Android 6.0 Marshmallow is finally available for the Galaxy Note 5 and S6 edge+ on AT&T

Samsung unveiled the Galaxy Note 5 and Galaxy S6 edge+ last August with Android 5.1 Lollipop onboard, just a few weeks before Android 6.0 Marshmallow began rolling out. US carriers started upgrading both of those devices in March.

Three months later, AT&T has finally released the Marshmallow update for the two high-end handsets, making it the last major carrier to do so in the United States.

As SamMobile reports, Android 6.0.1 is now making its way to the Galaxy Note 5 and Galaxy S6 edge on AT&T. The updates for each device weigh in at around 1.6GB, and include the latest security patches, which were published at the beginning of this month.

Along with the usual Marshmallow goodies, the update also includes Samsung's own additions, such as its TouchWiz interface, better notifications support, and other improvements. As always, bear in mind that over-the-air rollouts usually proceed in stages, so it may take a little while before all eligible handsets are able to install the update.

AT&T has earned itself a poor reputation when it comes to delivering timely Android updates. Last month - following weeks of complaints from customers on its support forums - the company upgraded its Galaxy S6 and S6 edge to Marshmallow, three months after the rollout began elsewhere.
