Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge update

Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge went on sale in several countries including India today. We unboxed the smartphone today and received the first over-the-air (OTA) update once we switched on the phone and connected it to WiFi. This update adds many stability, performance improvements and new features, says Samsung. Check out the complete changelog below.

New features in Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge OTA update

  • Improved Fingerprint recognition process
  • Added new feature in Photo editor
  • Improved compatibility with accessories
  • Enhanced interface of Email, Music, S planner and other apps

The update is 252.98MB in size. The Android version remains the same as 5.0.2, but the baseband is changed from G925IDVU1AOC1 to G925IDVU1AOD2. The kernel version has also seen a minor change from 3.10.61-4265940 (dated March 2) to 3.10.61-4600331 (dated April 1). The Galaxy S6 might have also received this update. We will let you know once you get our hands on the smartphone. Hope Samsung will roll out Android 5.1 (Lollipop) update for the Galaxy S6 Edge and Galaxy S6 soon.
