Starting with home-country South Korea, the Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow update has been rolled out to several Galaxy S6 series of handsets and Galaxy Note 5 in selected regions, across the globe.
Canada’s Telus, on the other hand, recently published the Marshmallow update schedule for carrier-branded version of a slew of devices from various Android OEMs. Going by the list, the roll out date of Galaxy S6 Edge+ and Galaxy Note 5 was mentioned earlier as March 9, whereas the Galaxy S6 Edge was supposed to receive the update starting March 16, GSM Arena reported. However, due to some technical issues, the update has reportedly been postponed.
The new roll out date of the Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow update for Galaxy S6 Edge+ and Galaxy Note 5 is March 13. Speaking of the Galaxy S6 Edge smartphone, Telus will now send out the over-the-air (OTA) update on March 30. In any case, the carrier will reportedly roll out the Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow update for the flagship Galaxy S6 on Apr. 13, as confirmed earlier.
Other than the Galaxy S6 and Note lineup, Telus will apparently send out the Android 6.0 update for the LG G3 and Moto X Play on March 16 and March 9, respectively.
It’s worth reminding that Samsung’s Android 6.0 Marshmallow roadmap got leaked last week. Even though the roadmap does not give the exact dates, it gives the general idea of when to expect the software.
