This new Android update focuses on the bug fixes, speed optimizations and stability improvements. There is the usual addition of some new Android Marshmallow features including Doze battery management, Google Now on Tap and configurable app permissions. However, there is no mention of the latest TouchWiz interface which has also appeared in other recently launched flagship models of the company.

Samsung also included the March Android Security patch in this update, which will enable this phone to secure from the pesky exploits. The March security update was rolled out in Europe earlier this month. And it’s also rolled out for the recently launched Galaxy S7 and S7 Edge phones a few days ago.

If you own a Samsung S5 with model number SM G900L then you can install the firmware yourself or can also find it via Samsung Kies. While other Galaxy customers will be required to sit back waiting for the Korean giant to start rolling it out for some older flagships.
