Samsung is reportedly releasing software updates for its older Galaxy S6 smartphones from 2015, which have been spotted in the Netherlands and Belgium, and are expected to include all carriers and unlocked models in the region. Last month, the company issued updates for the Galaxy S8 and S7, which included a fix for global positioning system issues. However, the changelog for the latest update on the S6 series only mentions stability improvements and bug fixes as well as unspecified new and/or improved features.
Galaxyclub in the Netherlands and Belgium first saw the updates. They are under 13 inches higher than the larger 420MB version that was later upgraded to the Samsung Galaxy S8. The smaller size of the update suggests that it does not even include a new security patch.
Users of Samsung Galaxy S6 will receive a notification to modify the update once it is ready for their smartphone. A person may also manually check for an update to enable them to download and install the latest software version.
The software update is surprising, considering that the phone is now seven and half years old, as well as Samsung''s most recent flagship phones have a maximum of five years of software support.
The most recent Samsung Galaxy A40 from 2019 has received its latest September update that weighs in at 280MB. The phone is currently on its quarterly update schedule and might drop down to the biannual schedule as it completes four years in production. Samsung''s A-series models from 2018, and models like the Galaxy A30, A60, A70, A80, and A90 5G are currently on the biannual update schedule.
Samsung is one of the major original equipment manufacturers (OEMs) that has not yet implemented "Seamless Updates" on its smartphones.
