Galaxy Tab S 8.4 now receiving the Marshmallow OTA in the Netherlands

Samsung’s on a roll in the Netherlands today. A little over an hour ago, it started distributing the long-awaited Marshmallow update for the first-generation Galaxy J5, and now it’s rolling out an identical update for the 8.4-inch Wi-Fi model of the Galaxy Tab S (SM-T700) in the region.

The upgrade, which weighs in at approximately 800 MB and carries the firmware version XXU1CPI1, transports all of the latest and greatest features packed into Android 6.0.1, in addition to the security fixes included in the maintenance patch dated Thursday, September 1.

If you own a Galaxy Tab S 8.4, you’re probably feeling as a little confused right now as a little over a month ago a Samsung representative revealed that the tablet wouldn’t receive the firmware in Europe. Since then, it has made its way to Germany and it’s now available in the Netherlands.

To see if the OTA upgrade is ready for your slate, head into Settings » About Device » Software Update » Update Now. Alternatively, if you don’t feel like manually scanning for the update, you can always wait until you receive a push notification prompting you to download and install it.
