Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge is yet to receive Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow update but a video has been posted on YouTube demonstrating the overhauled edge panel functionality of the phone.
Several posts on various forums also suggest that the edge interface has been improved after the update. The apps in the Edge Screen v1.0.52 of the Galaxy S6 Edge are divided into two categories – Edge Feeds and Edge Panels. While the Edge feeds apps are for taking a quick look at the useful information from different apps, the Edge panels add more functionality to the curved display, making more use of it than before.
Samsung launched a beta testing program last week, by which the registered users will start receiving upcoming firmware updates and the users can share their feedback to the company. This helps Samsung to fix issues before rolling out the final update globally. The Galaxy Beta Program is for the Android 6.0 Marshmallow update for the Galaxy S6 and Galaxy S6 Edge smartphones.
The leaked Android 6.0 Marshmallow update road-map suggests that Galaxy S6 and Galaxy S6 Edge will receive the update in January, and Galaxy Note 4 and Galaxy Note Edge are slated to receive the update in February.
