Samsung’s user manual confirms that the original Galaxy Tab S will get Marshmallow

There has been a lot of speculation recently about the release of Marshmallow for the original Galaxy Tab S. Just a few days ago, Samsung Netherlands said that the company will not release Marshmallow for the Galaxy Tab S while Samsung Greece contradicted that today by saying that the tablet will indeed get Android 6.0. We’ve seen in the past as well that customer support reps on Twitter are not sure about Samsung’s update plans and this causes unnecessary concern among users.

We have found a user manual on Samsung’s website which confirms that the Marshmallow update is in the pipeline for the first-generation Galaxy Tab S and that it’s only a matter of time before this update is finally sent out to users who have certainly been waiting for a long time to get upgraded to Android 6.0. If you’ve been waiting for this update it would be best to tune out all the noise and rest assured that Marshmallow will be released for the original Galaxy Tab S in due time.

this is what happens when you have too many devices in your product catalogue.

Regardless, Samsung is a huge company with vast resources, and they really should be updating their products (not only flagship, but all) with greater frequency.

I’m hoping my SM-T805k gets the Marshmallow update soon, but the general contempt that Samsung has for it’s existing user base vs. its rush to get new customers with new products (only to stop supporting those new customers no less than 18 months later) means I’m not holding my breath.

An official announcement rather than conflicting reports from various sources (from the same ****ing company) would go some way to restoring an order of professionalism that one should expect from a multi national corporation such as Samsung.

Good luck with that. It took Samsung many months to release Marshmallow on the Korean Galaxy Tab S2, and that was sold factory unlocked no less. You’re now asking for it to release an update for a *carrier* locked Korean tablet? If it’s not a flagship phone, it’s pretty safe to say you’re going to be waiting a long time, if you get it at all.

oh yes, I completely agree with you, hence me stating that I’m not holding my breath.

I was merely venting, and hey, if someone is in the market for a new tablet, cares about future software updates for their device, and happens upon this thread, then maybe they’ll be discouraged from buying into Samsung’s woefully supported range of tablets – that’s the best that might come of it.

If only Samsung could divert their funds from investment into Tizen (which will ultimately fail) to existing product software support. However, much like my hope for an update to a version of Android (that has already been superseded) for my Tab S, I’m aware that its wishful thinking.

That’s great news, hopefully we won’t have to wait to long to get the update. ….

I do not care anymore, device has never worked well with the Samsung software. The first and also the last tablet containing the shell of manufacturer over it.

The manual is for T805, there isn’t any marshmallow manual in the T800 page. Perhaps the difference between the customer support opinion it’s between T800 and t805. The first with Exynos processor and the second with snapdragon processor. Perhaps the T805 can receive update and T800 cannot. It’s possible analyze this theory?

The SM-T805 also uses the Exynos 7420.

Ok, but it’s rather “strange” that there isn’t a Marshmallow manual in T800 pages in all samsung websites. We hope it’s only matter of different time of publication.

Is it assumed only the wifi versions will receive this update?
