Although only the unlocked Galaxy S5 handsets on LG Uplus in South Korea got the update so far, global rollout of the new firmware is imminent.

Samsung Galaxy S5 has been around for almost two years, and it is good to see it still gets the latest Android updates, although they might not come as fast as some users would like. The handset launched in April 2014 with Android 4.4.2 KitKat on board and now it started to get Android 6.0.1 in South Korea.

According to SamMobile, the Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow update has begun to reach all unlocked variants of the Samsung Galaxy S5 (SM-G900L) that operate in South Korea, on LG Uplus' network. Since we talked about Android 6.0.1 many times so far, there are no surprises left. The update brings multiple fixes, improvements, and tweaks, as well as Google Now on Tap, Doze mode, new emojis, and more.

Since updates that reach the market in South Korea usually go live worldwide pretty fast, you might want to check manually for the update on your Galaxy S5 already. Just remember that some carriers might be slower in delivering this update. We will get back to this update once the major carriers in the US introduce it as well.
