At this point in time, Samsung has updated most of its flagship smartphones to Marshmallow. Samsung is now turning to its mid-range lineups before they begin dealing with Android N. Starting with the Galaxy A-series, the Galaxy A9 is first to get updated to Android 6.0.1 in China.
The Galaxy A9 is one of the first mid-range devices from the Korean tech giant to get updated to Marshmallow. Instead of updating to Android 6.0, the Galaxy A9 goes straight to Android 6.0.1, which includes a few extra touches to the interface. Some of the new features from Google include doze mode for battery saving, Now On Tap for contextual awareness, and simplified app permissions to keep you in control of your data.
Like usual, the update is rolling out over-the-air, meaning it could take up to a full week before everyone sees it on their device. To try to speed up the process, go into your device settings under ‘About device’ and then ‘software updates.’ Make sure you have at least 50% battery life in the tank before starting the update process. You should also connect to a nearby Wi-Fi network to avoid cellular overages. Expect Samsung’s other Galaxy A models to get the update in the weeks ahead. We’ll notify you as soon as it happens.
