Global Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow roll-out for Galaxy S5 appears to be underway
As is typically the case with Samsung updates, the release of Android 6 Marshmallow for the Galaxy S5 began earlier this week in the firm's native South Korea. Though the 2014 flagship is an old timer in smartphone terms, it's still very much capable of running Google's most recent firmware. Owners of the S5 (SM-G900L) in Trinidad and Tobago are currently being pushed update G900MUBU1CPC3, which brings the device right up to the very latest Android 6.0.1.

There's been plenty of update activity from the Samsung camp this past week or so. Sprint pushed Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow to the Galaxy Note 4 and Note 5 before Android 6.0 Marshmallow made its way to Galaxy S6 edge+ devices the world over. There's no word on when Galaxy S5 owners in numerous other locations will see some of Android 6.0.1. Having taken little time to make the jump from Korea, though, it's reasonable to suggest that further markets will be added in the very near future.

Since this 6.0.1 update drags users all the way from Lollipop, it's quite a sizeable OTA. The 1.47 GB file includes all of Marshmallow's marquee features like Doze and Google Now on Tap, as well as the 200+ new emoji and March Android security patch offered by the latest bump to Google's mobile OS.

Have you managed to install Android 6.0.1 on your Samsung Galaxy S5 as yet? Let us know how you're finding the update and new features by dropping a comment below.
