This of course, was the T-Mobile model, while the AT&T model didn't seem to get the update to the very same software until late October , some two or three weeks after the Galaxy Note 4 and Galaxy Note Edge. As of today, AT&T is updating their other version of the Galaxy S5 to Android 5.1.1 as well...
