The update schedule is posted  here and updated regularly (so don't be fooled by the original post date).


Nothing for the S6 listed for January.

Last I saw online is that Samsung plans to have 6.0 out in the first quarter of this year depending on the device and if they are operating like usual, they will be behind schedule.

It is probably a longer wait than we all had hoped for, but it will be here soon.

Hi @A_Kron & @RhoLee,  I'm a owner of a Samsung Galaxy S6 and very disappointed on seeing the dates provide below by Telus for the Samsung Galaxy S6.  I don't understand why the update for Android M will be released for S6 a month after the S6 Edge.  Wow!!  Can someone explain to me the logic behind this delay on a phone (S6) that has less software enhancements on this update than the S6 edge?

Looked through the software update release Nexus was the only one listed security update solely indicating it would be the lastest Andriod security update for the month.  All others were included with version update which would mean the security update is from previous months leaving the phone vulnerable to new security hacks.  It appears the Nexus phones are the only Android phones getting the security updates in a timely manner to protect us from malicious incursions, hacks and the government spying on us.   Time to abandon Samsung, LG and other OEM's who fail to get security updates to phone owners so we are protected.  Thought Microsoft was slow and did not care these OEM's are far worse.

@cryptodon - That's because the Nexus devices get the updates from Google. They are running stock Android. Companies like Samsung heavily customize their version of Android and because of all the code changes they do, updates have to be tested to ensure they don't mess up the existing coding (Samsung pulled a previous update because of this) before releasing it to the public.

@kirovnet I was about to say the same thing. I understand it takes time to do a release.  And Telus is usually one of the last, but that's because the testing is intense.  And I honestly have RARELY had an issue with an update unlike other providers that have released early and had massive issues.

BUT....How on EARTH is the S6 Edge getting Android M less than a MONTH before the S6?  This is completely backwards!  The S6 is the Flagship!  Very upsetting.  Waiting this long and then seeing this!

I really hope that date for the S6 is bumped up to an earlier release to at least Match the Edge

Lol ... the Note 5 is more of a flagship than the S6.  This will soon be replaced with the S7.  I feel for you getting the update next month, but I can't complain.  I own a Note 5.

My guess is Samsung released the two updates at different times, and Telus is putting them 'in the pipe' in the order received.

 Why is the Galaxy S5 not listed?

The S5 is older and probably won't get Android M until June if you're lucky!

Any idea if/when the Note 4 will get the update to M?

I believe it was announced by Samsung but there was no date related to Canada yet.

LG G3 has been removed from the list...

yeah, what happened to the g3!!!! have been looking forward to it

I am also wondering why the G3 is now missing.  The G2 was given the shaft by Canadian carriers on the Lollipop update that the rest of the world had... and this was after Canadian carriers said that it was on the way.  Now that the rest of the world has Marshmallow on their G3's, are we going to see the same shaft from Canadian carriers for our G3's??

It's ridiculous to see the G3 has been taken off the list altogether now.

This is another reason why I wish we would open internet/cell phone services to international competition.  Canadians get shafted on every single front.

Can we perhaps get a response from Telus regarding the removal of the G3?
