Early this month, Samsung launched a soak test program for its Android 6.0.2 Marshmallow update intended for its Galaxy S6 series of devices in Europe. This launch came after earlier reports had revealed a prelude software release in South Korea. Samsung has today officially revealed that users of the Galaxy S6 edge and the S6 edge+ in South Korea will receive the Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow upgrade along with details of the key added features and improvements. Along with the standard Android enhancements, the biggest software changes revolve around the smartphones' distinctive edge apps. This includes a noticeable increased size of the pixel panel to 550 pixels up from 260 pixels, which allows display of additional content and the implementation of new features. Additional changes have been made to the people edge app, with more contacts names being added right below the image with a shortcut to the settings menu being featured as well. The Apps feature also shows off similar changes with users now being able to add up to 10 apps instead of the previous 5 maximum, along with full folders to the menu. Moreover, with its Marshmallow upgrade, Samsung has added a fresh Tasks edge panel. This feature offers faster access to tools such as the flash light or compass or even starting up of simple tasks like composition of text messages or alarm set up, with a simple tap. Samsung also added that the Android 6.0 Marshmallow update to other Galaxy devices will soon follow.
