Galaxy S6 and S6 Edge updates for new features are under way

If you watched last week’s Unpacked event and then sadly looked down at the outdated software on your old Galaxy S6 or S6 Edge, you will be glad to know that Samsung is well under way to get your phone up to speed.

According to a report via Sammobile, Samsung has begun to update handsets in Korea to the latest version of TouchWiz.  This includes that new minor makeover (bubbly icons) and new features:  Samsung Pay, Apps Edge (for the S6 Edge), and Live YouTube Broadcasting.



Probably lesser-known, Samsung had created a couple features in the update to boost audio quality, UHQ upscaler and Vacuum Tube Amp Pro.  KNOX also received an update in preparation for the launch of Samsung Pay.

Unfortunately for those hoping to have the ability to save camera images in RAW format, it looks like you’re going to have to keep waiting.  Of course, the update is in its early stages, and we don’t know if it will be identical in other markets.  So hang tight.

If you’re ansy to check out the features first-hand, Sammobile has a link to download the new firmware and flash manually.
