Adhering to the same trend it typically follows with Android updates, Samsung begun rolling out Android 6 Marshmallow update for the Galaxy S5 in South Korea earlier this week.
As a 2014 flagship, the Galaxy S5 is undoubtedly a relatively older device. But having stated that, it is still capable of running the latest firmware from Google.
Apparently, S5 users in Trinidad and Tobago are already receiving update G900MUBU1CPC3, upgrading the device to Android 6.0.1, PhoneArena reports. Off late – more specifically in the past one week or so – a number of Samsung devices have received Android Marshmallow updates including the Galaxy Note 4, Note 5, as well as the Galaxy S S6 Edge+.
While it is not yet known how long it will take for the update to reach S5 users in other locations, considering how Samsung made it happen for Trinidad & Tobago users almost immediately after South Korea, it is likely that we won’t have to wait much.
Since Marshmallow will be the first update for S5 users after Android Lollipop, the OTA will be massive in size – approximately 1.47 GB. The OTA update will carry allowing all of Marshmallow’s marquee features such as Google Now on Tap, Doze, over 200 emoji, Match Android security patch, and much more.
If you don’t see a notification about the availability of the update, make it a point to manually check periodically. All you’ll have to do is go to the Settings menu and then select the About Device option. There you will see the option for update (if it’s available).
