Samsung Begins Rollout Of Android Marshmallow For Galaxy Devicesby Brandon Chester on February 15, 2016 5:08 PM EST
Today Samsung announced that they are beginning the rollout of Android 6.0 Marshmallow to their Galaxy devices. As expected, the first two devices to be updated are the company's flagship Galaxy S6 and S6 Edge smartphones. According to the company, there will be announcements going forward clarifying which devices will get the update, and what timeline should be expected when one takes into consideration the carrier verification step of the process.
In addition to the new features that came to Android in version 6.0, the Marshmallow update from Samsung comes with some improvements that are specific to the Galaxy S6 Edge. Most notable is the fact that the panel is no longer limited to the 260 pixel width of the curved part of the display. It can now be expanded to 550 pixels wide, allowing for much more content to be displayed. Samsung has also added some new miniature apps of sorts, which they call quick tools. They include a compass, a flashlight, and my personal favorite for the Edge, a ruler.
