We were the first to report last month about Samsung developing the Android 5.1 update for the Galaxy S6 and S6 edge. Even though the company hasn’t provided a release timeframe there’s reason to believe now that the update will be released for these handsets next month. Canadian carrier Rogers has mentioned on its website that Android 5.1 for the Galaxy S6 and S6 edge will be released by June 2015, the website does state that this is an estimated release timeframe so the possibility of a change can not be ruled out yet.
Given that there’s no reason why Rogers should get the update earlier than other carriers, it would be safe to say that Android 5.1 for the Galaxy S6 and S6 edge will arrive on other carriers around the world as well if and when the roll out begins in June. Android 5.1 isn’t really a major update so users shouldn’t expect any drastic changes, however they will find performance and stability improvements as well as crucial bug fixes. As we have already reported exclusively Android 5.1 is going to bring Guest Mode and a plethora of new camera features, the ability to capture RAW images included, to the Galaxy S6 and the Galaxy S6 edge.
