Samsung has begun the rollout of an over the air (OTA) update to its Samsung Galaxy S6 line overnight, which takes the software from the AOC4 build to AOD1. The actual update notification gave no clue as to what the update contained, beyond the standard ‘bug fixes and performance improvements’.
One thing that I’d very much like to see fixed, but I don’t think it’s in there just yet, is the solution to the S6’s memory leak issue, which causes performance degradation over a period of 24 to 36 hours or so. This build number – G920IDVU1AOD1 – does not appear to be the same as that released in the UK recently which is said to fix the memory leak situation while remaining at Android 5.0.2, but we will keep you posted as to whether it’s fix in this build anyway.
It is unclear when the same update will hit for carrier-branded handsets (this is an un-branded model), but various carriers have an update in waiting for the S6 (and S6 Edge in some instances) which is quite likely the same. We’ll keep you posted.
