Following a series of rumors, roadmaps and betas, Android 6.0 Marshmallow is finally rolling out to the Samsung Galaxy S6 now. Samsung made the announcement on February 15 via its Newsroom. The announcement gave no indication of how long the update will take to completely roll out, and there was no information on where in the world users can expect to see it first, so a little patience might well be required, although you can at least rest assured that Marshmallow is on its way.
On April 1, Verizon announced that it is officially beginning to roll out the Marshmallow update. As usual, the process will be happening in waves, so don't lose patience if you're still waiting to receive it. It will, sometime soon, arrive on your device.

T-Mobile Samsung Galaxy S6 update
T-Mobile was the first major US carrier to begin rolling out the Android 5.1.1 update, bringing devices up to baseband version G925TUVU1AOF6.
Among the improvements noted by T-Mobile is a fix for the 'camera LED flashlight' issue. Whether this is the same Galaxy S6 camera problem we've encountered previously, we aren't entirely sure, but we're inclined to believe it is. You can expect some improvements to the fingerprint scanner, as well as various bug fixes.
One unexpected addition is RAW support for the camera, as discovered by XDA Developers. The 5.1.1 update also brings lower ISO settings.
