Android 6.0 for these two flagships on T-Mobile is currently in the certification stage and might soon roll out to end users, but its date of arrival is not official yet.

Samsung unleashed the Galaxy S6 and Galaxy S6 Edge less than a year ago when both reached the first batch of customers loaded with Android 5.0 Lollipop. Now, since the official Marshmallow update has been released, major carriers in the US are starting to update these flagships on their networks as well. Although T-Mobile will not be the first one to do it, it will soon release Marshmallow to these two Samsung Galaxy S6 handsets.

According to the official software support page on T-Mobile's website, the Android Marshmallow update for the Galaxy S6 and the Galaxy S6 Edge has left the Manufacturer Development stage behind and the carrier is now testing it. Once the certification process is complete, T-Mobile has to approve the launch and finally roll out the update to end users. The update will bring the usual Marshmallow goodies, such as Google Now on Tap, Doze mode, new emojis, as well as multiple minor fixes and tweaks.

Unfortunately, the whole process might take more than a month and there is no official launch date available yet, but we will keep you posted.

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.
