The update brings the smartphone to Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow, and it is being pushed out in Samsung's home country South Korea.

According to a SamMobile report, the three major network operators in South Korea are pushing out the Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow update for the Samsung Galaxy S5 LTE-A.
New software updates are usually pushed out in phases and therefore could take some time before it makes its way to all the Galaxy S5 LTE-A users in South Korea.
