Samsung Galaxy Grand Prime Android 6.0 Marshmallow update

The Samsung Galaxy Grand Prime received Android 5.1.1 Lollipop in September 2015, almost a year after it was first released. Only the G830P and G830W models got the update, however, the G530F and G530BP are still waiting.

Though the Galaxy Grand Prime is only a year old, as one of Samsung’s cheaper, mid-range handsets, there’s a chance it won’t receive an official Android Marshmallow update, although the emergence of a custom ROM is likely. An article from Venture Capital Post speculates that it get an update from Samsung, but this is unconfirmed. 

We'll keep you up to date on the status of the Galaxy Grand Prime Marshmallow update, but for now we're waiting on an official announcement from Samsung. 

Do you think that the Marshmallow update will come to the Galaxy Grand Prime? Let us know in the comments.

    Please update the new version 6.0 marshmellow for samsung galaxy grandprime

    Man please let us get the update. This is a new phone too. If the older generations like the Note 4 are allowed to have it, then this one should. Just because it is a cheaper phone doesn't mean that we shouldn't get the update. This is a fantastic phone honestly. I like it better than my old S5. Please let us have the update.

    I have a ST Grand Prime I cannot for the life of me get it to update. It have only 5.0.2. Has it updated from that yet? Whenever I go to update it I get this message. (Service Unavailable.)

    Curiosity killed the cat .... In the past, has there been a typical wait time between Google's release of a new os, and Samsung's distribution of it?
    Thanks everyone
    Happy New Year!!

    I keep getting an error that says my phone is "Not Registered on Network" and I have done the suggestions of pulling the battery and resetting the phone but it still comes back.
