It’s almost a given that Samsung will look to load their best devices up with Android 6.0 Marshmallow, but the company hasn’t come out with exact plans to make that happen. Well, we won’t have to wait for their word to get an idea as SamMobile has uncovered a full list of devices which will receive the update.
The list you see below is pretty unsurprising. The European international model and all major US carrier models of the phones below are scheduled to receive it, including those on T-Mobile, Sprint, Verizon, AT&T, US Cellular and Canadian carriers. You can also expect Korean models of these phones — including the LTE-A models — to receive it.
- Samsung Galaxy S6
- Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge
- Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge+
- Samsung Galaxy Note 5
- Samsung Galaxy S5
- Samsung Galaxy Note 4 *
- Samsung Galaxy Note Edge *
- Samsung Galaxy S5 Neo *
There are a few other odd exceptions on the list, as noted by the asterisks next to their names. Verizon seems to be the only carrier to be getting the upgrade on the Samsung Galaxy Note 4 and Samsung Galaxy Note Edge. The Samsung Galaxy S5 Neo in Europe is also on the list. We’re not sure why other carrier models of last year’s Note devices wouldn’t be on the list, but it’s important to note that these plans are only preliminary, and Samsung could be planning to add more by the time it’s all said and done.
Nothing’s official, so there’s not much reason to get happy or said either way. Sit back, and let’s wait on Samsung’s official word before making any further conclusions about what they’ll look to do.
