Are you already tired of waiting for when Samsung will actually update your flagship devices to Android 6.0 Marshmallow? Well, don’t hold your breath just yet since there is still no official announcement from the OEM, even as beta testing is already ongoing. But what we have is a supposedly leaked document that outlines the rollout plan for the update for the Galaxy S6, Galaxy S6 edge, Galaxy S6 edge+, and the Galaxy Note 5, and it will all be happening this coming February and March.

Of course we cannot fully rely on this leaked image, but maybe, just maybe, this is the correct time frame that Samsung is planning to roll out the awaited update. According to “XTech Leaks”, the Galaxy S6 edge+ and the Galaxy Note 5 will be updated first and that’s scheduled by next month already. Then the Galaxy S6 and Galaxy S6 edge will then follow sometime between February and March. Finally, the Galaxy S5, Galaxy Note 4, and Galaxy Note Edge will receive their updates between March and April. So far, those are the only devices that will be Marshmallow-ed.

Most probably, the current flagship device, the Galaxy S6 will have already been supplanted by the new flagship by the time it receives the Android 6.0 (or 6.0.1?) update. The upcoming Galaxy S7 (unless they change the name or something) is expected to be announced at the Mobile World Congress this February. Samsung usually does a side event before the expo actually starts.

Again, we take this leaked image with a grain of salt, and only time (or rather a few weeks) will tell if there’s any truth to it. Also, the 6.0 update will hopefully be followed quickly by 6.0.1 since there are only very minor updates there, although you never know with Google and Samsung (plus, maybe your carrier).
