Samsung Rolls Out Android 5.1.1 Lollipop Update for Galaxy S6 and S6 Edge

Posted by on June 17, 2015

Samsung has started rolling out the new Android 5.1.1 Lollipop update for its Galaxy S6 and S6 Edge smartphones. According to SamMobile, the new Lollipop update brings some new features, bug fixes and performance improvements.

One of the biggest changes that come with the Android 5.1.1 is a more simplified exposure control in the Camera app, which lets users focus on their subject and then use a simple slider to adjust exposure.

In addition to that, the update also introduces a “parallax” effect for wallpaper, which allows the wallpaper to move behind your app icons to deliver a 3D-like effect. You can see it demonstrated in the hands-on video below from SamMobile.

Some other changes found in Android 5.1.1 include the ability to remove S Finder and quick connect buttons from the notifications section. The overall performance of the smartphones is getting improved as well.

The rollout starts with T-Mobile’s model in the US. If you live in the firmware supported region, you can manually check for the update from Settings -> About phone -> Software update.

With the rollout already having started in the US, it should not take too long for it to become available over the air (OTA) for the international model.
