Most owners of flagship devices expect that their smartphones will be kept up to date or at least remain a priority when it comes to receiving major OS version updates. This time round, unfortunately, the Marshmallow update rollout has been painfully slow even for flagship smartphones. Samsung is just one of the manufacturers currently pushing out the Marshmallow update to its flagship Galaxy devices. The latest one on its round up is the Galaxy S6 edge+, which is receiving its Android 6.0.1 upgrade. Unsurprising, Samsung has begun its Marshmallow update rollout for the S6 edge+ in its home country, South Korea. The over the air update will be at least 1 GB heavy, and will place the firmware version at G928SKSU2BPAG build number. The update will bring similar functionalities as those found on the Galaxy S6, S6 edge and the Galaxy Note 5. These will include enhanced battery life thanks to a Doze mode feature, added app permission controls, Google Now on Tap for contextual searching of information, as well as a slew of new emojis. Along with a nearly-stock Marshmallow experience, Samsung is also bundling the update with a newly introduced version of its own stock browser, which brings slight tweaks to the user interface as well as providing a much cleaner, more intuitive surfing experience.
