The release includes Samsung's Android security patch that bundles patches from Google and Samsung both, in addition to nine fixes from Samsung for vulnerabilities. Folks over Sammobile say the update is currently live for users in the Netherlands. So those residing in the firmware-supported region can manually check for the availability of the update by going to Settings>> About device>> Software Update>> Update Now.

Meanwhile, another Samsung device , the Galaxy Tab S, 8.4 is receiving over-the-air update for Android Marshmallow. This rollout is slightly surprising as it was earlier reported that Samsung might not release Marshmallow for 8.4in and 10.5in models of the first generation Galaxy Tab S.

At the moment, the update is seeding for the Wi-Fi variant bearing model number SM-T700 for users in the Netherlands. The new Marshmallow build XXU1CPI1 weighs in around 800MB and incorporates all the changes and goodies present in Android 6.0.1.
