Samsung has started pushing down the Marshmallow update for Galaxy Tab A tablets. We’re seeing both the 8.0″ Tab A and 9.7″ Tab A receive the update, but while it’s the 3G/LTE version of Tab A 8.0″ (SM-T355) that’s getting Marshmallow update, it’s the WiFi only version for Tab A 9.7″. The coveted Android 6.0 update carries the build no. of T355XXU1BPE2 for Tab A 8.0, while for Tab A 9.7, it’s T550XXU1BPE1. The exact version is Android 6.0.1, btw.
Samsung is already in the process of sending the OTA notification for the Marshmallow update on the above tablets, but that is a gradual process that takes some time.
