Here’s when Samsung’s Galaxy devices will get the Marshmallow update
The map is organized into phases, (Phase. 1) and (Phase. 2). If you bought a Samsung flagship either this year or last year, you’ll be happy to know that you’re at the top of the list for the update. Updates will start next month with the newly released Galaxy Note 5 and Galaxy S6 Edge+. Following will be the Galaxy S6 and Galaxy S6 Edge which launched back in March. They’re scheduled to get the update in January of 2016. Last year’s Galaxy Note 4 and Galaxy Note Edge will start receiving the update in February of next year, with the Galaxy S5 flagship and Galaxy Alpha to follow shortly after.
In phase 2, the handsets listed are awaiting official approval and are currently listed as N/A. However, if you own one of these handsets, at least you know you’ll be receiving the major update. The Galaxy A-series and E-series fit this category, which include the A9, A7, A5, A3, E7 and E5. If your device is not on this list, that doesn’t mean all hope is lost, but it will likely be just shy of a year before you get your hands on the update, if that even happens.
Please remember that if you live in the United States, owners of these devices will have to wait for carriers to roll-out the update which comes after the manufacturer. This typically takes another month or two before the update actually hits your device via OTA. So please add that to your estimations. You can check out the official Samsung roadmap pictured above for all the details.
