Android 6.0 Marshmallow now seeding to the Galaxy s6 Edge Plus
While we already knew it was imminent, the only question was exactly when. The Samsung Galaxy S6 edge and S6 already got their Android upgrade treat last year. Well, the good news is that Android 6.0 Marshmallow for the Samsung Galaxy S6 edge Plus has finally started rolling out for the international versions we can confirm this is true for those in Africa and the UAE where the update is now available.
You should see an OTA (Over The Air) update notification soon, if not already. However, if you’re feeling impatient, you can also manually check for the update by heading to your handset’s settings menu. You should be warned the update is over 1.346 GB huge so you must have enough internal memory before you start the upgrade process. It is also available through Samsung’s Smart Switch desktop app, it weighs in at over 1GB and bumps the firmware version to G928COJV2BPA/G928FXXU2BPB7/G928CXXU2BPBA The update should bring along the usual Marshmallow goodies, including Doze, Google Now on Tap, and redesigned app permissions, as well as other changes that the recent Note5 update included, such as the new Samsung Web browser that comes with support for ad-blocking.
The power menu has changed from the small pop-up window it used to be for ages to a row of icons on a blurred background. And now that we’ve mentioned power, the update brings back the option to disable fast charging, if you’re particularly concerned about your battery’s health. A redesign of the notification shade marks the departure from Lollipop, much like the blue/green combo introduced us to it.
