Samsung isn’t the fastest or most transparent OEM out there when it comes to delivering or previewing updates, but the tides seem to be changing just a tad. The company has put out a call to arms for any Korean Samsung Galaxy S6 or S6 Edge users who are interested in testing Android 6.0 Lollipop.

Samsung’s goal with the test is to see how users get along with the upgrade in real world usage, which should hopefully translate to a good user experience and cut down on any initial bugs that might spawn. We’re not sure exactly how much feedback they’re asking for or which types of changes they’re open to making, but any transparency is better than no transparency.

Users with the aforementioned phones on Korean carriers KT and LG U+ can sign up with an app, and if selected they’ll be included in a test period that ends January 18th. This also means that it’s likely wishful thinking to expect the upgrade at any point before late January, but at least we know it won’t take too long in the New Year for Samsung to begin their rollout.
