Unknown Update Lands on AT&T/Sprint Samsung Galaxy S6

A mysterious update has landed on the Samsung Galaxy S6 running on AT&T’s network, with no changelist accompanying the software. On top of that, users of Sprint are also reporting the upgrade that weighs in at 237MB and seems to add nothing new in terms of features of software enhancements. It certainly is not Android related as the GS6 remains on Lollipop 5.0.2.

Just two days ago a 159.29MB update landed on the Galaxy S6 flagship, but that did have a changelog that revealed improvements to the fingerprint scanner, new features for the image editor, and improvements with the UI. However, this new patch does not detail anything, which really makes us think there should be a rule whereby carriers simply must provide a changelog for all updates.

Just last week the European variant of Samsung’s recently launched smartphone received a 138.32MB update, which was sent out to deal with an issue where apps close earlier than they should. This is the most likely candidate for the AT&T/Sprint roll out happening now, but nothing has been confirmed by either carrier or indeed by Samsung.
