Sprint has today started rolling out Android Lollipop 5.1 for its Samsung Galaxy Note Edge, which the company has also pushed out non-Android patches for the Galaxy S6 and Galaxy S6 Edge. Sprint has been consistent with its Galaxy Note Edge updates, with this 5.1 update coming three months after Android 5.0 arrived on the device.

The Now Network is updating Samsung's bendy screened Galaxy Note 4 sibling over the air and in stages, so as is normally the case you may have to wait a few days if you have not already seen the notification to upgrade. The Android 5.1 update is hardly a major treasure trove of new features, and indeed Sprint does not list any new features at all on its support page. That means this update is likely just to squash bugs and clear up security issues, with Samsung not even adding anything new. That said, it is certainly worth pulling in when you can, just to be up to date.

The Galaxy S6 and Galaxy S6 Edge flagships are also getting updates on the third largest carrier in the United States. However, the patch does not bring a new Android build, or new features, but once again just does a bit of house cleaning. Sprint did not mention what exactly.
