For some users, Android updates are an outright milestone with anxious anticipation as they wait for the day when it may come to their non-Nexus device. If it ever does. Other users, on the other hand, may not even be aware their phones can be updated. Regardless of which extreme one is on, or wherever they fall in the space between, updates are most always a good thing: they typically offer better optimization of the hardware, can squash bugs, and even add new features.
Such is the case with Android 6.0 Marshmallow, which is now rolling out to the Lenovo Vibe S1 for customers in India. Courtesy of Anuj Sharma, Head of Product and Marketing at Lenovo India who took the time to Tweet about the news:
The update follows last month’s Marshmallow madness on the Lenovo K3 Note, the Lenovo A7000, and the Lenovo Vibe P1. One of the main draws of the Vibe P1 was its dual feont-facing camera arrangement which consisted of an 8-megapixel main camera and 2-megapixel sub-camera which improved image quality by adding depth of field.
Originally released last October, Android Marshmallow brings with it numerous features to Google’s mobile OS including Now On Tap which scans your current screen image for relevant information, Doze, which opts to better manage power usage during device downtime, and granular App Permissions that give you more control over what access your apps have to your phone and files.
According to the Tweet, Marshmallow is now rolling out via an OTA push, however this typically occurs in stages meaning it could be some time before your specific device receives the file. Customers that simply can’t wait for it can opt to manually check by selecting the appropriate Settings and About Device options. Note that even this process may not work immediately and thus patience is the only path forward.
