AT&T Samsung Galaxy S5 gets Android 5.1.1 update

Although this flagship is fully capable of running Marshmallow, its owners on AT&T only get Android 5.1.1 for now.

Earlier this month, AT&T unleashed Android 5.1.1 for the Galaxy Note 4 and the Galaxy Note Edge. Now, the time has come for the Galaxy S5 to get the Lollipop treatment. Unfortunately, those hoping to get Marshmallow on these handsets on AT&T's network will have to continue waiting. Since the Galaxy S6 and the Galaxy S6 Edge also got Android 5.1.1 from AT&T last month, the older flagship will probably get version 6.0 of Google's mobile system a while after them as well.

The Android 5.1.1 Lollipop update for Samsung Galaxy S5 (SM-G900A) on AT&T carries build number G900AUCU4COI5 and comes with many fixes and security updates, as well as Android for Work, Ultra Power Saving mode enhancements for devices that use On Device Encryption, and more. Depending on the firmware currently installed on the Galaxy S5, the update could have a size between 609 and 999 MB.

AT&T delivers this update through OTA, but those eager to get it as fast as possible can check manually by going to Settings>About Device>Software Update>Update Now.

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.
