AT&T Galaxy S5 Active gets Android 5.1.1 update

Samsung Galaxy S5 Active gets Android 5.1.1 Lollipop on AT&T

Less than a month after its sibling Galaxy S5 got the Android 5.1.1 update, this handset gets a new firmware as well.

Samsung Galaxy S5 on AT&T received the Android 5.1.1 Lollipop update less than a month ago, despite the fact it is a handset fully capable of running Android 6.0 Marshmallow. Now, the Galaxy S5 Active handsets on this carrier's network get the 5.1.1 update as well. AT&T is the only carrier in the US selling handsets from the Active family.

According to SamMobile, AT&T has released a rather large update, considering that Samsung Galaxy S5 Active got the last one a few months ago, when it received Android 5.0 Lollipop. Now, moving from 5.0 to 5.1 on this handset brings the firmware build number to LMY47X.G870AUCU2COJ3 and requires the download of no less than 640 MB of data. 

Unfortunately, the update does not bring any new features - this is an incremental update that delivers a few security patches, fixes Ultra Power Saving mode for handsets that use On Device Encryption, and adds the Android for Work platform to the operating system as well.

Although I have been writing about new software and hardware for almost a decade, I consider myself to be old school. I always enjoy listening to music on CD or tape instead of digital files and I will not even get into the touchscreen vs physical keys debate. However, I also enjoy new technology, as I now have the chance to take a look at the future every day. I joined the Notebookcheck crew back in 2013 and I have no plans to leave the ship anytime soon.
