  • In what seems to be a bit of bad news today, we finally have a clear idea of the strategy Samsung has regarding the Marshmallow updates for some of its devices. We’re talking about the Samsung Galaxy Tab S models, the first gen ones, that have just been confirmed to NOT get the Android Marshmallow update.


    The products came only two years ago and were very well received, on account of very slim waistlines and solid specs. The Exynos 5420 CPU remains strong even today and we also got 8.4 inch and 10.5 inch screens with high resolutions. Back then, in 2014, the products came with Android 4.4.2 preinstalled, then they updated to Lollipop and it seems that they’re going to stick with it.

    During last summer, both models got updated to Android 5.0.2 and Marshmallow seemed like a possibility. Even some leaked benchmarks that surfaced this year showed the devices running on Android 6.0.1. Everything gets thrown out of the window today, as Samsung Netherlands confirmed on its Facebook page that we won’t be seeing Marshmallow on the Samsung Galaxy Tab S 8.4 and Samsung Galaxy Tab S 10.5.

    All I can say is thank God for custom ROMs…
