Leak gives us our first look at Marshmallow for the Galaxy S6

Leaked screenshots from an Android 6.0 Marshmallow preview build for the Samsung Galaxy S6 have appeared online.

Published onDecember 2, 2015


Samsung is apparently right in the middle of its testing phase leading up to the Android 6.0 Marshmallow release for its Galaxy Note 5 and Galaxy S6 smartphones and some newly leaked screenshots show that Samsung has quite a few changes planned for its TouchWiz interface.

Coming from a Chinese preview build running on the Galaxy S6, the screenshots show that Samsung is continuing to flatten down the look of its user interface and seems to have made some major changes to its notification bar. The background and icons take on a white rather than blue theme this time around, and this vision looks to extend to a selection of Samsung’s apps and menus as well.

The leak also suggests that the Android Marshmallow update will bring a manual camera mode to Samsung’s Galaxy S6 as well. We can see new options to manually configure the camera shutter speed, ISO, exposure and white balance have all been added into the app’s interface, which is sure to please the photographers out there. It’s worth noting at these features are already available in the Note 5 version of Samsung’s flagship range.

The Galaxy S6 Marshmallow update is expected to arrive sometime next month. What do you think about Samsung’s new look with Android Marshmallow, is it better than the company’s Lollipop design?
