Samsung Netherlands: No Marshmallow for the Samsung Galaxy Tab S slates
During the Summer of last year, both versions of the tablet were updated to Android 5.0.2; at that point, it seemed inevitable that the tablets would receive the update to Android 6.0 Marshmallow. In fact, earlier this year benchmark tests of the tablets surfaced with Android 6.0.1 running the show. Rumors had the update taking place in the current quarter.
But the Facebook page belonging to Samsung Netherlands revealed some rather dour information on Saturday. According to the site, the Samsung Galaxy Tab S 8.4 and Samsung Galaxy Tab S 10.5 will not be receiving Android 6.0 after all. This might be a bummer for those who own a Galaxy Tab S slate. But even if the Android roller coaster for these tablets ends at Lollipop instead of Marshmallow, the Galaxy Tab S models remain quite serviceable devices.
