A job posting revealed that Nokia was indeed working on a cloud-powered OS based on Linux.
The S5 has started getting its Android 6.0 treat, with the update rolling out to the SM-G900F model in Sri Lanka.

It seems Samsung has begun building software-based flash option for selfies on handsets as well, as the Galaxy J3 (2016) also comes with the feature out of the box, despite running Android 5.1.1 Lollipop and not Marshmallow. It is possible the J3 got the option because it’s from the same lineup as the Galaxy J5 and Galaxy J7, which sport an actual flash for the front camera, but we wouldn’t be surprised to see every new Samsung smartphone henceforth offering a flash option for the front-facing camera.
The Galaxy J5 (2016) and Galaxy J7 (2016) are the first affordable smartphones from Samsung to sport a metallic body (while keeping a removable back cover and battery). Their specs include 5.2-inch 720p and 5.5-inch Full HD Super AMOLED displays, quad-core and octa-core processors, 2GB and 3GB of RAM, 16GB of internal storage, a microSD slot, a 13-megapixel rear camera, and a 5-megapixel front camera with an LED flash. Both handsets feature large batteries – a 3,100 mAh unit on the J5 and a 3,300 mAh unit on the J7.
Since Marshmallow has been available for six months and it’s only found on less than 3% of devices, you can imagine how long it will be before Android N makes its way to end users. Google surprised us all when it released a developer preview build earlier this month, and the final build of Android N is expected to be released sometime this summer. So if trends stay true, we can expect N to become the most widely used version of Android sometime in 2018. Seriously.
If you own a Galaxy Note 5 and reside in the land of maple syrup, we have some fairly good news on the sticky-sweet treat front; as of now, Galaxy Note 5 is being furnished with Android 6.0 Marshmallow in Canada.
