More and more Marshmallow update news keeps rolling out for users with Samsung devices.This time round, the OEM has begun its Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow update release to the unlocked versions of the Samsung Galaxy S5 with a SM-G900L model number. The Android update is rolling out to the Galaxy S5 which runs on the LG Uplus network in South Korea.This new update comes with a couple of bug fixes, improvements on stability, along with speed optimizations. Of course, it also brings the usual variety of new Marshmallow features such as configurable app permission controls, Google Now on Tap and the Doze battery saving feature. Surprisingly, the latest TouchWiz interface which has been integrated in Samsung's much newer flagships running on Marshmallow, hasn't been mentioned as part of the update. So perhaps this is less of an aesthetic update and more about functionality.Also bundled in the update is the March Android security update from Google, to keep the phone's security up to date and exploits at bay. If you are an owner of the Galaxy S5 with the SM-G900L model number, then you can manually flash the firmware or try to browse through Kies. As for other Galaxy S5 users, be patient as Samsung has already started rolling out Marshmallow to some of its older devices.
