Original Galaxy A5 (2015) to get Marshmallow update real soon

Here’s a reason why we think the users of original Galaxy A5 (2015 edition, model no. A500x) are going to rock Marshmallow update very soon.

Well, we’ve spotted some Galaxy A5 sets from Korea, denoting model no. of SM-A500K/L/S/F1, certified at our favorite Wi-Fi authority, all the more running Android 6.0. And that makes us believe that the A5 2015’s Marshmallow update isn’t far now.

Uh BTW, the exact Android version mentioned is Android 6.0, not Android 6.0.1, so maybe there is some work to be done to get that special .1 at the end.

Because Samsung originates from Korea, and more importantly, their software team is based in Korea, it’s not surprising to see the Korean models getting first taste of Android 6.0 update.

So, even though A5 2015 is still making do with the Lollipop’s first iteration, version 5.0.x, the BIG Marshmallow update is definitely coming soon other A5 models like to A500H, A500F, A500FY, A500i, A500G, A500-whatever. Maybe within a month, what do you say?

BTW, keep an eye on our Galaxy A5 firmware page to download the latest build available of the device, including that of Marshmallow. The Galaxy A5 2016 already rocks Marshmallow, BTW.

Kapil still loves his Galaxy S2 i9100! No, really. And Galaxy Nexus! Need we say more what kind of guy he is? And he's also a die-hard Liverpool FC fan. Email: kapil@theandroidsoul.com
  • ;D in your firmware page, can you please add a section for A500FU please? Thanks!

    Such poor writing, guess everything went down the drain once I left. ?

      Oh boy, don’t judge too much.
      Everything did go down the drain obviously, but not because *you* went, it was because of *many* other reasons. And it happened before you went, which is why you were bid adios.

      Anyway, don’t keep ill feelings towards me and TAS dude, after all this is where you learnt things about blogging — don’t forget how many times we had to edit your posts to make them publish-able (pun intended).

      We didn’t give you admin access because of some obvious reasons. And you vindicated our decision by opening your own blog behind our back and using the news that we gave to you to publish at your site first.

      I hope you do better!

      Anyway, welcome to TAS! It must have been long time since you last checked.

      Lastly, we’re still doing good, you still don’t have our admin access yet, so you don’t know all things that are important, and matter. 😉

      P.S. You are right, too — my writing isn’t what it was used to be. Took long time off, actually! I hardly find time for blogging because of family businesses. Still, it’s a passion, so writing will be better in some time. Or I hope so.
