Telus delays a few Android Marshmallow updates

Official Telus Android firmware updates schedule
Telus Android updates schedule
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):

  • Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge+, Galaxy Note 5 - March 9/March 13
  • Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge - March 16/March 30

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.

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.
