T-Mobile has already started updating the Samsung Galaxy S6 to Android 5.1.1, starting the roll out earlier this week. The Magenta Network could now turning its focus to the older Galaxy S5, which was of course Samsung's 2014 flagship smartphone. That's because the Korean super company is currently working on the Android 5.1.1 Lollipop software, meaning it should be coming to T-Mobile and indeed all carriers soon.

Android 5.1.1 does not bring sweeping changes to the Lollipop party, although it does add some new features such as the ability to join Wi-Fi and connect to Bluetooth from the Quick Settings menu, while the new User Protection feature means a lost or stolen device can only be awoken if the owner signs into their Google account.

Samsung is only now working on the software, so we are not expecting it to land on the Galaxy S5 this month, although we would think it will arrive sometime during the third quarter.
