Samsung allegedly working on updating the Galaxy S6 and S6 edge to Android 5.1 Lollipop
According to a new report, Samsung is currently working on updating the Galaxy S6 and the Galaxy S6 edge to Android 5.1 Lollipop. As many probably already know, the two Galaxy S6 models currently run Android 5.0.2 Lollipop, overlaid with Samsung's own TouchWiz UX.

At the moment, there is no information regarding the improvements that Android 5.1 Lollipop will bring to the Samsung Galaxy S6 and the Galaxy S6 edge. The latest version of Android is mostly focused on fixing various bugs that got introduced with 5.0 Lollipop, while the notable additions are limited to the ability to join Wi-Fi networks and pair Bluetooth devices directly from the quick settings screen, and the new Device Protection feature. The source doesn't mention when the latest version of Android should start reaching Galaxy S6 smartphones. 

The same insider sources were quoted claiming that Samsung is also working on updating non-flagship smartphones to Android 5.0 Lollipop. Allegedly, the Galaxy Core Prime, the Galaxy Grand Prime, and the Galaxy Mega 2 should all start receiving their updates in the near future. Unfortunately for Galaxy Note 2 owners, the sources cannot guarantee that the second incarnation of the Galaxy Note series will be updated past Android 4.4 KitKat.
