Android 5.1.1 Lollipop heads to Galaxy S6 and S6 edge in Canada, then gets pulled due to a bug

Later this month, Google will unveil its new Nexus flagship phones, the company's showcase devices for the next version of its OS, Android 6.0 Marshmallow. For now, its latest release - Android 5.1.1 Lollipop - is continuing to make its way to existing devices, including Samsung's Galaxy S6 and S6 edge.

Android 5.1.1 has been making its way to the S6 and S6 edge around the world in recent months, including a rollout in India last month. Yesterday, Canadian carrier Rogers became the country's first to release 5.1.1 for the two handsets, with other operators expected to soon follow. Weighing in at 475MB, the update promised security enhancements, an improved user experience, better stability, and various other additions and tweaks.

However, as MobileSyrup reports, the update was pulled just hours after its release, after Rogers discovered a bug that it says it's "currently working with Samsung" to fix. However, there's no estimated delivery time for that fix yet.

Both companies have had months to test Android 5.1.1, since Google compiled its first device-ready builds in April. Given that a bug was discovered literally hours after its release, some users may well be wondering how thoroughly the update was actually tested before it was approved.
