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.

Although I have been writing about new software and hardware for almost a decade, I consider myself to be old school. I always enjoy listening to music on CD or tape instead of digital files and I will not even get into the touchscreen vs physical keys debate. However, I also enjoy new technology, as I now have the chance to take a look at the future every day. I joined the Notebookcheck crew back in 2013 and I have no plans to leave the ship anytime soon.
