Galaxy S6 Edge+ and Note 5 users on Telus will get Marshmallow on March 13th instead of March 9th, while those using the Galaxy S6 Edge have to wait until March 30th, two weeks later than previously announced.
During the last few months, we heard more than once about Android Marshmallow updates being delayed or going live by mistake, so the recent delays unveiled by Telus are not surprising. On the other hand, the difference in the magnitude of these delays is surprising - from 4 days for the Galaxy S6 Edge+ and Note 5, to no less than two weeks for the Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge.
These are the initial update dates announced by Telus and the new target launch dates (until these updates go live, there is always a small chance for new delays to occur):
These three flagship devices mentioned above will get Android Marshmallow and the latest security updates while Samsung Galaxy S6 will receive the Marshmallow treatment even later - April 13th, if everything goes as planned. However, this date has been announced previously as well, so this is not a delay.

In my early school days, I hated writing and having to make up stories. A decade later, I started to enjoy it. Since then, I published a few offline articles and then I moved to the online space, where I contributed to major websites that are still present online as of 2021 such as Softpedia, Brothersoft, Download3000, but I also wrote for multiple blogs that have disappeared over the years. I've been riding with the Notebookcheck crew since 2013 and I am not planning to leave it anytime soon. In love with good mechanical keyboards, vinyl and tape sound, but also smartphones, streaming services, and digital art.
