The Galaxy S6 Edge is one of the best Android phones we've ever had the pleasure of using. As such, it gets a lot of attention: in the street, in the market place and also in the developer departments of Samsung. The same is true of the carriers that stock it. This is why it looks like the Galaxy S6 Edge Android 5.1.1 update just made it to T-Mobile customers before even the Nexus 6 has it. Here's what we know about the Galaxy S6 Edge update.
The Galaxy S6 Edge fortunately shipped with silent mode out of the box, but another feature that didn't make the cut was Guest Mode. Fortunately, the Android 5.1.1 Lollipop update has delivered that feature to the Galaxy S6 Edge. A developer by the name of Eduardo Mera (Sunderwear) on XDA Developers posted the following video and image that seems to show a build of Android 5.1.1 compiled on April 28. We can't confirm it is legitimate, but if so, it means the T-Mobile Galaxy S6 Edge got 5.1.1 before even the T-Mobile Nexus 6.
T-Mobile Galaxy S6 Edge Android update
So far it looks as though it is only the T-Mobile Galaxy S6 Edge that has received Android 5.1.1 Lollipop. We'll keep our ears peeled for other carriers updates, but we're not expecting anyone else to deliver quite this quickly. Still, as the video above seems to prove, the 5.1.1 build is legit. Stay tuned for more.
