Major update, possibly Android Marshmallow, in the works for Samsung flagships
Sources are indicating Samsung has a major update in the works that will be going out to the four flagship devices released this year – the Samsung Galaxy S6, the Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge, the Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge+ and the Samsung Galaxy Note 5. According to individuals familiar with the update it is unusually large in size, especially when compared to the usual updates pushed out by Samsung. This has lead some to conclude Samsung may be preparing Android 6.0 Marshmallow to be issued to their devices and perhaps not too long after Google makes their official announcement.
According to some information on the firmware version numbers for the Galaxy S6 Edge, the device is being updated from G925FXXU2COH2 to G925FXXU3COI6. Sources indicate the change from “U2″ to “U3″ indicates significant changes to the user interface portion. However, that may not necessarily mean Android Marshmallow as significant user-facing changes could be part of some new features or improvements Samsung is rolling out for Android 5.1.1.
Sources have also mentioned the Samsung Galaxy Note 4 will get Android Marshmallow, although there is no indication that the Note 4 is part of this pending update.
