After Android 6.0 Marshmallow started rolling out on Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge+ in South Korea yesterday, the latest reports from earlier today confirmed that the 2015 flagship started receiving the latest version of the Android OS outside of Samsung’s home country as well. Namely, the update is now available for the curved-screen device in Iraq, or even more specifically, it can be downloaded on smartphones with the model number SM-G928C.
As the 6.0.1 update is just over 1 GB in size, it’s recommended that you download it over a Wi-Fi network. Just like it was the case in South Korea, the latest edition of Android OS can be installed with the Samsung Smart Switch desktop app while there also shouldn’t be any problems for those looking to download it directly to their Samsung device. After a successful installation, the new firmware version should end up being G928SKSU2BPAG. According to feedback from S6 Edge+owners who managed to install it, this particular build was compiled just last week, on February 17th. Galaxy S6 and S6 Edge have already started receiving Android 6.0.1 earlier this month while the Note 5 rollout began on Friday. As for owners of slightly older Galaxy devices, specifically the Note 4 and the first Note Edge, Samsung already confirmed they’re next in the Marshmallow line and that rollouts for both phones will begin in March and April, depending on location.
First versions of Marshmallow started rolling out way back in October, so there’s no doubt that Galaxy S6 Edge+ owners will be glad to finally use the latest version of their favorite mobile OS, especially since their LG and HTC flagship-wielding colleagues have already been using it on their last year’s devices for quite some time now. In addition to the Doze power-saving mode, Google Now on Tap, and a completely redesigned system of app permissions featured in the standard, vanilla edition of Android 6.0 Marshmallow, this particular update will also come packed with the latest version of Samsung Web browser with built-in ad-blocking functionality. There’s still no word on when will the update roll out on the biggest member of the Galaxy S6 line of smartphones worldwide, but considering these last few days, daily or close to daily updates are to be expected.
