Android Marshmallow to begin rolling out to Sprint’s Galaxy S6 and S6 Edge today

Even though the  Android N Developer Preview was released yesterday, Marshmallow is only on 2% of devices. The number should only increase as more OEMs release updates to last year’s flagship devices and starting today, Sprint is updating its Galaxy S6 and S6 Edge variants to Android 6.0.

Now that Samsung, LG, Sony and Alcatel have announced their flagship phones for 2016, its competition won’t be far behind. HTC is expected to announce the One M10 soon and Huawei will unveil the P9. While new phones are exciting, perhaps even better news is that last year’s best phones are now available at lower prices, and they’re still great smartphones.

TouchWiz-Marshmallow

With the latest version of Android, version 6.0 Marshmallow, reportedly scheduled to start arriving for Samsung devices at the end of the year and into next, today we get a look at changes to Samsung’s TouchWiz overlay coming in the update via XDA-Developers.

Among the changes are tweaks to the user interface (most noticeably in the notifications panel) with a new color palette that the report notes is now “ predominantly white, with the same green accents” as the previous design, as pictured above on a Note 5.

There are touches of Material design throughout, new animations, and cleaned-up menus, while some of the stock TouchWiz apps also get a fresh coat of paint. Here’s a quick look at few: expand full story

Newest Samsung Gear VR now available to pre-order for $100

Back at its event in August, when it launched the Galaxy Note 5 and Galaxy S6 Edge plus, Samsung also unveiled the first consumer-focussed Gear VR headset. The ‘Innovator Edition’ tag has been dropped, and you can now pre-order the latest version of the Samsung Gear VR from Best Buy for $99. It’s compatible with all the latest flagship Samsung Galaxy products including the Galaxy S6, S6 Edge, S6 Edge+ and Galaxy Note 5.

Samsung built the new Gear VR to be lighter and more comfortable to wear than its predecessor. It’s built with flexible padding, has an easy-to-use touchpad on the side, and ships with a 16GB microSD card loaded with 3D movie trailers and 360-degree videos to enjoy right out of the box.

Multiple companies are aiming to transform the way we view multimedia with virtual reality. Samsung partnered with Oculus to create an affordable, smartphone-powered headset, while Google developed the even more budget-friendly Cardboard. HTC went more high end with its Vive (which is yet to be released), and of course, there’s Oculus’ own-brand set among others. Even YouTube recently updated its Android app to enhance it with VR content and site-wide Cardboard compatibility.

In short, companies are seeing VR as the next step in multimedia and are betting big to make it happen. Whether or not the Gear VR becomes a lasting or memorable part of that move is yet to be seen.

128GB

Update: Samsung has informed The Verge that the listing of 128GB versions was a mistake, and that they do not have plans to sell either the Note 5 or S6 Edge+ with 128GB of storage.

While Samsung’s launch of the Galaxy S6 Edge+ and Galaxy Note 5 mentioned only 32GB and 64GB storage options, a number of people noted that Samsung’s U.S. website is also listing 128B versions of both devices …  expand full story

If you’ve got a Samsung Galaxy S6 edge and are on the Sprint network, you can expect to see an over-the-air upgrade to Android 5.1 over the next few days. The update provides better control over notifications, device protection that persists even after resetting to factory settings and the usual performance improvements and bug fixes.

Sprint has posted a support page showing the release, which states that updates are issued in stages and can take several days to hit all phones.

T-Mobile rolled out Android 5.1.1 to the Galaxy S6 and S6 edge earlier this month.

T-Mobile started rolling out Android 5.1.1 to Samsung Galaxy S6/edge owners

A few weeks after T-Mobile started rolling out Android 5.1.1 to Nexus 6 owners, it is now doing the same for the Samsung Galaxy S6 and S6 edge, reports SamMobile.

[New features] include a simplified exposure control system in the camera, a wallpaper parallax effect, and numerous changes in the user interface (like the option to remove the S Finder and Quick Connect buttons from the notifications shade.)

The upgrade is a 635MB over the air update.

If you’ve been holding out for the more rugged model, the Galaxy S6 Active hit AT&T’s online store last week.
