Samsung Galaxy S6 series will no longer receive Android updates


The , Edge, Edge+, and the Active will not be receiving any more of Android or updates.

Samsung has officially ended support for the devices after four years of updates having been released in 2015 with Android 5.0 Lollipop. The devices are now running Android 7.0 Nougat so there will be no for the Galaxy S6 series.

The last security patch to hit the devices was back in February marking almost three years of security updates, which was more than initially promised.

While the Samsung Galaxy S6 was an excellent device, the end of support should trigger you to consider purchasing a new device. Samsung offers a trade-in program against the Galaxy S8 or the new Galaxy S9 so may be an excellent opportunity to upgrade to the latest Android smartphone with more up-to-date firmware.
