[Updated] Galaxy S6 and S6 edge start receiving S6 edge+ features with new update

During the unveiling of the Galaxy S6 edge+, Samsung showcased some new software features such as Apps Edge, ability to save images in RAW format in the camera app, and slightly updated icons. We hoped that these features would be made available to the Galaxy S6 and the Galaxy S6 edge as their specifications aren’t very different from the Galaxy S6 edge+.

Well, Samsung has already initiated a software update for the Galaxy S6 and the Galaxy S6 edge in Korea that adds some of those features. These new features include Samsung Pay, new icons and overall improved user interface, Apps Edge, and UHQ upscaler and Vacuum Tube Amp Pro for better audio. Samsung has also added a minor update to KNOX, no doubt as a result of the addition of Samsung Pay.

However, the update does not include features like shutter speed control or the ability to save images in RAW format. On the other hand, the Live YouTube Broadcasting mode has been added in the camera app. The update should hit the devices in Korea any time now, but if you can’t wait to try out these new features, you can download the new firmware from our firmware section and flash it manually.

Update: This software update is now rolling out in Europe as well though only a few countries have received it so far.

I got this update its very nice but i think the s6 edge plus doesn’t have software features and th IRL blaster doesn’t exsesist bad for the company to remove such a feature s6 edge is better than s6 edge plus i think

Updated my s6 edge this morning. Noticed the extra few options in the music player. However the sound through headphones doesn’t seem to have as much bass as it did before the update. Clearly notice a difference. Shame as it sounded awesome before. Anyone else notice this?

Meanwhile, Note 4 users have poor software support with oldest features. I will never buy a Samsung device, never again.

Nope, I’d be happy with my S6 if it stays the way it is now without any updates other than security ones of course.

I bought my s6 edge by an operator if I upgrade to manually firemwae – odin would lose any warranty with my operator or ocn samsung brand ? .. or operator would lose data where you buy ?

me compre mi s6 edge mediante un operador si lo actualizo con firemwae-odin manualmente perderia garantia alguna con mi operador o ocn la marca samsung?.. o perderia datos del operador donde compre?

Solo puedes actualizar con un firmware del mismo modelo. No es lo mismo un galaxy s6 edge g925f que un g925S por ejemplo. Si le metes un firmware de un modelo diferente tu celular se puede bloquear y no prender. Que modelo tienes? Y respondiendo a tu pregunta, no pierdes los datos de tu compañía pero podrías perder garantía, depende completamente de las políticas de tu operador.

Will it fix the RAM issue?

wraggieonetwo
10 months 6 days ago

What build are you rockin? If your up to date my friend the RAM issue is most certainly fixed! I’m on G920FXXU2BOG8 / three UK variant (not that the network would make a difference). Everything is keep there in the background nicely waiting to be opened, recent apps is far improved ie not laggy (although still not 100%), this build is generally snappier and more fluid. Battery life only seemed slightly improved to be fair. Facebook, Instagram and fb messenger were still hanging on the radio, basically keeping it active for many hours during one charge cycle. Uninstall these three and the battery is actually pretty decent haha. Getting more than a day and half out it now with moderate use.

Peace.

As far as battery life um at 4 hrs and 11m SOT with 40% battery life left witch is decent but the ram not holding its ground with the apps open…NO Facebook or messenger just IG and I notice it’s hanging on the cell as far as percentage wise but it’s not actually draining the battery

wraggieonetwo
10 months 5 days ago

Oddly Instagram was the worst out of the lot for me…… resource hungry little bugger….

andres ross

Um ON COF8 tmobile variant and the ram not fixed here in the States

wraggieonetwo

All these different builds is a confusion man…… the difference in RAM management for me is undeniable, such difference seriously. Have you deleted your partition cache or factory reset after the update? I personally always delete the partition cache after a system update, some would argue it’s not necessary but I have experienced first hand the difference it can make. Doing a factory reset is such a ball ache, only a last resort.
