We have a fresh leak in our hands that clearly indicates Samsung’s plan to update it’s high end Galaxy Smartphones to Android 5.1.1 in the coming months. The update roadmap lists seven Galaxy smartphones including the newly launched 2015 flagships Galaxy S6 and S6 Edge. To be honest we were a bit skeptical about Samsung updating its older flagships like the Galaxy S5 and Note 3 to Android 5.1.1 but as it seems, the bugs in the lollipop 5.0 builds have convinced them to come up with a quick fix, the others like the Galaxy Note, Note Edge and Galaxy Alpha were not a surprise at all.
The update to Android 5.1.1 Lollipop will bring a handful of tiny fixes here and there for the users running Android 5.0 Lollipop over Samsung’s own Touchwhiz. Along with the bug fixes, there will be some changes in the user interface too, but those will purely be device dependent. We must also mention that despite of being a bug fix update the Android 5.1.1 lollipop has several bugs of it own that have been brought into light by the Nexus community, perks of being the early adopters or a headache in this case. As always remember that updates are Region/Carrier bound and hence time frames may differ, this roadmap is for the Indian subcontinent only, but you still can expect the updates to come closely before or later in your regions (especially if you have a international unlocked model). Stay tuned for more details on the Android 5.1.1 lollipop updates for more Samsung devices and feel free to drop your views in the comments section below.
Update : Earlier today, the T-Mobile variant’s of the Samsung Galaxy S6 and S6 Edge got the much awaited Android 5.1.1 lollipop update in the States and it seems like the unlocked ones won’t have to wait much longer too.
