First Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge update already dropping

Having just hit the shelves today, the Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge is already being subjected to its first over-the-air update.

According to PhoneArena, consumers in the Netherlands have received a 250MB Android 5.0.2 update, designed to enhance overall functionality of the mobile with the curved display.

Specifically, it targets touchscreen responsiveness, the interface in various apps, the photo editor, and improves the phone’s compatibility with accessories.

As of yet, there are no reports as to when it will make its way to handsets in other countries.

There have been a few reports of scratched units and issues with battery drain, though our review sample suffered from neither. We’ve been impressed with the smartphone, awarding it a near-perfect 9/10, despite its lofty price.

The slightly cheaper Samsung Galaxy S6 has also left us purring, and we believe it could be one of the mobiles of the year.

Today, April 10 has proved a mighty busy day in the tech world, with Samsung’s arch-rival Apple also choosing to launch its latest wares today.

It turns out that most units of the Apple Watch won’t ship until June, but Samsung says it’s “delighted” that Apple has entered the wearables market, since it could benefit all players.
