Galaxy S5 Plus gets Android Marshmallow
Android Marshmallow update rolling out for Galaxy S5 Plus users Samsung

Samsung is rolling out the latest Android Marshmallow version for Galaxy S5 Plus users, bearing model number SM-G901F. As the updated is being rolled out in a phased manner, it will take some time before it reaches all users of the device. Currently, S5 Plus users in Germany are being seeded the update.

The rollout started a few weeks back for the global version of the Galaxy S5 (SM0G900F). The Galaxy S5 Plus is a powerful variant of the S5 that uses the quad-core Snapdragon 805 processor instead of Snapdragon 805, which powers the regular version.

The handset was updated to Android Lollipop in March 2015 and Samsung did not take long to release the Marshmallow update after it was released to the standard S5 model.

Along with the new Android version, users will be able to take advantage of a bunch of Marshmallow goodies which are Google Now on Tap, Doze mode and permission support for apps. The update bumps the build version of the phone to G901FXXU1CPE1, reports Sammobile.
