The last 24 hours has been loaded with devices updating, or soon to be updating, to some variant of Android 5.0 Lollipop. Yesterday we heard from Mo Versi that the Sprint HTC One M9 will be seeing its Lollipop update on July 1st. Those of you on the Now Network sporting a Samsung Galaxy S6 or S6 Edge don’t have to wait until tomorrow though, as your Android 5.1 update has supposedly already begun.
I am seeing reports across the internet on various blogs that some owners of the device have been greeted with the update this morning. It weighs in at 563.18MB’s and brings in all the usual enhancements like Factory Data Reset Protection, bug fixes, stability improvements and more. The Galaxy S6 is getting software version G920PVPU2B0F7 and the S6 Edge is seeing G925PVPU2B0F7. Sprint’s support page for each device is rather lacking in any other additional details, simply listing Android 5.1 and bug fixes.
If you are sporting one of those Samsung flagship devices with Sprint, be on the lookout for the update. You can head to Settings > About Device > Software Update to see if you can get your hands on it now. If you do see it, make sure you have well over 50% battery life, a solid Wi-Fi connection and some time to kill for it to download and install. Enjoy!
