Samsung Galaxy S6, S6 Edge Reportedly Receiving Android 5.1.1 Lollipop Update

Samsung Galaxy S6 and Galaxy S6, the flagship handsets that were launched running Android 5.0 Lollipop, have reportedly started receiving the Android 5.1.1 Lollipop update.

As per the latest report, the Android 5.1.1 Lollipop update is being rolled out over the air (OTA) to T-Mobile users in the US, but is also available through the Samsung Kies software. Samsung has not officially announced the roll-out of Android 5.1.1 Lollipop update for the flagships. However, since the latest firmware's rollout has begun in the US, it is safe to expect the update to reach other regions including India soon.

Besides including several bug fixes for the devices, the latest Android 5.1.1 Lollipop update for Galaxy S6 and Galaxy S6 Edge is said to introduce small yet useful features. The update, according to Sammobile, now comes with an easier to use exposure control system for the handset's camera alongside a wallpaper with parallax effect, which we first saw on iPhone devices. Several other user interface changes such as option to remove S Finder and quick connect buttons from the notifications section, have also been included in the latest OS version. The overall performance of the smartphones is said to have improved as well.

Android 5.1.1 Lollipop was earlier this month rolled out to Android One smartphones in India. Android 5.1.1 is also anticipated to bring a fix for the memory leak issue, a bug that plagued Android 5.0 Lollipop users and even haunted some users on Android 5.1 Lollipop.

Meanwhile Samsung on Monday introduced the Emerald Green colour variant of the Galaxy S6 Edge in India. The smartphone until now was only present in White Pearl, Black Sapphire and Gold Platinum colour variants. The new colour variant will be available in 32GB inbuilt storage version only.
