Android 5.1.1 Lollipop making its way to international Galaxy S6 and S6 Edge variants
We’ve already seen the update to Android 5.1.1 Lollipop roll out to the T-Mobile Galaxy S6 and S6 Edge, and now it’s looking like a few other variants are beginning to receive the update. According to French technology website Planete Galaxy, the update to Android 5.1.1 has started rolling out to the Galaxy S6 (SM-G920F) in France.
Android 5.1.1 comes in at around 623MB, which isn’t surprising considering that the update contains mostly bug fixes and performance improvements. While the changelog doesn’t list all of the changes specifically, users will now be able to remove both the S Finder and Quick Connect buttons from the notification shade after the update. To do so, simply pull down the notification shade, tap on the “Edit” button, uncheck the S Finder and Quick Connect options at the bottom, then click “Done”. Additionally, users can now rearrange apps in the app drawer alphabetically, which was oddly missing from the Galaxy S6.
Galaxy S6 owners in France aren’t the only ones that have access to the update, though. According to SamMobile, the update to Android 5.1.1 is now available through Kies for the international Galaxy S6 Edge (SM-G925F). Although an official OTA hasn’t been spotted yet, we can expect it to begin hitting devices sometime very soon.
If you’d like to check for the update manually, head to Settings>About device>Software updates>Check now. If you happen receive the update on either of these devices, be sure to let us know in the comments below!
