Hey, it’s 2014 again! Remember that? Those were fun times with the Galaxy S5 and the Galaxy S5 Active — or, if you’re on Sprint, the Galaxy S5 Sport. Also, it’s always fun to be able to pull up our old S Health review every once in a while. That was a fun bit we did.
Anyways, to the news that Sprint has pulled off the Android Marshmallow update for both of the above Samsung phones. We know for sure that the Galaxy S5 has an update as one user has posted some screencaps to Android Police.
Both product pages on Sprint’s site have been changed to reflect an update with today’s date on it. The devices will be up to speed with Android 6.0.1 and the April 2 security patch. For freaks’ sake, the fingerprint sensor finally requires a backup password entry when registering a print. Also, there’s no decryption option anymore. That’s all history. The update comes up to about 900MB, so, those of you with the smaller data buckets, take heed. OTA waves will be moving through until May 19.
T-Mobile states that its Android Marshmallow update for the Galaxy S5 is in testing. On quick inspection, we haven’t been able to find first-party pages regarding AT&T’s and Verizon’s two-year-old phones.
