Samsung begins rolling out Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow to Galaxy S5

Over four months after Android 6.0 Marshmallow was released, Samsung finally began upgrading its devices in February, starting with its Galaxy S6 and S6 edge, along with the Galaxy Note 5 in some markets.

Now, Marshmallow is starting to trickle down to some of Samsung's older devices too. As SamMobile reports, the company has begun upgrading the Galaxy S5, its 2014 flagship phone, with Android 6.0.1.

So far, the update is available only in South Korea, specifically for model number SM-G900L on the LG Uplus network. But now that the rollout has begun for that version of the device, it should soon make its way to other variants of the Galaxy S5 in other markets too.

Meanwhile, Google has already rolled out its first Developer Preview of the next version of the OS, known as Android N, which will be released later this year - although given the notoriously slow pace at which Samsung updates its devices, it's probably best not to expect its arrival on older Galaxys anytime soon.
