Samsung is on the verge of updating its flagship for 2015, the galaxy s6, to the newest flavor of android, marshmallow. This was evident from the leaked screen shots that redesigns the software in a minor way.
Samsung is one of the android’s OEM who produces close to 30 different types of phones each year. Updating all these phones to the latest version of android is a herculean task. Recent leaks also show the road map for the update period of the devices to the marshmallow.
But his is the first time a solid piece of evidence that suggest the marshmallow is coming to the latest devices starting with galaxy s6 and the note 5. The leaks point towards the Chinese build of galaxy s6 android firmware. The changes are evident as Samsung is stripping down the Touchwiz interface to have a minimalistic and efficient approach.
The major changes took place in the notification bar with TOUCHWIZ changing to white accents instead of black. More number of options are made available in this area.
The next major change will take place in the camera app. Samsung will now allow you to set your camera options manually. Adjusting the shutter speed, ISO, exposure and resolution is now possible. These features are already available in the note 5 but this addition will impress photographers who know the value of manual setting to get the optimal shot of their subject.
This update also rumored to come with the monthly security update that Samsung promised for its phones. Android had been vulnerable to bugs such as Stagefright and google is issuing security patches regularly to make android phones secure. Samsung is also doing the same with its phones.
With the marshmallow update, the galaxy s6 gains the ability to use google’s latest now on tap feature and individual app permission. Are you excited?
