If you watched last week’s Unpacked event and then sadly looked down at the outdated software on your old Galaxy S6 or S6 Edge, you will be glad to know that Samsung is well under way to get your phone up to speed.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

  1. Being a Nexus owner for a long time (Nexus S, Galaxy Nexus, Nexus4, Nexus5 and then some Motorolas) i had to change to a Galaxy S6 Edge for LTE coverage purposes in my country. I hate it. Samsung should focus on hardware, not software. Make a phone with a battery that lasts two days, Make a phone that can take pictures under water, something that doesn’t need a case and wont brake. 4k video, great photos in night time, even night vision. That is what we need. not more software that we don’t use and we can’t remove.

    • Maybe more Active variants (that are not exclusives) would be your solution? The S6 Active had a much bigger battery.

      TouchWiz still needs work. They should put priority to fix the multitasking issue it currently has before adding in these miscellaneous features.

      • it did seem like a much better option, but the active takes more steps away from a cleaner android with more Samsung apps for “active” people. My solution is the new Moto X Pure, I think it will be the best handset of 2015.
