The list – Galaxy S5, S6, S6 Edge and Note 5– is growing every day as the company is gradually rolling out updates to all its devices launched last year, with few exceptions.
Now we are getting news that Samsung has started to roll out an update for the S6 Edge+ as well, earlier it was in Malaysia, but now it has been showering the Marshmallow love to its Indian and French users, as reported by the users on their twitter handles. There is now official word from the regional officials in the countries, about these updates, but it was certainly the point when the company announced that they’ll start sending the Over-the-Air updates to a list of devices. It was announced in mid-February, even before the MWC event where the company launched its two new Galaxy handset. And they come with Android 6.0 Marshmallow out of the box.
