As we all know, the Galaxy S6 has been updated to the Android 5.1.1 OS, recently, in some regions around the world.
The first carrier in the United States to offer this latest update on the Galaxy S6 was T-Mobile. Lately, we have been reported that T-Mobile has started rolling out the update for the Galaxy S5, becoming the first carrier to offer this update for the Galaxy S5.
This means that the Galaxy S5 users on T-Mobile in the United States will be able to experience the Android 5.1.1 OS even before some of the Galaxy S6 owners around the world.
This update will be featuring almost the same features as the Android 5.1.1 update on the galaxy S6.
The Android 5.1.1 OS update might be featuring some performance tweaks under the hood. However, it is highly unlikely that this update will fix the poor RAM management on the 5.1.1 OS.
Besides the performance tweaks, this update will bring RAW shooting support and lower ISO values for the Lollipop’s Camera API.
These advanced camera features can be accessed by installing a third-party camera application. The update will also feature some of the bug fixes and UI improvements.
T-Mobile has started rolling out the update over-the-air. According to T-Mobile, all of the devices will be updated over the upcoming days.
However, if you cannot wait to receive the 5.1.1 over-the-air, you can download it from the internet.
Additionally, you can also update your device by connecting it to PC and installing the updates over Samsung Kies. This firmware is released for SM-G900T models in the United States, provided by T-Mobile.
