Samsung Galaxy S6 and S6 Edge’s latest maintenance update brings improved fingerprint scanner recognition

Samsung’s supposed memory leak update for the Samsung Galaxy S6 and Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge have yet to see the light of day in official capacity, but another important maintenance upgrade seems to be headed out to the handsets. Folks in various Asian and European countries are beginning to see verison XXU1AOE3 pop up.

It’s a relatively light download at 159.29MB, and it brings with it the following changes:

  • Improved fingerprint recognition process
  • New feature in Photo Editor (no word yet on what this new feature is)
  • Improved compatibility with accessories
  • Enhanced user interface for Email, Music, S Planner and other apps

As always, you can expect this thing to roll out in stages, with unlocked devices likely getting the first swing at the new goods. Carrier variants are subject to testing and certification, so it may be a while yet before you’re able to pull it down.

The "Google Phone" sounded too awesome to pass up, so I bought a G1. The rest is history. And yes, I know my name isn't Wilson.

  1. Maybe carriers will lump them together and release them together…

    … in 6 months. /end-cynicism

  2. Did it fix the rotation problem with the Edge?

  3. Hoping this hits VZW. I tried FP recognition, but it was hit/miss and took more time than a pin.

  4. How about the “OK Google Anywhere” Fix? Is that coming?

  5. Lol they’re only doing this to try and plug the root hole

    1. It’s starting to look like Samsung is now Apple

  6. Does nothing about the RAM management I see…talk about priorities…. My a$$.

      1. The only keeping up I do…..is with the Kardashians. That @ss breh.

      2. So this is only available on Vodafone? This is a huge issue and needs to be available in the US asap. 3GB RAM is almost meaningless right now nothing stays in memory.

  7. Downloading the update on my Sprint S6 Edge right now.

  8. Nexus 6 or the Galaxy S6?…. and go

    1. I thought about that, I’m going for the s6, I also considered the g4, but after a reviewer posted videos of a camera comparison the s6 took better video. For the g4 to have a 3 axis stabilizer it still was shaky. As for the nexus… I guess you could if you like the bare bone features. I just wish it was more phablet like. Not just another big phone.
