The new firmware update being rolled out to both the Galaxy S6 and the Galaxy S6 Edge comes with the January 2019 Android security patch. Considering that both these smartphones are around four years old, it is good to see that Samsung is still taking care of them.

Following the update, the Galaxy S6 and the Galaxy S6 Edge are expected to deliver an overall improved user experience.

It is not immediately clear as to when Samsung will release the update for Galaxy S6 and Galaxy S6 Edge in India and the other regions. Samsung has not officially revealed any information on the same, however, we will keep you updated with the further developments.
