Android 5.1.1 Lollipop hits the Int'l Galaxy S6 and S6 edge, but doesn't fix the RAM issue
With a slew of devices now receiving the Android 5.1.1 Lollipop update, the International versions of the Samsung Galaxy S6 and S6 edge are also getting some attention. French blog Planet Galaxy first noticed the Lollipop update hitting France earlier on today for the International Galaxy S6 (SM-G920F), and the corresponding S6 edge (SM-G925F) is also reaping the benefits of the latest software updates. 

There are plenty of benefits to enjoy, too. There's nothing particularly major, but there are a number of small tweaks and amendments, including a feature that lets you adjust camera exposure from within the viewfinder. Unfortunately, one of the more persistent problems with the Galaxy S6 continues to linger. The RAM-related issue has not been squished with this update, making a swift ascent to 80% of its maximum capacity once you start using the device, according to SamMobile. 

The update is around 623 MB in size, with SamMobile indicating its availability through Kies. There hasn't, as yet, been a sighting of an official OTA, but it seems like such a roll-out will occur imminently. 

Let us know if your International Galaxy S6 / S6 edge has gotten its update by leaving us a comment below. If you're still waiting, you can keep checking for updates by heading to Settings -> About device -> Software updates -> Check Now.
