We saw the launch of Android Marshmallow 6.0 during Google I/O with the Nexus 5X and 6P; shortly afterwards, Android One devices alongside Nexus smartphones (3years back) began receiving the update.
However, it is only now that the software began making its rounds among some of the well-established brands like Samsung and the likes. The reason behind these long delays is especially due to the fact that each OEM has to fine tune the new software to add their traditional feature set that they are commonly known for — which is mostly in regard to the general UI and UX of the smart device.
Samsung and Huawei have made announcements that Android 6.0 will be coming to their S and Honor series soon.
Huawei Honor 7 users in some countries have been running the beta version for the past two months now and company promised to roll out the full fledge version in the coming weeks.
Samsung made the same announcement today that the OS will be reaching their S6 and S6 Edge’s variants first before other Galaxy series get the update.
The Korean Giant is expected to make separate announcements regarding other upgradeable devices on the details and enhancements expected from the new Android version.
The OS is expected to add new features to the curved screen of the Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge with an enhanced and unique UI making it faster and more convenient to use.
Though, the speed at which devices get the new update isn’t up to the OEMs, as network carrier requirements must be met.They also have to make additional changes to the OS to suit their needs before rolling it out to devices connected to their network.
