Last week, a performance improving update began making its way out to Samsung Galaxy S6 and S6 Edge owners in Europe, addressing an issue with memory management. Samsung UK also announced that more “micro-updates” are in the works, and it seems that another one is now on the way.
A new update with the build number XXU1AOE3 (the previous version was XXU1AODG) has appeared, with a more detailed change-log this time. The 159MB update aims to improve the fingerprint scanner’s recognition process, implements a new unnamed feature in the Photo Editor, tweaks the interface in a few of Samsung’s own apps, and also improves compatibility with a number of accessories. Oddly, there’s no mention of directly addresses the memory management issue that some users are experiencing, but this version does boast general performance improvements.
Last week’s update seems to have only had a limited roll-out, leaving us to wonder if Samsung plans to bring the memory issue update to other users. It seems that the previous update was just for one or two select carriers in the UK and this latest update is intended for a general roll-out.
Version XXU1AOE3 is landing in Asia and Europe as we speak, so be sure to click that Software Update button in the settings to see if it has arrived for you yet. Let us know if you notice any improvements.
