Mere hours ago we got word that the update to Android 5.1.1 Lollipop was already rolling out to Samsung Galaxy S6 units in France. This follows the world premiere of this Android version's rollout for Samsung handsets, which happened last week on T-Mobile.
And now the Galaxy S6 edge is getting Android 5.1.1 in Europe too. In this case, for now it's only being distributed to handsets which were sold in the UK and Ireland. That said, undoubtedly it will spread to more places in a few weeks at most.
The update is for the SM-G925F model of the S6 edge, better known as the international variation. After applying it, you'll be running software version G925FXXU2BOFJ.
It looks like an over-the-air rollout hasn't commenced yet, but you can get the update by using Kies, Samsung's desktop PC companion app.
Expecting 5.1.1 for Indian version of S6 edge.. When that is possible?
Also Kies is incompatible with the S6 and S6 Edge. You have to use Samsung Smart Switch which doesn't appear to have the ability to update the firmware, only reload the original firmware
The comment is incorrect - both regarding S6 compatibility with S6 Edge, and making reference to France and then Europe, as if the two are very different...
