The Galaxy S7 and S7 Edge are arguably today’s best Android smartphones in the world, offering water resistance, microSD expansion and an incontestable fully premium build. But if you own one of last year’s “big things” and don’t want to upgrade so soon, you should rejoice upon hearing Marshmallow is on its way.

Not just internationally and on Sprint stateside, as Verizon has detailed installation instructions and changelogs posted on its support website for both the Galaxy S6 and S6 Edge. The two over-the-air rollouts were supposed to kick off as early as Friday, April 1, though you’re advised to remain patient if movement is slow.

It sometimes takes time for these goodie packs to go nationwide, tipping the scales at 1GB+ each and progressing in gradual waves to avoid problems. Hopefully, you won’t receive too much carrier-specific bloat that often badly hurts the stability of smooth stock Android operations.

What you’ll be definitely getting is the go90 video streaming app, improved Wi-Fi Calling functions, a revised Notification panel, as well as Doze power-saving features, Google Now on Tap cards, and interactive, easily adjustable permissions.

The standard Galaxy S6 is still sold through Big Red’s website for $576 full retail or $24 a month, while the GS6 Edge is bizarrely listed as “no longer available” on verizonwireless.com. Looming EOL already?
