Telus, a wireless and internet service provider in Canada, has started rolling out Android 6.0 Marshmallow update to its variants of Samsung Galaxy flagship devices after months of waiting. It has now announced the firmware update schedule for its model of the Samsung Galaxy S5, Tab S2 and Galaxy Note 4.
The carrier (via GSM Arena) has announced that its variant of Samsung Galaxy S5 and Tab S2 will start getting the Android Marshmallow update along with security patch from May 2, while the Galaxy Note 4 is scheduled to get the update on May 16. There is no mention whether the handsets will get the Android 6.0 or the Android 6.0.1 version, but it is very likely to be the latter.
Telus released Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow update to Samsung Galaxy S6 and Galaxy S6 edge a few days ago. It may start seeding the firmware to other eligible devices soon.
The Android Marshmallow update comes with several features like Doze mode, Google Now on Tap, Direct share, controlled notifications and redesigned app permissions.
Ideally, Android 6.0 Marshmallow download notification should appear on your phone screen when it is rolled out via OTA (over-the-air). It can be installed by following instructions provided on the screen.
The availability of the new software can also be checked manually by going to â€“ 'Settings' >> 'About phone' >> 'System updates' >> 'Check For Update'.
