The update has about 1 GB in size and delivers Android 6.0.1 to the LTE variant of the Galaxy Tab S2 on T-Mobile.

T-Mobile has just updated the Samsung Galaxy Tab S2, model number SM-T817T, to Android 6.0.1. The long-awaited update finally brings Marshmallow to this LTE variant of the Galaxy Tab S2, delivering all the well-known new features that this Android release usually comes with.

According to T-Mobile's official support page for this slate, "Beginning July 18, the Samsung Galaxy Tab S2 (T817T) received a software update to Android 6.0.1/Baseband version T817TUVU2BPF1." Unfortunately, the same source only mentions "Android 6.0" in the New features section. However, the new features this major update delivers are well-known: Google Now on Tap, Doze mode, improved app permissions, multi-user mode, Nexus Imprint compatibility for the fingerprint reader, new emojis, updated TouchWiz UI, and more.

The 1022 MB update is delivered via OTA, so those who did not get the notification yet should wait for it or just go to Settings > About device > Software update > Check for updates.

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.
