Android 6.0 Marshmallow starts rolling out to Samsung Galaxy A7 and Galaxy A5 (2016)

While Google officially released Android 6.0 in early October - over eight months ago - Samsung didn't start upgrading its handsets to Marshmallow until February.

The South Korean tech giant has continued to make the update available to more of its devices in the months since then, and two more handsets have now been added to the list. Android 6.0.1 has started to make its way to the Galaxy A7, and to the newest Galaxy A5 (2016).

As GSM Arena reports, Marshmallow is already available for both of those devices in Russia; and for the Galaxy A5 (2016) in Serbia and Turkey.

This is just the beginning of the global rollout for these devices of course - expect availability to expand to other markets in the weeks ahead. Meanwhile, Google is already preparing its next major OS update, currently known as 'Android N', which will be released this summer.
