At the beginning of this year, Samsung made it clear that it had plans to update most of its flagship smartphones launched within the last two years to Android Marshmallow. There was even a leaked roadmap that revealed that all the recent Galaxy S flagships were to get this update by April this year. We even saw the update start rolling out to the Galaxy S6 and S6 Edge back in February.
With the S6 and S6 Edge out of the way, Samsung has moved to the Galaxy S5. Some people using the Galaxy S5 in Samsung’s home country of South Korea have received this update on their devices. The Galaxy S5 was launched back in 2014 and seeing Samsung still supporting it is very impressive as most manufacturers do not do this.
This update is currently available to the Galaxy S5 with model number SM-G900L and so you have to be patient if you have another model. You can check out the model number of your device by heading to the setting menu and then ‘About Phone’ section.
The update has just started rolling out so you have to wait a little bit before you get it on your device especially if you are in other regions apart from Samsung’s home country. This is an OTA update so be sure you will be getting a notification when the update is available for your device. You can also check for the update yourself by heading to your phone’s setting page.
