Telus Postpones Galaxy S6 Edge, S6 Edge+ and Galaxy Note 5 Marshmallow Updates: Here’re the New Dates


Samsung Galaxy S6 Marshmallow updates started rolling out at the beginning of February, starting with the home country South Korea.

The new OS further went on to show up on the other Galaxy S6 Edge and S6 Edge+ as well as Galaxy Note 5, but this was only happening in select regions.

While this was happening, Canada’s Telus announced that it will be rolling out the Galaxy Note 5 Marshmallow update on March 9. This was supposed to happen alongside the Galaxy S6 Edge+ while the S6 Edge was scheduled for March 16. However, it seems this software update schedule has been scrapped due to some unknown technical issues.

The new schedule

By scrapping the old schedule, Telus went on to provide new dates as to when this new Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow update will be available for Galaxy S6 Edge, S6 Edge+ and Galaxy Note 5 owners.

It has been revealed that the new Samsung Galaxy Note 5 Marshmallow update release date is set for March 13. As earlier planned, this update will happen on the same date as the phablet Galaxy S6 Edge+. With regards to the Galaxy S6 Edge Marshmallow upgrade, Telus says that users can start checking for this update beginning March 30.


Prior arrangements had pushed the release date of Samsung Galaxy S6 Marshmallow update to April 13. As it seems, there is no change expected as far as this update is concerned.

LG G3 Marshmallow update set for March 16

While this is happening in Samsung’s world, Telus has also promised that those using the older LG G3 will also be receiving the Android 6.0 Marshmallow update on March 16. On the other hand, Motorola’s Moto X Play will start receiving the same update this Wednesday.

As far as Samsung Electronics is concerned, those using Samsung Galaxy Note 5 and the entire range of Galaxy S6 series will start receiving Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow update this March. Next on the list will be Samsung Galaxy Note 4 and Galaxy Note Edge, both of which will receive the update at the beginning of Q2 2016.

2014 flagship – Samsung Galaxy S5 – alongside the Galaxy Tab S2 (both 8 and 9.7-inch models) will receive the update in May 2016 and last on the list of the high-end devices will be the Galaxy Alpha, which will get the Marshmallow update in June this year. As from summer onwards, we still expect to see other mid-range devices such as Galaxy A and Galaxy J series receive this Android 6.0 update.
