Android 6.0 Marshmallow starts rolling out for the Samsung Galaxy Tab S2 9.7

Vlad, 25 April, 2016

The original Samsung Galaxy Tab S2 9.7 from last year is now finally starting to receive its update to Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow, more than half a year after that version of the OS got official (and remember this was Samsung's premium tablet offering in 2015).

Lateness aside, this is a welcome update of course. Currently Marshmallow is rolling out to the T815 iteration of the device, which is the one that has 4G LTE connectivity. The first country to get it is Germany (for units sold unlocked), but it will hopefully become available in more places soon. After applying the update, you'll be on build T815XXU2BPD6.

As every other Marshmallow update out there, this one too will bring you new features such as Now On Tap, Doze Mode, new permissions, new emoji, and improved quick settings toggles. Additionally, you get support for multiple user accounts, so you can easily share the tablet with family members without worries about exposing your private data. The update also includes the April security patch.
