Galaxy S6 and S6 edge are getting another update with fingerprint and other improvements

The Galaxy S6 and S6 edge recently got a software update that was said to fix the memory management issues that has been ruining the experience for many on the two devices. That update hasn’t shown up in too many regions since it started rolling out, and it seems it might have been a limited release, as Samsung is pushing out a different update with a different changelog in various countries in Asia and Europe.

This new update comes with build number XXU1AOE3 (the other update was XXU1AODG) and has a more detailed changelog – it improves the fingerprint recognition process, enhances the interface of a few Samsung apps, adds a new unnamed feature in the Photo Editor, and improves compatibility with accessories. Over in Malaysia, the OTA is a 159MB download, and our testing shows that the RAM management is still somewhat messed up.

It’s unclear what the differences are between the two; the previous update was for the Vodafone network in the UK while the newer one is going out as a general update in the country, so it’s possible the former is exclusive to carriers and network operators. We’ll be sure to let you know once things clear up; in the meantime, don’t forget to head into the Settings » About device » Software update to see if the update is available for your device, or grab the firmware from our firmware section for your particular region for upgrading manually.

Thanks, Looi Shi Hao!

no problem, everything works perfect, much better battery life and just slightly ram consumption improvement; try making a wipe cache partition in recovery

NIce to read about the new OTA but as i see the changelist is the same 4497415 on G925FXXU1AOCV and
G925FXXU1AOE3.

Or does the Changelist doesnt matter ?

I was thinking just the same. BUT, take a look at the soft coded XEF (France open), it has both updates with the samse changelist number but two diferent build date. So that shoul mean this firmware released officially yesterday shoul make improvoments though probably minor ones.

So many updates for the S6…
Anybody could give some help for S5 owners who downloaded the so buggy Lollipop 5.0 firmware?

Got the same update last May 4th. It was rolled out to all Philippine issued phones on both operator locked and factory unlocked phone.

The RAM issue is indeed still there. Hopefully Sammy will roll out the ram fix, globally.

Dit is waarom ik wacht op de Note 5.. Tegen dan zouden deze fouten er niet meer mogen inzitten normaal ;). Normaal gezien toch niet, maar ja, Samsung een beetje kennende… :)
