Awesome news for the Galaxy S6 Edge+ and Note 5 owners! These phablets connected to T-Mobile are finally getting the latest Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow update and the carrier’s support pages show users how to check if the operating system is ready to be installed on their devices.
Android Marshmallow was released in October 2015 and the update started rolling out in November, to Google’s Nexuses and Motorola’s Moto models, but Samsung didn’t rush to make the move until late March. Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow was firstly released in South Korea and in the US, the upgrade process went very slowly because wireless carriers had to test it before implementing a rollout.
At the beginning of April, Marshmallow was already running on 4.6 percent of all Android devices, up from 2.3 percent of all active devices that visited the Google Play Store in March. In the next period, we’re expecting more devices to be upgraded, but for now, we’ll talk about the galaxy S6 Edge+ and Note 5 phablets that have been released in August 2015, with Android 5.1.1 Lollipop out of the box.
T-Mobile will finally upgrade these two devices on May 20 and users with a WiFi connection will be notified to download the update when it will be available. But, they will be also able to check for the update manually, by going to Settings and scrolling down until they see the System section, where they will tap on the About device setting and then on Software Update and OK. It’s important to be connected to a wireless network because the installation file, which carries the build number G928TUVU2DPD1, is vey big, weighing 1.34 gigabytes.
Marshmallow 6.0.1 brings 200 new emoji, the Do not disturb mode and monthly security updates. Most likely, the Galaxy S6 Edge Plus and Note are getting Android’s April security patch.
