Exclusive: Galaxy S6, S6 Edge, S5, Note5, Note 4 Android Marshmallow Date Leaks

Samsung is making its loyal users very impatient for the next big Android update – the Android 6.0 Marshmallow. While competitors like HTC and LG have been rolling out the update for their phones one after another, Samsung is still lacking behind in this area. The flagship Samsung Galaxy S6, S6 Edge, and S6 Edge+ have still not received the Marshmallow update, though the beta testing of those updates is going on in some countries.

Well, if you use the Galaxy S5, S6, S6 Edge, S6 Edge+, Note Edge, Note 4, or Note5, we have some good news for you. The Android Marshmallow rollout dates for these phones have been leaked out by a source today who goes by the name of “XTECH LEAKS”. A screenshot has been shared with us by the leaker through email, and the image is apparently the roadmap for Samsung’s Marshmallow update rollout schedule.

As suggested by the leaked schedule, the Galaxy S6 Edge+ and the Galaxy Note 5 will be the first to get the Marshmallow update in February, that’s next month. Then the update would be rolled out for the Galaxy S6 and S6 Edge in sometime between February to March. The Galaxy S5, Note 4, and Note Edge will be getting the Android 6.0 update in around March to April.

One thing to note is that Samsung has already seeded Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow beta to the Galaxy S6 and S6 Edge, but this leak only tells us about the Android 6.0 update. If an educational guess is to be made, we think that the aforementioned devices will get the Android 6.0.1 update shortly after Android 6.0, as both are being tested right now. As the Android 6.0.1 update is not a major one, it shouldn’t take much time to roll out.

Though we won’t take this leaked image as gospel, we surely have to make an educational and logical guess using the information provided. First of all, the Android Marshmallow beta testing for some of the aforementioned devices has already begun, and the February-March-April release date looks very logical and possible.

And anyway, we are reaching January end now, and it’s only a couple of weeks before we will start hearing about the first Marshmallow update by Samsung this year.

Update: Samsung Galaxy S6 and S6 edge are now receiving the Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow update in South Korea.

    What about Sprint?

    • Jeff Saul

      Add at at least 2-3 months for any US carrier. The Feb/March date above is only for international versions, not U.S. carrier (AT&T, Sprint, TMo, and Verizon) versions

    • abn

      Sprint rolled s6 and s6 edge out today

      • wuafri

        any cool features?

  • sanjith

    Lol ..beta testing was officially closed on jan18…so rollout should begin this week! And it will be 6.0.1 …..

    • Ryan Whiteside

      Yet, it says it will be next month.

  • after being an Iphone user and switching to an S6 edge, I now know why being a Samsung user will always feel like second class citizen, the user experience is different if your update is rolled out a year later, that`s where apple will continue beating everyone else, Phone operators don`t care about that, monthly payments is all they are after so giving them the hand on when we get our updates is just a big FAIL

    • EP_2012

      To be fair, if you want the “apple update experience” on an android phone, you get a Google Nexus device.

    • James Bertram

      In this case it’s not the carrier at fault, it is Samsung’s modification of Android, aka TouchWiz. So what you’ll have is FebMarch Samsung will release the final code to the carriers, and then you will have a wait past that as the carriers then certify their apps. Hopefully, Samsung has been nice and give them some beta firmware to play with so they can get a headstart but there is no certainty with that, But yeah if you want fast updates, Google Experience/AOSP devices are the way to go.

  • Khizar Ahmed

    Too slow update for S6 🙁 . I hate you Samsung

  • pcberdwin

    The model number for the Galaxy 5 is incorrect. It should list SM-G900 but instead lists SM-N900 which is Galaxy Note III.

  • Ettercap

    It better not be next month… We already waited a month many other flagships already have the update from other manufacturers. This is getting ridiculous the sooner the better Samsung…

    • Hazel

      S6, S6 Edge, Note 5, Note 4 and more is now available below

  • Jacob Harpole

    I agree …I’m done with andriod. Apple phones just work. They do what you want and they don’t take all the hassle. Theu get the updates all at the same time and you don’t have virus worries.

    • Nick Riley

      Same here…

    • Joshua Morris

      That’s not true… Apple has had more than its fair share of bugs and virus scares. But it is much simpler for the common consumer. If you’re into simplicity.

      • Kadri246

        That’s bull, and anyone who owns a mac or iDevice will agree with me. My home is filled with apple products and the only times i fret were when apple patched their OS to prevent airplay streaming via showbox or popcorn time and years ago i was forced to upgrade from the iPhone 4 because the new iOS update made it slow. The issues I have with the S6 edge I never encountered with my iPhone. Ram issues, screen brightness issues, battery drain issues and i can go on and on and on and… people complain about iOS battery drain, this is nothing compared to the s6. What I can say the S6 edge has over every other phone is the sexiness. No other phone can come close to the looks. Which in fact was why I bought it instead of another Android.

        • Synacks

          My home is filled with Apple, Google, Samsung, and Microsoft products and they all have about the same amount of issues as each other. Stop the blind loyalty following your “fave” company. Just get the best product with the best specs with the best update cycle and call it a day. Don’t sacrifice your life and time to be a full Company X or Company Y person. Just get the best product for whatever you buy, regardless of brand. Be open minded.

          • abn

            THATS IT get what makes you happy. Too many phones to choose from to be unhappy. I have s6 edge plus no update yet, fine, my phone works perfectly. Still would have to pay the bill either way. Yes you would think they would rush update but they didnt I guess its the end of the world. Trust me, thier sales arent gonna hurt. Actually there going to rise. So peeps. Get what makes you happy, your the one paying the bill. And as for the Iphone there not all that. Nephew always had one. Stopped at the 5 series. Said hed try something else out and he loves the s6 edge. Upgrading to s7. My sis has Lg g4 she will cough that phone up for the new sony. So different strokes for different folks. One thing all my F r iends…. agree on Lg g5 gimmick.

      • Jacob Harpole

        I do appreciate simplicity. I know there are billions of andriod lovers. I just prefer apple. I like not having to run Antivirus software too. All os have the potential to be hacked. Apple just seems less susceptible from my experience and patches there bugs quickly. Unlike andriod with can take months if you don’t have a nexus

        • Synacks

          If someone runs anti-virus on their Android, they’re pretty much an idiot. Both OS’s are just as difficult to hack.

          • xStokeRx

            Really andoid and ios have more malware and keyloggers then any other operating system and android is super easy to hack aka root access which probly 98% of devices it can be accessed i know of a hack threw sms were the person dosent even see the msg and it installs malware that grants root and intalls a keyloger then sends the info to a dedicated server with the same hack you can make long distance calls on there bill with an imei spoof so ya noting is secure unless you encrypt your device and encrypt all in and out data via vpn and monitor your device closely

  • Stian Hansen

    They are getting sued in the Netherlands. Only thing slower is the Windows 10 upgrade promosed by Microsoft for Lumia, like a year ago. Still waiting.

    • Total Faith

      I hope Samsung has to pay and update their devices much faster in a few months!!!

  • Ryan Whiteside

    It was supposed to be in mid-December!

  • Adel Mandani

    Thank you

  • Danny Baromen

    First they said December, then they said Jan and now it’s Feb/March… come now Samsung…

  • Martin Nichol

    This is the reason I moved to a Nexus Device. Loved my s6edge + but felt like Samsung never treated me like a flagship customer so moved.

  • siva

    I have never seen such an laziest company ever!!!! i think samsung tries to release the update on s7 release. i am dissapointing with the company

  • jeff the chef

    I jumped from LG G2 to Motorola x-play for that same reason. Waited well over a year for a lollipop update that LG canada never ended up releasing while everywhere else got it.

    There is a mistake on the leaked doc. The SM-n900X is a galaxy note 3 not an S5.
    I doubt about the “XTECH LEAKS” team’s sources.
