Verizon is rolling out the Android Marshmallow 6.0.1 update with build number T377VVRU1BPD6 to its Samsung Galaxy Tab E 8.0 tablet (released four months ago) and it included the June security patch as well. Two other Samsung devices that are getting the latest firmware are the Note 4 phablet and Galaxy S5 Neo.
Android Marshmallow has been awaited by users for a long time and a month ago, it finally cracked 10 percent adoption. The first important update, 6.0.1, has already been released for Samsung’s major flagships and now it’s making its way to other models. The Samsung Galaxy Tab E 8.0 is a tablet that was released four months ago and Verizon subscribers are starting to receive the latest firmware. Users who haven’t been notified yet about the availability of Android Marshmallow 6.0.1 update for their devices can go to Settings > About Device and Check for Software Updates.
The installation file is very large, weighing in at 1GB, so it’s important to connect to a wireless network with a strong signal and to make sure that the battery has at least 50 percent juice left. Soon, other carrier such as T-Mobile, AT&T, US Cellular and Sprint will release Android Marshmallow 6.0.1 for the Galaxy Tab E 8.0.
Two other eligible devices that are following to be upgraded to Marshmallow 6.0.1 are the Galaxy Note 4 phablet connected to T-Mobile and the unlocked Galaxy S5 Neo. Verizon and Sprint have already rolled out the update to their Galaxy Note 4 and now T-Mobile is pushing out version number VU1DPE3/ VU2DPE3 to this phablet.
The file has a size of 1.5GB and you should do as we’ve told you above. The other device, Galaxy S5 Neo, is receiving build number G903FXXU1BPD4 of the update, but for the model number SM-G903F that was sold in the UK, Austria, Germany, Greece and the Netherlands. We remind you that the most important new features that were introduced in Marshmallow are Google Now on Tap, Doze mode, app permissions and app standby.
