Perhaps one of the biggest complaints about the Android ecosystem is how slow updates get rolled out to devices. This is mainly because manufacturers and carriers have to go through a lot of testing before releasing updates for their devices. But, as of today, Android Marshmallow will be rolling out to several Samsung devices via an OTA update.
The first devices on the list are the Samsung Galaxy A5 and A7. According to SamMobile, the Wi-Fi Alliance has certified the regional versions of Galaxy A5 (2016) and Galaxy A7 (2016) that were running on Android 6.0. While no Marshmallow devices have been spotted in the wild just yet, this gives Samsung users a big hint that their devices are Marshmallow ready and will be getting the update any day now.
Next up on the list is the Samsung Galaxy Tab S2 9.7. Released back in 2015, the device has been running Android Lollipop ever since, so it is probable that users are anticipating an update. The release of this update has started in Germany and Italy and is expected to be rolling out through other European countries. For the folks in the US, carriers will be rolling the updates out which could take longer. The smaller Galaxy Tab S2 8.0 is expected to be getting an update this month as well.
