Verizon Galaxy S6 and Note 5 receiving Samsung Pay update (should come to S6 Edge and Edge + too)

With the release of Samsung Pay service finally, finally drawing closer, Samsung devices across the globe are in for an update that prepares them for the service by installing required code into the system, as well as adding the Samsung Pay app where it’s still missing (earlier updates added Samsung Pay, btw).

A similar update is now out for Verizon Galaxy S6 and Note 5 too as confirmed by users, and we’d wager that the same update can be expected on Verizon’s S6 Edge and S6 Edge+ too.

The update should be carrying the build no. ending with OI1, as we’ve seen with T-Mobile and Sprint updates too.

To check for an update on your device, head to Settings > About device. Check for system updates now.

Btw, Samsung Pay doesn’t work with devices whose KNOX flag has been tripped — this happens when you flash a TWRP recovery on your device, or a custom kernel that is required to be able to root on Android 5.1.1 update.

Kapil still loves his Galaxy S2 i9100! No, really. And Galaxy Nexus! Need we say more what kind of guy he is? And he's also a die-hard Liverpool FC fan. Email:

  1. Where is this information coming from? I received the security update on my Verizon note 5 yesterday but it’s the “OGJ” build… I am dying to try Samsung pay, it looks awesome… Is this article accurate?

    Same here… No, Samsung Pay…. Tired of Verizon’s Nonsense.
    It drives me crazy how quickly they jumped on the Apple wagon and to hell with Samsung while Sprint, T-Mobile and the other carriers are allowing it. Pure BS>
