Samsung releases Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow update for the Galaxy S5 Plus

The Galaxy S5 Plus is a variant of Samsung's 2014 flagship that's been largely forgotten by many - but it once laid claim to the title of "the world's fastest Android smartphone", thanks to its Snapdragon 805 processor.

Samsung began upgrading the standard Galaxy S5 to the latest version of Android in March, and now it's the Plus model's turn.

The S5 Plus was upgraded to Android 5.0.2 Lollipop a year ago, but at long last, it's finally being upgraded to Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow, bringing its software build number up to G901FXXU1CPE1. Along with the usual Marshmallow goodies, owners of the device can look forward to Samsung's own additions, including its familiar TouchWiz interface.

The update is currently available in Germany but a wider over-the-air rollout should begin in the days and weeks ahead.
