Samsung Galaxy S6, S6 Edge Update Brings Galaxy S6 Edge+ Features: Report

If you own either of Samsung's flagship smartphones from 2015, you are likely to receive some (if not all) of the new software features of the Galaxy Edge+ on your smartphone. Samsung is reported to have started rolling out an update (currently in Korea) to add several of the newly introduced Galaxy Edge+ software features to its Samsung Galaxy S6 and the Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge smartphones.

The Galaxy S6 Edge+, which was unveiled at a media event on August 13 alongside the Galaxy Note 5 phablet flagship, comes with a range of new software features. Some of these software features include Apps Edge, UHQ upscaler, Samsung Pay, and Vacuum Tube Amp Pro among others.

The company has started to roll out a software update to the Galaxy S6 and the Galaxy S6 edge to add many of these features, SamMobile reported.

The update, which is currently being rolled out in Korea, doesn't come with some of Edge+'s features however, like the ability to save images in RAW format, or make changes to the shutter speed. It does bring the Live YouTube Broadcasting mode in the camera app though.

The roll out was also just ahead of the Samsung Pay launch in South Korea, which kicks off Thursday. To recall, the US launch of Samsung Pay is on September 28.

The update hints at company's intention to release these new interesting software features to the Galaxy S6 Edge or the Galaxy S6 users. The Galaxy S6 and the Galaxy S6 Edge flagship smartphones were launched on March 2015. At this point it is not known if the company will release some of these features to the Galaxy S5 and the Galaxy Note 4 - its last year's flagship smartphone and phablet.

Samsung is yet to publicly announce the availability of these features for the Galaxy S6 and S6 Edge, and it is not certain exactly when it will release this update in India and other regions.
