With the Android M set to land across Androids around the globe sometime within the month, it’s high time for most handsets to have received Lollipop 5.1.1 upgrades already. As a guide, here are the upgrade statuses for the Samsung Galaxy S6 and the Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge across US carriers.
T-Mobile was ahead of the pack, and released the Over-The-Air upgrades for Samsung Galaxy S6, with the baseband version G920TUVU2COF8 for the S6, and G925TUVU1AOF8 for the S6 Edge. RAW photography support and lower ISO settings were included with the updates.
Sprint rolled out the OTA’s with the baseband numbers G920VPU20F7 for the S6 and G925PVPU2B057 for the S6 Edge in July.
Verizon Wireless recently updated its support documents, to reflect the latest changes rolled out on 9/2/2015. Both the Samsung Galaxy S6 and the Samsung S6 Edge received a Lollipop 5.1.1 upgrade with the software version LMY47X.G920VVRU3BOG5.
U.S. Cellular users received the G920R4TYU2BOF7 update for the Samsung Galaxy S6, and the G925R4TYU2BOF7 baseband version for the Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge.
AT&T didn’t have an OTA upgrade for the Lollipop 5.1.1 back in July, and neither does it have the update today. However, they did release critical updates back in May and July.
Android 6.0 Marshmallow will soon hit handsets, and the word is, it’ll be out this month. Some handsets, like the HTC One M8 will skip the Android 5.1.1 upgrade in favor of the Android 6.0 upgrade instead.
