Recently Motorola has rolled out Android 6.0 Marshmallow update over-the-air for its Moto X Style and Moto X 2014 edition phones, and if you look at the upgrade cycle, it is becoming slower than expected. Now it’s time for Samsung Galaxy series to receive the Marhmallow version 6.0 Android update. According to a leaked roadmap, Samsung Note5 and Galaxy S6 Edge+ will be the first to Android 6.0 Softawre update in December. Details on this has been updated below.
Although the Samsung’s roadmap of scheduled Android MAarshmallow update has been approved for 6 handsets and will be receiving it in the first phase itself. Second batch includes the Galaxy S6 and Galaxy S6 Edge will get the Marshmallow update in January 2016, whereas the Galaxy Note 4 and Note Edge of 2014 variants will be offered a month later next year, in February.
To date, there is one model number per phone which has also been listed in the Samsung’s Android 6.0 Marshmallow roadmap. Apparently, quite other regional versions should also likely to receive the update sometime around the same timeframe, except the carrier variants – could take longer depending on the network and their terms and conditions.
Unfortunately, there is no time frame for the Android 6.0 Marshmallow update for the Galaxy Alpha and Galaxy S5. The second phase of rollout will include devices from Samsung’s Galaxy A-series as well as Galaxy E-series handsets. Leaked documents doesn’t reveal the time frame for the devices. The phase 2 models include the Galaxy A3, A5, A7 and A8 as well as the E7 and the E5.
Notably, this roadmap is dated as October 29th which is nearly 3 weeks ago while we’re in November month and the handsets may already been approved by now, devices such as the Galaxy S5 and Alpha. If this update schedule is to be trusted, then we can expect the update for both the s5 and alpha to hit sometime in March 2016.
Samsung officially hasn’t specified which handsets will be included in Phase 3, so there are chances that release dates may be pushed back and the software updates may be delayed.

First of all the phones after getting updates will receive a new Memory Manager that will let users check memory usage of all installed apps, second one in the upgrade brings an improved Volume control system, alongside Do Not Disturb button, which has been added to the quick settings panel.
