These two flagships on T-Mobile finally get Android 6.0, about two weeks after hearing that the new firmware has reached the certification stage.

T-Mobile moved the Android Marshmallow firmware for the Galaxy S6 devices from the Manufacturer Development stage to its final certification process about two weeks ago and now the update is finally rolling out. After applying the update, the Samsung Galaxy S6 and Galaxy S6 Edge will be loaded with Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow.

The two Galaxy S6 flagships started to receive the firmware version G920TUVU3EPD1 and G925TUVU3EPD1 earlier today. This is a major update, so it is no surprise that its size matches the changes it brings - 1.2 GB. The changes are those one would expect from Marshmallow - Google Now on Tap, granular permissions, Doze mode, new emojis, as well as multiple minor fixes and tweaks, both visual and functional.

The update rolls out via OTA as usual, but can also be downloaded using Samsung Smart Switch. T-Mobile did not reveal all the details yet, but the update should include the security updates for April from Google as well.

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.
