    T-Mobile is now in the midst of rolling out the long-awaited Android 6.0.1 update for its carrier-branded variant of the Galaxy A3 (2016) in the Netherlands. The upgrade — firmware version XXU2BPI3 — weighs in at approximately 2GB and bundles all of the standard features you'd expect to find baked into Marshmallow, in addition to the patches included in September's Security Maintenance Release (SMR).

    The full changelog can be seen below:

    • Android 6.0.1 (Marshmallow)
    • Exercise greater control over app permissions
    • Experience enhanced battery-life through Doze
    • Redesigned App Drawer
    • Bug fixes
    • Stability improvements
    • September security patch

    If you own a Galaxy A3 (2016) locked to T-Mobile in the Netherlands and would like to see if the Marshmallow update is ready for your handset, simply head into Settings » About Device » Software Update » Update Now. Alternatively, you could always wait until you receive a push notification prompting you to install the upgrade. It's worth noting, however, that you'll need at least 50% of battery for an alert to be displayed on your handset.
