Finally gaining access into Android 7.0 Nougat is, definitely, great news for all Samsung Galaxy S6 and S6 Edge user. But, what about Android 7.1.1?

Would these users ever see it?

In case you’re wondering what’s the fuss is all about version 7.1.1, this newer version brings the comprehensive emoji set from the Pixel duo, direct access to GIFs via the keyboard on Google’s messaging apps and app shortcuts that allow quick actions on apps by long-pressing their icons.

If you’re one of those who doubt Samsung will be bringing the newer update to the Galaxy S6 duo, you could always opt to install LineageOS 14.1. This custom ROM allows the Galaxy S6, along with these devices, to level up on the Android ecosystem.

For Galaxy S6 users, particularly the G920F model, you can download the custom firmware for LineageOS 14.1 here and the Google Apps Package right here.

There’s no need to worry if you’re not familiar with flashing a custom ROM as there are plenty of guides online to help you out, especially via YouTube. This is a good example of a tutorial you can find on that site:
