It seems like it has only been a week since Samsung released an over-the-air (OTA) update for the Galaxy S6 and Galaxy S6 Edge … and that’s because it has been. Well, yesterday we received heads up that there’d been another update rolled out to un-branded Australian stock, and we have confirmed this last night on our review unit.
The update takes the build number to G920IDVU1BOE2, which remains at Android 5.0.2 with a build date of 8 May 2015 instead of March 2015 which the earlier two versions had. As is usually the case with Samsung OTA updates, there’s no change-log to speak of (beyond unspecified bug fixes and performance improvements), and we haven’t noticed anything visually different in the new update.
Given it only arrived yesterday, we haven’t had sufficient time to work out whether the memory leak has been resolved (which is our biggest hope), and in our discussions with Samsung representatives last week, they had no information about whether there’d be any updates soon, or what they might contain. So, I guess it’s status quo; we’ll explore the update as the opportunity allows and let you know whether anything is fixed or changed.
Have you received the new update yet? We know at least one Ausdroid reader has (thanks Kai!) but if more of you have, please let us know and whether you’ve noticed anything new or different!
