This week the folks at Samsung have confirmed that a relatively wide variety of Galaxy smartphone devices will be receiving an update to Android 6.0 Marshmallow. Google’s latest operating system will be delivered to the newest set of Samsung smartphones, including the Samsung Galaxy S6, the Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge, and the Samsung Galaxy Note 5. You’ll also find this update coming to the Galaxy Tab A tablet and a set of devices released over the past year or two.

Android Marshmallow coming to Galaxy S6, Note 5, not S5

The following list of devices has been confirmed by Samsung to be getting an update from the manufacturer to Android 6.0 Marshmallow. This will be the Samsung-modified version of the software, not a “vanilla” version as would be delivered to a Nexus device. To our knowledge this is a fully exhaustive list of Samsung devices set to receive this update FOR NOW – there may be more in the future.

• Galaxy Note 5
• Galaxy S6 Edge+
• Galaxy S6 Edge
• Galaxy S6
• Galaxy S6 Duos
• Galaxy Note 4
• Galaxy Note 4 Duos
• Galaxy Tab A
• Galaxy Alpha

This list does not include the Samsung Galaxy S5 or original Galaxy Note Edge, but we wouldn’t rule these very capable devices out just yet. Samsung generally updates devices at least year out from release, especially if they’re hero mobile machines like the Galaxy S series.

UPDATE – the Galaxy Note Edge has been added to the list!
