Galaxy S6 Edge Android Marshmallow update

On February 15, Samsung announced via its Newsroom that it is beginning to roll out Android 6.0 Marshmallow to the Galaxy S6 Edge. The update could take some time to completely roll out, but the announcement is good news for all owners, who have been kept waiting for longer than expected.

Verizon took to the airwaves on April 1 with news that was definitely not an April Fools joke. The carrier announced that it is beginning to roll out its Marshmallow update. The update will wash over the US in waves, so keep checking your device by going to Settings > About device > Software update.

For full details, visit our Android Marshmallow update overview.

Android 5.1.1: RAW support and lower ISO values

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. 

T-Mobile Galaxy S6 Edge Android update

T-Mobile customers started to receive Android 5.1.1 in June 2015. The key feature to be added was Guest Mode, which lets you set up your phone so other people can use it without stumbling upon things you don't want them to.

Verizon Galaxy S6 Edge Android update

AT&T Galaxy S6 Edge Android update

On September 25, AT&T released an OTA update, upgrading the S6 Edge to Android 5.1.1 Lollipop. The update also included a bundle of new additions, such as Android Pay, and offered up some improvements to audio and performance. The software version is LMY47X.G925AUCU3BO12.

    Well, this is classic. Downloaded G928VVRU2BPC2 for my edge+ last night and lost the voice to text feature. The mic button has been replaced with a settings button... WTH?! Called Verizon today and they said they've been inundated with complaints. Tried a workaround, to no avail. Thanks, Google!

    i have the S5, , im getting the S7 as soon as i can, im still waiting for this stupid update, ill be having a new phone before i get this update. im thinking of rooting the S5, and keeping it as a spare phone. who knows , a rooted S5, might be as good as the S7.

  • It has been two months since the last update from Verizon for the S6 Edge. When is Marshmallow going to be released?

  • Why did I just get this notification now? it's 2/09/2016. Hmm....curious.

  • Im getting a good battery life from my s6 edge + but im expecting to be much better from marshmallow whit doze

  • I have samsung galaxy s6 edge through AT&T and when I go to options >about device> check for software update it says there are no new updates. I currently have 5.1.1

  • I have a Verizon S6 Edge and under About there is no option to upgrade. When I go to the system update option it tells me there is no upgrade available. Leave it to Verizon for being so slow with upgrades

  • I have an AT&T Galaxy S6 Edge. About an hour ago, my phone alerted me that it was downloading software for a new update (without prompting.) I let it do that uninterrupted and a while later, a box popped up to restart the device. I hit "restart" and walked away. When I came back to my phone and unlocked the screen, it said the software update was interrupted and was unsuccessful. There was no issues with my WiFi and it was on the charger. I have no clue what happened and if this was the update my phone was trying to receive? When I go to manually do a software update, it just says "no firmware" and won't go any further. I've read a few blogs and haven't found a fix... Anyone?

  • Definitely happy with mines. much better resources being consumed which means better standby and overall battery life than on 5.0.2 or on my Note 4 or NoteEdge with 5.0.1
