Galaxy Android 5.1.1 Release: 7 Things We Learned in August

The Samsung Galaxy Android 5.1.1 release continues to make progress as we push towards September and the Android Marshmallow release from Google. With that in mind, we take a look at a few important things we learned this month about the Samsung Galaxy Android 5.1.1 release and what’s coming next.

In June, Samsung started rolling out the Android 5.1.1 Lollipop update to the Galaxy S6 and Galaxy S6 Edge. The update’s arrived a few weeks after Google’s initial roll out and they have since spread to a number of different devices in Samsung’s lineup including top names like the Galaxy Note 4 and Galaxy Note Edge.

August was a busy month for Samsung and its Android 5.1.1 release for Galaxy smartphones and tablets. The update landed for a number of new models and it also delivered a key fix for the Stagefright vulnerability that emerged at the end of July. Stagefright was the catalyst for Samsung’s promise to push out for timely security updates to Galaxy devices.

We’ve heard a lot about the Galaxy Android 5.1.1 release and we’ve also started to hear a lot about what’s coming up after Android 5.1.1. Samsung’s got an Android Marshmallow release on the way and it looks like it will be coming to Galaxy devices in the near future. If the information is spot on, it appears that some devices might jump from Android 5.0.2 or below to Android 6.0.

The first thing that we learned is that Samsung's clearly made the Galaxy S6 Android 5.1.1 update, for the regular model and the Galaxy S6 Edge, a priority.

It also recently landed for Galaxy S6 users on Vodafone Australia and a pair of other Australian carriers should get the update out soon. We expect to see progress continue as we push into September towards an Android Marshmallow update.
