Canadian carrier Rogers says Samsung Galaxy S6 and S6 Edge to get Android 5.1 in June


Samsung Galaxy S6 DSC09368

While we like to get our word on software updates from official sources, getting it from a carrier is the next best thing. Rogers — a leading Canadian carrier — is claiming that the upgrade to Android 5.1 for the Samsung Galaxy S6 and S6 Edge will be on tap this July.

An exact date wasn’t given, and these expectations are always subject to change so perhaps it’s not worth getting excited just yet. We also know that even if the date is accurate, the same may not be true for other carriers and regions.

That said, the Galaxy S6 isn’t really in dire need of an immediate upgrade to Android 5.1 — that is, unless that update brings the memory leak fix we’ve been waiting for Samsung to deliver. Most people are happy enough on the current build of Android 5.0, and if Samsung can fix some of the current issues folks are having (such as this one) with a quick maintenance patch or two ahead of the next major revision we’ll be just as happy.

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.
