Samsung is rolling out the Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow for the Galaxy S5 device. The update was rolled out only within South Korea on 21 March, but is now available for the 2014 flagship model all over the world.
Galaxy S5 owners in Trinidad and Tobago have received the update with build number G900MUBU1CPC3 for the SM-G900L model, Ubergizmo reported. While, S5 users in the US can expect to receive the update via their network providers.
Meanwhile, Sprint has reportedly started rolling out 6.0.1 to Galaxy Note 4 and Note 5 users in the US even before the Android 6.0 Marshmallow update was rolled out for Galaxy S6 Edge+ devices.
The Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow update will be the first update for the Galaxy S5, since the Android Lollipop. The OTA (over the air) update is slated to be 1.47GB in size, which will also includes signature Marshmallow features such as Google Now on Tap, Doze and several hundred new emojis as well as the March Android security patch.
Galaxy S5 users would be notified about the update automatically, when their device receives it. However, users can manually check for the 6.0.1 Marshmallow update by simply checking for it in settings. Once inside settings, go to "About Phone" and then click on "System updates". Finally, click on "Check for update".
Once the update is received, Galaxy S5 users will have to download it via Wi-Fi as it is massive in size. Once the update has been downloaded, click on the "Restart & Install" button, which will result in the device rebooting automatically. Once the installation process begins, users will get a "Installing System Upgrade" notice, after which the system upgrade will occur automatically and the device will start running Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow.
Samsung is also slated to roll-out the OS to other Galaxy devices such as Galaxy Alpha, Galaxy A3, Galaxy A7, Galaxy A8, Galaxy E5, Galaxy E7, Galaxy J2 and Galaxy J5 soon.
