Deja Vu: Another unlocked Samsung Galaxy S5 unit accidentally receives update to Android 6.0.1

Deja Vu: Another unlocked Samsung Galaxy S5 unit accidentally receives update to Android 6.0.1
Last month, we told you about a lucky Samsung Galaxy S5 owner who accidentally received Android 6.0.1 on his phone. History, as they say, repeats itself. Another Samsung Galaxy S5 user, this time in France, hit the jackpot when his phone was accidentally updated to Android 6.0.1 this past weekend. To make it clear, these two units are both unlocked.

Android 6.0.1 is expected to hit unlocked Galaxy S5 models in April. The update includes Doze, a feature that increases the standby time (and battery life)  on an Android handset by putting the phone into a deep sleep state. App permissions are changed with Android users able to accept or deny permissions on a feature-by-feature basis. And Google Now On Tap returns search results based on the content found on the device's screen.

You can check out some screenshots from the updated Galaxy S5 by clicking on the slideshow below. And if you are the proud owner of an unlocked Galaxy S5, you can feel secure in your knowledge that each day will bring you closer to the update expected to take place in April. As for those with a carrier-branded version of the phone, we feel your pain.
