Sprint starts rolling out Marshmallow update for the Galaxy S5 Sport and Galaxy Note Edge

Following a successful rollout for the Galaxy S6 edge+ and Galaxy Note 4 last month, Sprint has today started distributing the long-awaited Marshmallow update to all its carrier-branded variants of the Galaxy S5 Sport and Galaxy Note Edge located in the United States.

As you’d expect, the upgrade transports the latest build of Android 6.0.1 to the handsets, together with the contents of this month’s security patch, which is great news for those who’ve been complaining that their devices have been left out of Samsung’s monthly maintenance releases.

It’s important to bear in mind, however, that due to the sheer size of the update, Sprint is unable to push the OTA to all units at once — so it has no other option than to roll it out in stages. The operator hopes to have the firmware available to download on all its models of the Galaxy Note Edge by May 2 and Galaxy S5 Sport by May 11.

To see if the upgrade is ready for your phone, simply head into Settings, followed by About Device, locate and select Software Update, then hit the Update Now button.
