Samsung has updated a couple of its flagships to Android 6.0 Marshmallow in the last month or so, and a leaked roadmap is now showing the estimated time of release of Marshmallow for the company’s cheaper devices. According to the roadmap, all of last year’s Galaxy S flagships and the Galaxy Note 5 will be updated by March, after which the update will start rolling out for devices like the Galaxy Alpha and the Galaxy Note 4.
The Note 4 and the Note Edge will see Marshmallow starting April, while Galaxy S5 owners will have to wait until May. The Galaxy Tab S2 – Samsung’s third tablet lineup to feature a Super AMOLED display – will also be updated in the same month. Come June, the update will roll out to the Galaxy Alpha, the phone that kicked off the Korean giant’s affair with premium materials for its smartphones.
These roadmaps don’t always turn out to be accurate, so it’s best to take the estimated release time frames with a pinch of salt. It’s certainly not great to see Samsung taking such a long time with the latest hero devices in its lineup, and we can hope the company will hurry up the process instead of making people wait till a time Android N rumors are sure to start coming out in full force.
