When is Galaxy S6 5.1 update releasing?

When will the update be released? Its been out for 5 months already, and includes important security updates like the keyboard fix. Even 5.1.1 is out now, and my phone is still running the OS from last year. This is unacceptable.

Unless you want to add bugs into your phone and reduce your batery life, I would not recommend upgrading to 5.1.1 just yet.

Hi,

 

It's been a while since the status hasn't change for the update to 5.1.1...

What is the hold off??

 

It seem like almost every where the 5.1 update is beeing release exept in Canada.

 

When I've chated with Samsung tech support they told me that the ball was on your side.

 

Are your gonna release the 5.1 before 6 rolls out, since Samsung stated that it will be supported?

 

It's kind of a let down when you buy hi-end product like that and your not getting the update on a reasonable period.

 

Thanks.

Hey everyone, 5.1.1 is now available for the S6 and S6 Edge. You should receive a notification to complete the update shortly!

I am betting there will be no update , not all the US carriers have it for their phones either, i dont know why  , must have some thing  to do with the way  each phone carrier has control of the phones using their network .and maybe that update lessens that control
