According to a tweet from the usually reliable leakster @LlabTooFeR.  Google seems to have presumably started the rollout of Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow for its Android One range of smartphones.


Early reports indicate that Android 6.0.1 does not really bring anything new. The update probably only contains some bug fixes and stability improvements.


According to AndroidBeat, Cherry Mobile G1 smartphone in the Philippines is among the first Android One devices to receive the Android 6.0.1 update.

Let's get this out of the way first; the iPhone 7 has scored significantly more on AnTuTu than any other Android smartphone in existence till date. The 178,397 points that it scored according to a recent report is just off the charts. However, the new Apple A10 chip did have fewer pixels to push than any of the flagship Android handsets on the list as the iPhone 7 only sports a resolution of 750 × 1334. In spite of that, it is currently the reigning king sitting on top of the list (unofficially for now).



That being said, Chinese handsets from manufacturers like Xiaomi, Vivo, LeEco, Nubia, Lenovo and of course, OnePlus are on top of the AnTuTu score chart when it comes to Android devices. The much loved OnePlus 3 leads the table for now with a score of 140288, followed by the Vivo Xplay 5 Elte (138,706), the LeEco LeMax 2 (138,026), the Nubia Z11 (137,685), the Lenovo Zuk Z2 pro (136,853) and the Xiaomi Mi5 (136,773).


It is a bit surprising to see the Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge trail so far behind at the number 7 spot in 2016, because the S6 was leading the pack last year convincingly at one point. Since these Chinese smartphones are a lot cheaper than the ones made by Samsung, in spite of being manufactured with quality hardware, are we witnessing the slow rise of new leaders in the smartphone industry?

Samsung Turkey has just published some very good news for Samsung smartphone owners on its website. The post clears all confusion regarding which Samsung handsets and tablets are going to get updated to Nougat in 2017, once and for all. Additionally, it also clearly mentions planned dates on which the updates are supposed to go live for their respective smartphone/tablet models. We were pleasantly surprised to see that the Korean giant has included even the older and low-end smartphones like the Galaxy J5 and the Galaxy On7 from 2015 to this list.



The only thing to keep in mind is that this is a Nougat roadmap designed for Turkey and therefore, the dates will vary according to your country. Nevertheless, the list does give us at least a rough idea about when to expect it for our respective smartphones. Once the update gets rolled out, it's only a matter of time before it reaches all regions. As expected, the Galaxy S7 range is the top priority, with most of the handsets in the range already being updated to Nougat 7.0 as you read this. It will probably be the end of the year or even early next year before the J5 and the Galaxy J7 Prime gets upgraded, but at least you know that it's coming!

Head over to our firmware section to find all the latest available updates for your smartphone.



Just like the OEM has been doing for the last few months, March saw Samsung rolling out the security update of the month to certain low and mid-range handsets first, but now it's time for some of the higher end models to get the same treatment as well. As per reports by SamMobile, the Galaxy Note 8, the Galaxy A7 (2017) and the Galaxy S7 are the latest handsets in Samsung's arsenal to get the March security update via OTA.


If you own a Note 8, you should see your update arrive in the form of firmware version N950NKSU3CRC2. As for the Galaxy S7 and the Galaxy A7 (2017), firmware versions G930FXXS2DRC3 and A720FXXU3BRC2 should be making their way onto the two devices. While this means that all major regions should start receiving the same updates pretty soon, South Africa is so far the only place to get the same for the A7 (2017). Samsung had already started rolling out the March security update for the Note 8 in most regions and now South Korea has joined in. The S7 is receiving the patch in Europe at the moment.

Although Samsung has already started releasing the April security update to one of its low-end handsets even before Google's official declaration of the patch, not all of Samsung's handsets have been updated with the patch for this month yet. Nevertheless, the company is steadily doing so and the Galaxy C7 Pro, Galaxy A8+ (2018) and the Galaxy S7 Edge were the latest models to receive the update.

 

If you own a Galaxy S7 Edge in Europe, you should see firmware version G935FXXS2DRC3 make its way onto your phone anytime now. Since the Galaxy C7 Pro was released only to very limited markets, India has been reported to be the only nation as of now to get the same patch in the form of firmware version C701FDDU1BRC2. Strangely enough, the Galaxy A8+ (2018) is not being updated as regularly as its smaller counterpart, aka the Galaxy A8 (2018). Nevertheless, the model is now receiving firmware version A730FXXU2ARC9 with the March security update in Russia and Uzbekistan.
