The Galaxy S5 first got the Marshmallow update in South Korea, followed by regions like Trinidad and Tobago, Argentina and others. Now, the most widespread model of the S5 has started getting its Android 6.0 treat, with the update rolling out to the SM-G900F model in Sri Lanka. This is the same model that is available is most parts of Europe and many other regions, and it looks like Marshmallow for the S5 is finally ready to become more widely available.

As usual, there is no set date or timeframe for when your device will get the update. It could be today, or any day in the next week or so. The rollouts are gradual and will slowly spread to more devices and regions as the days go by. If you can’t wait, head into the Settings » About device » Software update menu to see if the update is available for your Galaxy S5.
