T-Mobile was very quick to update the Galaxy S6 and Galaxy S6 Edge to Android Marshmallow, but now the time has come for Sprint's Galaxy S6 users to enjoy the same treatment. The update is very fresh, as it started to roll out via OTA earlier today.

According to Twitter user Jason F, "Galaxy S6 just got a present via OTA." Less than an hour ago, Sprint replied to his message with the following line "Wrapped in a little yellow bow. From us to you!" and removed all possible doubts.

The update is quite large, having over 1200 MB in size. The build number is the same as that of the version that already reached most unlocked Galaxy S6 handsets, namely G920PVPU3CPB6. The highlights are obviously the same, including Google Now on Tap, Doze mode, a new vibration pattern for calls and messages, as well as an updated TouchWiz interface. 

As usual, those who are in a hurry can check for the update manually via Settings>About phone>System updates>System updates>Update Now.

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.
