Samsung is rolling out the Android Marshmallow version 6.0.1 update for the Galaxy S5 or the SM-G900L models but only available in South Korea as of the moment, the Samsung community site SamMobile revealed.
It has previously been reported that the Marshmallow updates for the Note 4, S4 and S5 will be delayed to the second quarter of this year. With the roll out of the Android 6.0.1 for S5 in South Korea being started, users of the two other Samsung models could have high hopes that their devices can also get the official update. But be warned that it’s not a guarantee, even for S5 users in other countries.
In fact, the Marshmallow sent out in South Korea is only available for the unlocked S4 under the network of Seoul-based LG Uplus. But at least it’s a sign that Samsung is currently on track when it comes to distributing the Marshmallow updates for the three models mentioned.
A Look into the Marshmallow
Android 6.0.1 brings to the S5 devices the latest version of the open-source OS of Google. Speed is also optimized for the users’ convenience. There are also various improvements on the operating system’s stability as well as fixes to some glaring bugs. All in all, users of the Marshmallow will definitely enjoy an improved overall experience with their S5.
For those who can’t wait to receive the Marshmallow into their own S5, the OS can be manually flashed into their devices by downloading the software package. Specifically, it has a changelist of 110166628 with PDA and CSC codes of G900LKLU1CPC3. Built date is stamped at Mon, 14 Mar 2016 15:58:52 +0000.
