Will the GS6 follow the Note 4's example with a metal frame? Perhaps instead go all-metal?

While the Galaxy S6 and S6 Edge have already begun their Lollipop 5.1.1 update process some weeks ago, there has been nothing much to speak of when it came to flagships from the year prior. That’s about to change, at least as far as the Galaxy Note 4 is concerned. A screen capture has appeared that indicates Samsung’s premiere phablet (model SM-N910C) is now in receipt of the latest Android build, at least for those users in Russia:

Unfortunately there is nothing yet known about what exactly this build entails, however it is presumed to include all the relevant bug fixes and whatnot that were contained in the Android 5.1 update. It will be particuarly interesting to see if anything pans out with the rumor of Samsung activating the Exynos 64-Bit CPU that is dormant in some Note 4 models. Given that the build date is listed as June 29th, it would appear the roll-out is either happening in a staggered format, or else it took a bit for someone to notify the source of the story.

Before you begin mashing the “Check for Updates” button, please keep in mind that OEMs often release updates in “test” markets wherein they can monitor the process and keep watch for any problems or bugs that might occur before a widespread roll-out. Such was the case last year, for example, when LG began its deployment of Lollipop in Poland.
