When a new Android Operating System update is announced by Google there are a few steps that take place before it becomes ready for your device.  The manufacturer receives the update and customises the software for the device and mobile carriers in each country.  Once this is completed they’ll send the update to the carriers for testing.


For more info on this process check out our page:

Android Device Updates - What's The Process?


The below table provides info on the latest Android updates we’ve received for testing and approval as of 18/04/2016. If no info is listed, it means we haven't received the build or any new details from the manufacturer.


When a version is marked as completed it means testing has been finished on our end and approved.  Each manufacturer has a process for releasing updates to devices & once we approve the update, it’s sent back to the manufacturer to be released through their standard update processes. Generally, updates are rolled out progressively, where it’s made available for a small number of users (5% for example) initially. If no unforeseen problems pop up, it’ll be gradually made available to more & more users over a period of a couple of weeks.

S6 Edge Plus?? Isnt the S6 Plus iPhone??

Contributor savage01

Still nothing on the galaxy s5 sm-g900i? 

We didn't get anything over 5.0 and now we have to wait how long for 6.0?

Any indication would be nice, are you testing it yet?

Contributor Pommster

The Galaxy S6 Edge Plus isn't the iPhone 6S Plus. 


It's like a large Galaxy S6 (or a Note 5 with no Stylus and curve on the other side of the phone) 

Visitor Ptknguyen246

Yeah right, S6 Edge gets update but note 5. Typicalet Samsung move

What the.......

Not 6.0.1 for S6 Edge?

Samsung doesn't even have 6.0 Marshmallow for S6 edge...... How did you guys even.....

If this firmware doesn't contain Samsung pay...

I will be pretty mad.....

Contributor savage01

It would appear optus doesn't even monitor this page let alone worry about updates.

I am excited and I thought id share the excitement, Android 6.0.1 is now available for the optus Note 5. Props to Optus for pushing the updates put a lot sooner compared to the previouse Note line up, however, it is still not soon enough haha we need you to strive for perfection!!!


Contributor anthony

6.01 is fantastic, one thing I did notice that was missing & should have been included is support for WiFi calling. Why wasn't this included as part of the standard 6.01 release Optus? 

Frequent Visitor jason2

Probably because native/standardised wifi calling isn't available on the Optus network yet.


Re the update list, Optus is really only testing ONE device update at present? That can't be right. Where's the S7/S7e update?? This thing is still on the original shipping firmware, with plenty of hotfixes and enhancements Samsung have issued !!
