In case you didn’t know, Android N preview has already been released. What this means is that the full and stable version of this new mobile operating system will be out and running very soon.
The latest reports claim that Samsung will want to make amends with what has been happening with Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow update. Some of the company’s units such as Samsung Galaxy Note 5, Samsung Galaxy S6, S6 Edge/Edge+, Samsung Galaxy Note 4 as well as the newly released Samsung Galaxy S7 and S7 Edge will be updated with this operating system after it is fully unveiled. There are even further rumors that claim Samsung Galaxy Note 6 will come preinstalled with Android N, making it the first Samsung device to come with the OS out of the box.
As far as Samsung Galaxy S5 is concerned, it remains to be seen. But given the capabilities of this device in terms of hardware, it is possible that Samsung might push the Android N to the S5.
One thing that still remains a huge concern for Google is the fact that Android Marshmallow has yet to reach volumes of devices. This is despite the fact that the OS has been around for about six months, something that has largely been attributed to carriers and OEMs. So, the question that begs answers is that will the new Android N update be smooth or the same story?
Android M update status
Most smartphone OEMs are currently pushing the Marshmallow update to their devices. Samsung is one of them and at the moment, the Korean tech giant has already availed the update to several of its flagship devices.
The company is rushing the updates to its devices as the release of Android N nears. Those using Samsung Galaxy S6, S6 Edge and S6 Edge+ can already get the Android M update in the home country of South Korea. The update is also rolling out in other parts of the world, including the U.S., UK, Netherlands, and Germany, among others.
Users of Samsung Galaxy S5 in South Korea are already receiving the Marshmallow update. The update is also said to have begun an international rollout. As a result, it is only a matter of confirmation from carriers before the OS finally hits U.S. units. Samsung Galaxy Note 4 is also receiving the Marshmallow update in the U.S.
If your unit hasn’t received the Android Marshmallow update yet, you can check for it manually by heading to your phone’s About Settings.
