What do you know – the Marshmallow beta for the Samsung Galaxy S6/S6 edge that was supposed to be exclusive to South Korea, has started rolling out in the UK as well. The TouchWiz-zed Android 6.0 firmware comes in the form of a 1.2GB download and brings quite a few changes.

The RAW image capture, which was rumored for previous updates is now finally a reality, as well as the option to manually select a shutter speed. Adding apps to a folder is now possible from within the folder and lockscreen shortcuts are no longer limited to camera and dialer and can now be customized.

The power menu has changed from the small pop-up window it used to be for ages to a row of icons on a blurred background. And now that we’ve mentioned power, the update brings back the option to disable fast charging, if you’re particularly concerned about your battery’s health.

A redesign of the notification shade marks the departure from Lollipop, much like the blue/green combo introduced us to it. The new color scheme was featured in an earlier Samsung Marshmallow leak, and people seemed to believe it was fake on those grounds alone – well, apparently it’s the real deal.

Certainly, those are cosmetic changes, and there’s a lot going on under the hood as well. The initial information was that beta testing will last until January 18 and from then on the waiting game begins for the official rollout.
