Samsung has reportedly rolled out Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow update to two of its devices -- the Galaxy S6 and the Galaxy S6 edge -- in South Korea.

A report by SamMobile has claimed that Samsung Galaxy S6 with model number SM-G920S and the Galaxy S6 edge SM-G925S model have received the Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow update in South Korea. It went on to say that the Galaxy S6 edge+ and the Galaxy Note 5 devices may get the firmware update in the country soon. 

The firmware update was expected soon, as it's been a while since Samsung released Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow beta to the Galaxy S6 and the Galaxy S6 edge devices. So, it was just a matter of time before the firmware was made public.
