Late last month, Samsung – which is currently testing the the Marshmallow beta for its Galaxy S6/S6 edge smartphones – surprised everyone by rolling out the Android 6.0.1 update to a Galaxy S5 device. While that was said to have happened accidentally, the update has hit another Galaxy S5 now.

Someone in France, this time, has received the Android 6.0.1 update OTA on their Galaxy S5 phone, which carries a model number of SM-G900F. The screenshots shared by the user reveal that the update includes Android security patch for the month of January.

The fact that the Galaxy S5 is getting the Marshmallow update is interesting given that the handset is from 2014, while the South Korean company’s latest flagships haven’t started getting the final update yet. However, what it does indicate is that aside from the Galaxy S6/S6 egde, Samsung is close to rolling out the Marshmallow update to some of its other devices, too.
