Ever since Google officially unveiled its latest Android iteration, Android Marshmallow, Samsung seems to be the only company that seems to be working hard to update as many of its devices as possible. We have seen a good number of Galaxy devices get the Marshmallow treatment from the high end ones to even devices such as the Galaxy J5. The update started seeding to the J5 a few days ago and we are now getting information that some devices in the Galaxy A family are getting it too.

The two devices in the Galaxy A family that are getting the update are the Samsung Galaxy A5 (2016) and the Galaxy A7. The update has just started rolling out to some users of the two devices in some parts of Eastern Europe. This update has just started seeding to a few users so be patient if you don’t have it on your device just yet.

The updates bring Android Marshmallow as well as the latest security patches for June. Both updates are available over the air and are over 1.3 GB in size so you should make sure you have a good connection before you start updating.

So far, users in Russia have reported seeing the updates for their devices and we are getting information that it is seeding to users in Serbia, Turkey and some other countries. Over here in Kenya, you should expect the update to be available on your device within a few days or weeks, no official communication has been issued by Samsung so you have to keep of checking if it is available for you to download on your device.
