Video shows Android 5.1.1 update for Galaxy S6, Galaxy S6 Edge

Get ready for Android 5.1.1 for your Samsung Galaxy S6 and Galaxy S6 Edge. While we’ve already heard of a few changes coming to the update, namely tweaks to the camera that allow you to take more manual control over exposure, SamMobile on Wednesday published a video walking us through the update.

The quick clip previews Android 5.1.1 Lollipop running on both the Galaxy S6 and Galaxy S6 Edge, but SamMobile warns it’s a test build and that there may be some changes in the future before Samsung releases it. Here’s a look at some changes:

  • After entering into the camera, you can tap on a specific focus point, after which a light bulb pops up that lets you change the exposures.
  • There’s a new option to easily organize apps alphabetically inside your main app list.
  • You can also remove QuickConnect and S Finder from the notification shade.
  • Samsung made the theme store button more prominent by highlighting it in a big purple box at the bottom of the themes application.
  • Finally, you can turn on/off the “motion “effect of the wallpaper after the update is applied.
  • Sadly, multiuser support isn’t anywhere to be found.

Users should be able to apply the update sometime in June or July, SamMobile said.
