It has been more than a month since Google released Android 7.0 Nougat, and Samsung is now finding time to release a year old version of Android for its upper mid-range smartphone that was released last year. The company has now released the Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow update for the Galaxy A8 Duos in India.
The Galaxy A8 Android 6.0 update, which has a file size of 890MB, is now rolling out via OTA (over the air). Android 6.0, which was first released by Google in October 2015, brings granular controls for app permissions, Doze battery saving feature, Google Now on Tap, inbuilt support for fingerprint sensors via the Nexus Imprint API, and Unicode 8.0 emojis.
Samsung has also included performance improvements, bug fixes, improved stability, and September Android security patch with the update. As usual, the update is being rolled out in a phased manner, so don’t worry if you haven’t received the update notification yet. Keep checking for the update on your Galaxy A8 from the software update menu.
