Samsung fans who want a sturdy flagship and already got the Galaxy S6 Active can finally enjoy Android Marshmallow. This handset has begun to receive the Android 6.0.1-based firmware from AT&T yesterday and the model number targeted is, as expected, SM-G890A.
According to the official support page, the update includes Android 6.0 Marshmallow and WiFi calling capabilities. All the Marshmallow goodies should be present, including Google Now on Tap, Doze mode, granular app permissions, new emojis, the updated TouchWiz UI that matches Google's UI changes, multiple minor tweaks and fixes, as well as the latest security patches.
The update comes in a file having 1,441 MB in size, with build number MMB29K.G890AUCU3CPE4 and baseband version G890AUCU3CPE4. This update rolls out in stages so those who did not get the notification yet should do a manual check via Settings > About Device > Software Update > Check for updates.

In my early school days, I hated writing and having to make up stories. A decade later, I started to enjoy it. Since then, I published a few offline articles and then I moved to the online space, where I contributed to major websites that are still present online as of 2021 such as Softpedia, Brothersoft, Download3000, but I also wrote for multiple blogs that have disappeared over the years. I've been riding with the Notebookcheck crew since 2013 and I am not planning to leave it anytime soon. In love with good mechanical keyboards, vinyl and tape sound, but also smartphones, streaming services, and digital art.
