Galaxy S6 Edge: Which version of the Android platform does my Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge use?

Last Update Date : Apr 09. 2018

Software Update

Your device operates on Android version 5 (Lollipop).

Important: An Android update is approved by the manufacturer first. Once Samsung approves it, it is sent to the carriers. Each carrier customizes, modifies and releases their own version of Android. In some instances, they may never release an update. This results in customers with the same manufactured devices having different versions of Android. Please contact your carrier for Android update questions.

Note: Screens and settings available may vary by wireless service provider and software version.
