Marshmallow OTA for Samsung devices delayed until February

Some Marshmallow updates like to keep users guessing and Samsung’s newest Galaxy devices will make you have to wait for a while too. Android 6.0 updates were supposed to hit Galaxy Note 5 and Galaxy S6 Edge+ in December, but the update is not here yet.





In some leaked documents we found out that the two devices will get the update sometime in February. Galaxy S6 and S6 Edge have also been delayed with updates coming sometime in February/March. Galaxy S5 will receive its Android 6.0 update in April, if we are to believe leaks.


The update situation is pretty complex, at least when it comes to Samsung, who has tons of devices which function on numerous carriers. This makes their update a complex and long process. Since Samsung does not offer any guidelines on when they release their updates, we cannot expect any kind of apology on delays either.


If you have one of the aforementioned devices and you are waiting for an update, you will just have to wait for a little while longer.

Honor sub-brand announced Android 6.0 OTA coming February 2016

Honor recently announced it will push Marshmallow OS to its devices as soon as February 2016. The news broke out on Twitter, where the Indian division said that the roll out will begin next year.


Honor 7 smartphone


People who bought an Honor 7 that is not in the beta, you will have to wait for a few more months before being able to enjoy Android 6.0. The initial roll out will get to Honor 7, 4C, 4X, 6 and 6 Plus. There is still a lot of time to wait but, compared to other manufacturers’ deal, it’s good news all around!


We do not know what changes the EMUI will go through with the change to Marshmallow though. EMUI is an interpretation of Android with similar to no stock elements. Some like them, and others don’t. Considering that Huawei is a Nexus partner now, we can expect that their interface will look and feel much better now.


What is surprising is the fact that current branded Huawei phones were not included in any update to Android 6.0 announcement yet, whereas the Honor sub-brand was much faster in assessing and announcing a change. It is possible that this update will first roll out to Indian markets, but we are not sure of it yet.
