The largest Galaxy S6 device on T-Mobile finally gets the massive Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow, a new firmware that has over 1.3 GB in size.

About one day after the Galaxy Note 5, Samsung's largest Galaxy S6 handset on T-Mobile receives Android 6.0.1 as well. Since T-Mobile updated the support page yesterday, the OTA notifications should have already reached the carrier's first Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge+ handsets by now.

This firmware update is massive, having over 1.3 GB in size. The build number is G928TUVU2DPD1 and the list of new features, changes, and fixes should be well known by now. Thanks to the new firmware, Galaxy S6 Edge+ users on T-Mobile will be able to enjoy Google Now on Tap, Doze mode, granular app permissions, the new web browser with integrated ad-blocker, new emojis, app icons, animations, and folder designs.

In addition to the above, the Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow-based firmware should also come with the latest security updates and multiple minor tweaks and fixes. Those who did not get the OTA notification yet can perform a manual check as usual, by going to Settings>About device>Software updates, but can also use Samsung Smart Switch on a PC.

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.
