T-Mobile rolls out OTA update for Galaxy S6 and S6 Edge before they're even on sale

Earlier this month, Samsung unveiled its latest Android flagships, the Galaxy S6 and Galaxy S6 Edge. A few days ago, major US carriers opened pre-orders for the new handsets (although Verizon won't begin accepting pre-orders until April 1), and T-Mobile announced that it is giving away a one-year Netflix membership with each purchase.

But even before the first devices are in customers' hands, T-Mobile is already rolling out its first update to the handsets. As Android Central reports, the OTA (over-the-air) update weighs in at 178.67MB, although its changelog is about as non-specific as it gets:

  • Device stability improvements, bug fixes
  • New and/or enhanced features
  • Further improvements to performance

The Galaxy S6 and Galaxy S6 Edge will go on general sale on April 10, with deliveries beginning on April 9 for those who have pre-ordered either handset directly from Samsung.

Given that we're now so close to their on-sale launch, there simply isn't enough time available to pre-load this new update onto the first batch of handsets before deliveries begin, so customers who buy the S6 or S6 Edge will have to grab the update for themselves once their device arrives.
