Galaxy S6 (Edge) Starts Receiving S6 Edge+ Features In Korea

August 20, 2015 - Written By Kristijan Lucic

Samsung has recently announced two new phablets, the Galaxy Note 5 and Galaxy S6 Edge+. That being said, we’ve already covered both of those devices at length, and are here to talk about the other two flagships Samsung has announced earlier this year, the Galaxy S6 and Galaxy S6 Edge. Samsung’s flagship smartphones were unveiled during MWC in Barcelona back in March, and the two devices have just started receiving new features, the ones you can find on the Galaxy S6 Edge+.

This Korean tech giant has showcased a number of software features during the unveiling of the Galaxy S6 Edge+, such as ‘Apps Edge’, the ability to save images in a RAW format, the new camera apps and updated icon designs. Many Galaxy S6 and S6 Edge consumers were wondering if these features will come their way and when. Well, we have good news, the company has started rolling out a software update for the two devices in Korea, which will add some of these features the Galaxy S6 and Galaxy S6 Edge devices. Here’s a list of the upcoming features: Samsung Pay, new icons and re-designed user interface, Apps Edge, UHQ upscaler and Vacuum Tube Amp Pro. You’ll also get a KNOX update along with this, so keep that in mind.

There are a number of features that were omitted from this update however, like the ability to control shutter speed and save images in RAW format, for example. The Live YouTube Broadcasting mode hasn’t been added to the camera app either. Samsung will, hopefully, add those features later on. As we already mentioned, the update is rolling out to Korean Galaxy S6 and Galaxy S6 Edge devices as we speak, and if you just can’t wait to try it out, you can download the new firmware by clicking here (and flash it). Unfortunately for those of you who live outside of Korea, we still have no idea when will Samsung start pushing this update elsewhere, and your carriers will play a huge part in it, presuming you didn’t buy the device unlocked, of course. Either way, we’ll let you know as soon as some additional info surfaces, stay tuned.
