Android 6.0 Marshmallow arrives on the Galaxy S6 duo:

The Android 6.0 Marshmallow beta update for the latest Galaxy S6 duo brings all the new features with the inevitable TouchWiz skinned upon it. As you can spot in the screenshots shared below, TouchWiz looks further clean now with this latest release. Previous reports had claimed that Samsung is aiming to have a skin design that looks more inspired from the Material Design ideology that Google has been incorporating since the release of Android Lollipop. Following are the new features, followed by screenshots of Android 6.0 Marshmallow on Samsung Galaxy S6 and Galaxy S6 Edge (thanks to Sammobile).

  • A lot of nice and fluid animations and effects
  • Option to save images in RAW format
  • Pro mode in the camera app brings a shutter speed option to the Galaxy S6 and the Galaxy S6 edge

  • New color for quick settings panel
  • An option to enable or disable fast charging
  • An ability to add apps to a folder directly from within the folder
