Galaxy S6 and S6 Edge handsets on T-Mobile get their first software updates

Samsung Galaxy S6 vs Galaxy S6 Edge-1

T-Mobile subscribers who have already received their shiny new Galaxy S6 or Galaxy S6 Edge are already being greeted by their first software updates. Based on Android 5.0.2, the releases bring a number of welcome improvements.

The new firmwares are dated March 22, Android Police reports, so it’s likely that everyone who buys a Galaxy S6 or S6 Edge on T-Mobile over the coming weeks will need to install it.

The build numbers are G920TUVU1AOCG for the Galaxy S6, and G925TUVU1AOCG for the S6 Edge — and they each weigh in at just 178.67MB. You’ll still need a Wi-Fi connection to download them directly to your device, however.

While the releases don’t include any new features, they do include a bunch of fixes that most users will be pleased to see. Here’s the full list:

  • Fingerprint scanner improvements
  • ‘Failed to reboot’ error message
  • Clock drift fix
  • Audio quality improvements
  • Calendar event fix
  • Exchange Global Address Lookup fix

T-Mobile usually rolls out its Android updates in phases, so it’s likely it could take a couple of weeks or more for all Galaxy S6 and S6 Edge users to receive these — especially if there are large numbers of pre-orders.
