The Galaxy S6 Edge is finally receiving the Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow update. It'll be initially available in beta, meaning you can try it out now rather than waiting for the stable release. Here's everything you need to know about the Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge Android update.
Owners of the Galaxy S6 Edge can now get their hands on the Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow update, but in beta for now. This should come as a welcome release as users are used to getting relatively slow updates from Samsung. If you want to try the beta now, head over to Settings > About device > Software update. Let us know what you think of it in the comments below.
We previously reported that the Galaxy S6 Edge would be one of the first Samsung devices to receive Marshmallow. A timetable for the rollout of the new Android OS revealed that Samsung planned for the S6 Edge release to come out now long after the Note 5 and S6 Edge+.
As expected, the international Android 5.1.1 update delivered support for RAW images and lower ISO values. Samsung didn't make the changes public though, perhaps because they are not available via the stock camera or gallery app. If you want to shoot in RAW format and view images later, you'll need a third-party solution such as Camera FV-5 and Adobe Lightroom.
Sprint has rolled out Android 5.1.1 to the Samsung Galaxy S6, bringing it up to build G925PVPU2B0F7. The update arrives at around 563 MB and brings with it some typical bug fixes and improvements.
Ensure your battery is charged to at least 50 percent before downloading the update, and check our Android 5.1 features page to see what else is included with the new software version.
