Less than a month ago, Verizon Wireless finally updated the Galaxy Tab S2 tablets on its network to Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow. Now, the time has come for the unlocked WiFi variants of this slate located in the US to get the same treatment.

The update has roughly 1.1 GB in size and carries the firmware version number T710XXU2CDPD. The usual Android 6.0.1 goodies are all here - Google Now on Tap, new emojis, granular app permissions, Doze mode, multiple tweaks and fixes, as well as the latest security updates. In addition to these, the new firmware also offers the option to add images in S Memo.

The new firmware comes via OTA, so those who did not get the update notification yet can start the process manually by going to Settings > About Device > Software Update > Update Now. As usually in such situations, a solid WiFi connection and a fully charged battery are needed to ensure everything goes smoothly.

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.
