An employee-only “Consumer Consultant Guide” pertaining to Samsung has apparently leaked out, showing the key features and powers the Samsung Galaxy S6 and Galaxy S6 Edge would inherit upon updating them to Android 6.0 Marshmallow OS.
Speaking of Android 6.0 Marshmallow update schedule, South Korean versions of the Galaxy S6 and S6 Edge received the firmware towards the end of January. Yesterday, we reported that T-Mobile Poland officially tweeted confirming the firmware update for the S6 series. Poland usually gets the firmware update quicker than other regions.
Since the update has already been rolled out in the home country of Samsung and it is about to begin in Europe, it is just a matter of weeks before the OTA update starts rolling out in the U.S. We’ll keep you updated.
Moving on to the leaked features of the Android 6.0, after installation, the Galaxy S6 series of devices should see the new Doze mode. This feature puts the phone to sleep deliberately, once it becomes inactive for a pre-defined period of time, to save battery life.
This is achieved by stopping the background apps from running unnecessarily and in turn, depleting the battery. However, Phone calls and SMS messages will work as expected.
The Google Now On Tap feature will apparently display search results depending on the current content of the screen, Phone Arena reported. Android 6.0 update will give advanced app permissions to the device user.
Furthermore, the lock screen clock on the Galaxy S6 and Galaxy S6 Edge will reportedly be “centered.” Also, the icons in the lock screen will be more colorful after the update. The Galaxy S6 Edge users, in specific, will be able to play with a slew of display modes on the side-edge screen from the options given in the settings.
