A leaked video showcases a recent versatile app model for advanced edge functionality on the S6 edge.

Marshmallow is definitely the recent buzz-word in the Android realm and even though a lucky few are already enjoying dozing, the recent runtime permission model and many other goodies, most users are still eagerly awaiting their OTA. As a leading authority in the realm, a lot of pressure is on Samsung to deliver a recent and improved experience to millions of users and by the looks of things, the Korean giant intends to do things correct and be on its best game.

A newly unearthed video of what appears to be a genuine Samsung Galaxy S6 edge, running Android 6.0.1 gives us a hint of the lengths Samsung has gone to, striving for the best possible Marshmallow experience. From the looks of things, the OEM's edged devices are in for a major functionality overhaul in relation to their curved panels. The clip showcases a recent app model to hold advantage of assumed form factor.

The apps are divided into two categories – Edge feeds for receiving information at a glance and Edge panels for added functionality. During the quick overview we spot quite a few recent apps, working on the curve, presumably part of the default bundle. These include My Apps for recently used apps, Task for commonly used apps, Quick Tools, S Planner, Weather, Twitter, Yahoo, and Sports. However, links to the Galaxy Store definitely recommdiscontinue that the recent app type is expandable and more experiences are on the way.

If you are currently using and S6 edge or another recent Samsung phone, then chances are that Android Marshmallow is coming your way soon. An alleged roadmap actually recommends a December release for the Note 5 and S6 edge+, but seeing how it is almost New Year, we are more inclined to wait on an OTA in January, along with one for the S6 and S6 edge. Also, it is worth noting that some UK owners of the latter pair can participate in a Marshmallow beta test up until January 18, which is also worth checking out.
