Sammobile reports that the Galaxy S6 Edge+ users in India have started receiving OTA update notifications with build number G928GDDU2AOJ5. It is about 140MB in size. There is no word whether the OTA firmware update is rolling out in other markets as well.
The OTA update for the Galaxy S6 Edge+ claims to add improved stability of call, battery usage optimisation, apart from security enhancements. The update notification screenshot shared shows that once updated, the Galaxy S6 Edge+ won't allow users to downgrade due to changes in the security policy.
Considering that both the Galaxy Note 5 and Galaxy S6 Edge+ smartphones sport similar innards; there is no surprise that both the handsets are receiving similar OTA updates.
So far, Samsung has not revealed any plans to update the Galaxy S6 Edge+ alongside other top of the line handsets such as the Galaxy Note 5 to Android 6.0 Marshmallow. However, a previous leak suggested that the smartphones are part of the company's first wave of Marshmallow rollouts.
Samsung India launched the Galaxy S6 Edge+ back in August priced at Rs. 57,900 for the 32GB variant. The Android 5.1 Lollipop-based Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge+ features a 5.7-inch QHD (1440x2560 pixels) Super-Amoled display with a pixel density of 515ppi, and is powered by a 64-bit octa-core Exynos 7420 SoC with four Cortex-A57 cores clocked at 2.1GHz, and four Cortex-A53 cores clocked at 1.5GHz, apart from 4GB of LPDDR4 RAM. The highlight of the handset is its dual-edge screen.
