We have been hearing for quite a few weeks now that Samsung is going to release the Android 5.1.1 update for the Galaxy S6 and Galaxy S6 Edge at some point in June, well today is that day, though it’s only the lucky day for those who own these devices on T-Mobile. Both handsets are getting the Android 5.1.1 update today on T-Mobile, build G920TUVU1AOF6 and build G925TUVU1AOF6 is being rolled out for the Galaxy S6 and the Galaxy S6 Edge respectively.
T-Mobile is actually the first carrier in the United States to send this update out for these handsets, it goes without saying that other carriers will follow suit very soon.
This much awaited update doesn’t appear to bring some of the features that it was rumored to, such as support for image capture in RAW format and fixes for the RAM issue. It’s actually said that those software additions will be introduced first with the Galaxy S6 Edge Plus.
There is however one completely new feature in this update and that’s Google anti-theft protection feature, which requires that users log into their Google account even after the device has been factory reset.
It also brings the usual slew of bug fixes and performance improvements, so overall users will feel that the device’s performance has become slightly better and the system’s reliability has improved.
