Electronics company Samsung Galaxy S6, S6 Edge, S6 Edge+ Updated With Bug Fixes, Performance Improvements: All Details
Considering that the phone is now seven and half years old, the software update is surprising, as even Samsung's recent flagship smartphones receive a maximum of five years of software support.
Samsung Galaxy S6 users will receive a notification to install the update once it is ready for their smartphone.
They can also manually check for an update in order to download and install the latest software version.
The updates were first spotted by Galaxyclub in the Netherlands and Belgium.
They weigh in at under 13MB, compared to the larger 420MB update that was rolled out to the Samsung Galaxy S8.
The smaller size of the update indicates that it probably does not even include a new security patch.
Samsung is reportedly rolling out software updates for its older Galaxy S6 series smartphones from 2015.
The firmware updates have been spotted in the Netherlands and Belgium and is soon expected to cover all carriers and unlocked models in the region.
Last month, the company released updates for Galaxy S8 and S7, which included a fix for global positioning system issues.
However, the changelog for the latest update on the S6 series only mentions stability improvements and bug fixes along with unspecified “new and/or improved features” and “further performance improvements”.
