Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge Plus Hands On-22

Samsung has begun rolling out its first update for its Galaxy S6 Edge+ handset this week, which brings a small selection of improvements to Samsung’s latest flagship. The unlocked version of the Galaxy Note 5, which features mostly identical hardware to the S6 Edge+, received a similar upgrade last week.

The update comes with the build number G928GDDU2A0J5 and weighs in at 138.14MB, so it’s a reasonably sized update. The patch notes state that the Galaxy S6 Edge+ should see improved battery life after the update, not that the handset was too bad in this regard anyway. The stability of calls has now been improved and there are some unspecified adjustments to device security too.

Samsung states that these security tweaks are the reason why customers won’t be able to downgrade to a previous software version after the update, as is also the case with the Note 5’s latest patch. Sadly, there’s no Android 6.0 Marshmallow update for Samsung’s flagships just yet. That upgrade is expected to arrive sometime in early 2016.

The update should be rolling out to handsets in various regions over the coming days and weeks. As usual, carrier branded models will have to wait a little longer. Have you spotted the update yet?
