Samsung’s high-end phablet from 2015 (Galaxy S6 edge+) is currently getting Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow. The rollout began a few days back on the South Korean network, SK Telecom. Other major carriers in the country and internationally are expected to push out the update shortly.
You can download the update through Samsung’s Smart Switch desktop application. The firmware version is G928SKSU2BPAG and comes as 1 GB+ download. The update will probably bring the same changes that were rolled out to the Galaxy S6 and the S6 edge beginning of this month, and also getting the new features included with Marshmallow, for example, Now on Tap, Doze Mode, and application permission controls.
The new update should help increase the overall use of Marshmallow which was reported to have just reached 1.2% of Android gadgets. With Android, it’s ordinary to see a version become the most used after it has been around a while. For instance, Android KitKat is as of now the most used with 35.5% market share.
The rollout of Marshmallow for the Galaxy S6 and S6 edge began on February first in South Korea. By the 15th it was rolling out globally. If Samsung and carriers work at a similar pace with the S6 edge+ update, we expect to see updates for the S6 edge+ published globally in the first half of March.
