For those who are hoping for the Marshmallow update for their Samsung devices and are presently on Telus, if you have the latest handset, you might have already seen the roster for the update roll-outs, however, for the older versions, the celebrations seem to be pushed back a little. Telus has updated its upgrade timeline to reflect delayed deadlines on some of Samsung’s top-tier handsets. Namely, the Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge, Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge+ and Samsung Galaxy Note 5.

Instead of getting Android Marshmallow on March 9th, the Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge+ and Note 5 will get it on March 13th. Meanwhile, Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge users will have to wait until March 30th, as opposed to getting the OTA update on the 16th.

The S6 users are also receiving the update, however, the dates are not pushed back, as the update is scheduled for April 13th, so, regardless, you will have to wait longer.

Here is a bit of a refresher on the specs of the S6. It features a 5.1 inches wide display and is powered by an Exynos 7420 Octa processor along with of 3GB of RAM and 32/64/128 GB of internal storage. As for the camera department, it comes with a 16MP rear shooter and a 5MP sensor on the front. The device is supported by a 2,550 mAh battery, which supports fast charging.

The company’s rival, HTC, has also announced the rollout for the HTC One M9, though, the dates are yet to be confirmed. The One M8 is also supposed to get the update on most major U.S. including Verizon.
