After South Korea, Trinidad & Tobago is the next market to get the new firmware, with others coming soon as well.

When rolling out new Android updates for its handsets, Samsung usually targets its home market of South Korea first. Samsung Galaxy S5 makes no exception to this rule, as Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow for it finally moves out of South Korea and enters Trinidad & Tobago.

The update that hits Samsung Galaxy S5 flagships in Trinidad & Tobago as we speak is the same one which is already available in Korea. Its size is almost 1.5 GB, version number is G900MUBU1CPC3, and the new features it brings are the same as usual - Google Now on Tap, Doze mode, new emojis, granular app permissions, Chrome custom tabs, and more. Obviously, Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow for Samsung Galaxy S5 also packs multiple small fixes, tweaks, and the latest security patch (March version, not April one, although it has been spotted already).

This is an OTA update that rolls out progressively, so those anxious to get it faster can always use the manual check option. Now, it only remains to see when will Samsung bring it to the US. As soon as that happens, we will let you know.

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.
