Several months after Samsung released their original variant of the Galaxy S5 in Korea, they followed it up with the Galaxy S5 Broadband LTE-A smartphone. This was the very first handset from the company to boast a QHD Super AMOLED display, and now it has emerged it is getting its upgrade to Marshmallow.

An Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow is being pushed out by Samsung to the Galaxy S5 Broadband LTE-A handset. The update which is rolling out over the air, is now available to all the major carriers in the South Korean regions including LG U+, KT and SK. The update is expected to bump up the software version to a G906KKTU1CPE1XXMB build number.

Google’s Marshmallow OS version is packed with numerous features set to offer users an optimized Android experience. Some major examples include a Doze battery management feature that’s activated while the device is on sleep, configurable app permissions that allow you to limit the access apps have on the files and services on your phone, as well as Google’s Now On Tap which looks up information relevant to whatever is currently on your device’s screen.
