Galaxy Tab S 10.5 LTE now receiving the long-awaited Marshmallow update in Germany

Despite representatives taking to Samsung’s Twitter profile to reveal that it wouldn’t distribute the Android 6.0.1 update for the 8.4- or 10.5-inch first-generation Galaxy Tab S in Europe last week, the South Korean company has today started rolling out the upgrade for the Galaxy Tab S 10.5 LTE (SM-T805) in Germany.

The update itself is a pretty small download, weighing in at a mere 812MB, but don’t let its size fool you as it still packs all of the Marshmallow goodness we’ve grown to love, including greater control over app permissions, enhanced battery-life through Doze and, of course, a redesigned App Drawer.

Alternatively, if it’s not ready for your slate just yet, you can grab a copy of the software package from our firmware database and manually flash it onto your unit.
