about that!

          • Samsung has actually said, hopefully they hold up to their word, that they are getting rid of a bunch of bloat ware with Marshmallow.

          • saksham

            only ur carrier can get rid of the bloat

          • False. Samsung can tell AT&T to remove certain bloatware from their phones i.e. Samsung Milk Video.
