No Samsung phones. What a joke.

The question is, have other carriers already pushed the Android M update to Samsung phones? That would tell us whether this is truly a manufacturer's delay as Telus would have us believe, or a Telus delay...

@RKinMTL @ogre It doesn't look like Bell and Rogers have posted their update times for the Galaxy lines either...

Hoping the M8 update will still be on schedule for this thursday!

What is the validity of that document posted above by @THE61X?

 

It's dated 29 October 2015, which makes me doubt it's applicable to this thread about Telus in Canada...?

So will the HTC One m9 actually be getting the marshmallow update tomorrow? Or will we all just be getting excited for nothing again? Please respond and let us know if the update will still be rolling out tomorrow. Also, is it 6.0 or 6.0.1?

Great news everyone! Update for HTC M8, and M9 will be released tomorrow. It will roll out gradually for all our customers. 

 

We will follow up later with the build number.

Thank you for your fast response I appreciate it. Will the update start rolling out at midnight tonight or is there a certain time the gradual roll out will start?

Moto X Play has not seen Android M update yet even though the update came out in December 2015.

 

Does the TELUS system only give the update once per SIM card?

 

Original Moto X Play got update in December 2015, then had warranty issue.

 

Replacement Moto X Play with same SIM card has still not gotten the Android M update.

@Plaq it looks live it's only Android 6.0 for my m8 at least, but I will confirm that once I have the update installed

@dustinjkeller Just got the update myself (downloading now), the build number was there and I thought it said 6.0, but don't quote me on it! Smiley Very Happy

@Claystation3 if it is only the 6.0 I hope they update to 6.0.1 soon. I want a couple of the added features that they put in to it, like the added 200+ emojis so I can see all of them from an iPhone user. I didn't pay attention really when the prompt came up to update, I was too excited to read it and just pressed install haha.

Samsung officially rolling out Marshmellow 6.0.1 to Galaxy S6 Devices.

Can anyone substantiate what @THE61X wrote above? My GS6 has yet to get the update (and, as an aside, it would be pretty laughable if the Android M update came to our devices before Telus even had the courtesy to update us on this forum).

Samsung said it depends on the carrier and location, as to when we receive it.

It will also be distributed in waves so it doesn't overwhelm their servers. Some users may get the update before others but if it is actually out, it likely won't be long.

Aside from the physical difference with the Galaxy series of phones, what is really the difference between them? Why would the S6 have a target launch date that is almost 1 month behind that of the S6 Edge?

The latest release schedule from Telus shows that for the S6 Edge the target launch date is March 16. If you are a S6 user (like myself) the target launch date shows April 13. It would be nice if they were both released the same day, but there must be enough of a difference in the OS itself to delay the S6 an extra month.

The target launch dates for the Galaxy series of phones has arrived!

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

Yes, there is enough of a difference in the S6 and S6edge, that Bell is rolling out Wi-Fi calling on the S6 to their market place, but not yet on the S6edge.

This may be a dumb question,  is wifi calling available currently through Telus for the S6 or Edge?
