Just because Samsung launched the Galaxy S7 earlier this 2016, it doesn’t mean the tech giant has completely forgotten the older models like the Galaxy S5. In fact, the company has been busy lately rolling out Marshmallow updates. The most recent we saw were for the T-Mobile Galaxy S5, Samsung Galaxy Tab A and S5 LTE-A in South Korea and Trinidad & Tobago, and Galaxy S5 Plus. This time, its the Verizon Galaxy S5’s turn to be in the limelight.
Verizon is busy with the numerous SOFTware updates. They will be released in batches to ensure that every version is ready and without many kinks. Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow is now available for the following smartphone models: HTC One M8, HTC One M9, LG V10, LG G4, LG G3, LG G Pad 8.3, Droid Turbo 2, Droid Maxx 2, Samsung Galaxy S6, Samsung Galaxy S6 edge, Samsung Galaxy Note 5, Samsung Galaxy S6 edge +, and Samsung Galaxy S5.
