Galaxy S6 Edge Plus Oreo update: 8.0 not supported; AT&T rolling out fix for Blueborne security issue

Galaxy s6 edge plus Oreo update

Update [November 10, 2017]: AT&T has begun rollout of its new security update, as version G928AUCS6EQH1. The OTA fixes the Blueborne security flaw, and install latest monthly patch for the month of September and October 2017.

Update [October 31, 2017]: Verizon is now rolling out a new OTA update for the S6 Edge+ users, that comes as version G928VVRS3CQI3. The new software update gets you latest security patch for the month of September and October 2017, and includes a fix for Blueborne security issue.


For the users of Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge Plus, the Oreo update is something that they may have to look upon with lots of envy — as theirs is a Samsung flagship device of yesteryear for which the support as regards major Android update drops now.

The S6 Edge Plus has seen its update cycle reach its end as regards major updates that involve change in Android OS version, while Samsung would keep rolling out monthly security patches in month or two’s time. As far as Samsung’s S series is concerned, the only two devices are gonna get the Oreo update: this year’s Galaxy S8, and last year’s Galaxy S7.

However, there remains hope that a custom ROM based on Android 8.0, like LineageOS 15, becomes available for the S6 Edge Plus users, so that can have a run with Android 8.0, the latest Android has on offer.

The S6 Edge Plus has received the sweetness of Android 7.0 Nougat OS, and the Android 7.1.1 looks next stop. We have got the firmware for your Galaxy S6 Edge Plus below, along with the changelog that includes the monthly security patch each update involves.

Android 8.0 Oreo update release details

Samsung released the Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge Plus on Android 5.1.1, and the device was updated to Marshmallow as well as Nougat. Right now, it’s running Android 7.0, and while we’d say that it looks likely — not confirmed — to get Android 7.1.1 update, the Android 8.0 looks very unlikely now. Unless Samsung surprises us, really.

  • Android 7.0: Released
  • Android 7.1.1: Release expected in November 2017
  • Android 8.0: Release not expected as device is not eligible

As you would expect, not many firmwares are available for the AT&T S6 Edge+ handset. Well, firmware for AT&T phones do not come out generally like that for other variants does, so we have to make-do with this.

Actually, at the moment, you have second latest update in software version G928AUCS4EQG1 available for download, which means that after installing it to go back to stock, you need just one OTA to reach latest software version, which is, build G928AUCS4EQH1. Not bad, eh!
