The new firmware has been spotted in both Italy and Germany, so Galaxy S5 users in the US should also get ready to receive it soon.

Samsung Galaxy S5 received Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow in South Korea a month ago, and now the updated firmware finally reaches Europe. Italy and Germany are apparently the first markets to get the update, but others should follow soon. Although there is no official information, this update should reach the US pretty soon as well.

Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow for Samsung Galaxy S5 comes with the usual changes and new features, including Google Now on Tap, Doze mode, granular app permissions, new emojis, multiple fixes, tweaks, and the latest security patches. In addition to these, the new firmware also comes with updates to the TouchWiz UI by Samsung. The build number is G900FXXU1CPD3, and the size of the update is 820 MB.

As usual, the updated firmware comes via OTA, but those who did not get the notification yet should go to Settings>About Devices>Software Update and hit the Update Now button.

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.
