The two-year-old Galaxy Tab S launched with Android KitKat, then its firmware was updated to Lollipop, and now Samsung has decided to provide a Marshmallow update to its users as well.

The original Galaxy Tab S tablet arrived in mid-2014 and, back then, it came loaded with Android KitKat. In the meantime, Samsung updated its firmware to Lollipop and now, more than two years after its release, owners of this Android tablet got an official confirmation that Marshmallow will hit their devices as well. 

Although Samsung Netherlands denied that such a thing would happen only a few days ago, Samsung Greece confirmed earlier today that the original Galaxy Tab S tablet is on the Android 6.0 Marshmallow update list. While these contradictions might not sound like an official denial or confirmation of the upcoming firmware update, SamMobile bumped into a user manual on Samsung's website that confirms it.

Unfortunately, the manual mentioned above does not mention a date for the new firmware release. However, since Android 7.0 Nougat is already official, the original Galaxy Tab S will probably get Marshmallow in a matter of weeks.
