T-Mobile just started updating the Galaxy S5 to Android 5.1.1

T-Mobile might just be on the way to becoming the favorite carrier for those rocking a Samsung flagship. The carrier was the first to update the Galaxy S6 and Galaxy S6 edge to Android 5.1.1, and it has now started rolling out the latest version of Android for the Galaxy S5. That’s right – Galaxy S5 users on T-Mobile just scored Android 5.1.1 before most Galaxy S6 and S6 edge owners around the world.

We’re not sure what changes are included in the update, but you can expect to see performance improvements, support for RAW and lower ISO values if you’re using a third-party camera app that makes use of Lollipop’s camera API, and a slew of bug fixes. The update should be rolling out over the air later today and over the coming days, and you can also download the full firmware from our firmware section or update through Samsung Kies.
