A new roadmap of the Android 6.0 Marshmallow update for Samsung smartphones have surfaced. It now states that all the 2015 flagship smartphones from the company are slated to receive an Android M update by next month.

In November 2015, a leaked document from Samsung had surfaced stating the Galaxy Note 5 and Galaxy S6 Edge+ would be updated to Android 6.0 by December 2015. It also revealed that the Galaxy S6 and Galaxy S6 Edge smartphones would be updated to Android M by January. However, the South Korean tech giant is yet to release the Android upgrade for the aforementioned smartphones.

Now, Mobi Picker has revealed a fresh roadmap of the Android 6.0 Marshmallow updates. The publication recently reported that it had received an internal document from a leaker called XTECH LEAKS.

The leaked document reportedly revealed that the Galaxy Note 5 and Galaxy S6 Edge+ smartphones will receive the Android 6.0 Marshmallow update in February. The Galaxy S6 and Galaxy S6 Edge smartphones are slated to receive Android 6.0 upgrade between February to March.

The Galaxy Note 4, Galaxy Note Edge and Galaxy S5 smartphones will be updated to Android M between March to April.  Speculations are rife that Android M updates for all the aforementioned smartphones have received approval by Samsung.

If these leaks are to be believed, it seems the arrival of Android 6.0 Marshmallow is imminent for these smartphones. The carrier variants of these handsets are expected to receive the update once the testing process is completed, Phone Arena reported.

Since Samsung has released Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow beta for Galaxy S6 and S6 Edge users, rumours are also indicating that an Android 6.0.1 update will soon be made available for other Samsung smartphones after the release of Android 6.0. The South Korean tech giant is expected to release its 2016 flagship smartphone, Galaxy S7 in the coming month. It will come preinstalled with Android 6.0 Marshmallow OS.
