Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge+ starts receiving Android Marshmallow… in Korea

Many an S6 Edge+ owner are probably irked by the fact the S7 Edge dropped so early, with just an ever so slightly smaller display in tow, much larger battery, more powerful processor, microSD support, and water resistance.

Let’s not forget about the newer iteration of Android pre-loaded on the latest dual-curved Samsung phablet, though the 5.7-inch OG should follow suit on the Marshmallow bandwagon before long as well.

In fact, a TouchWiz-“optimized” 6.0 OTA package is reportedly making its way to the Galaxy S6 Edge+ on Korean carrier SK Telecom, ahead of a nationwide, then ultimately worldwide rollout. Keep in mind all the other three 2015 Samsung flagships have recently begun receiving their own software promotions in select regions, but none of them can run Lollipop’s successor stateside yet.

It’ll likely be a while until the love is spread for the S6 Edge+ too, so right now, try not to fall into despair dreaming of 1GB+ enhancements and tweaks, including Doze mode, App Standby, Google Now on Tap, “permissions your way”, improved security, Secret Mode browsing, and Cross App multitasking.

We’re guessing Poland is the second country Marshmallows are headed for the Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge+ in, with others coming after the two in a matter of weeks.
