Samsung Denies Report That It Paid People To Attend A Chinese PR Event, Original Story Retracted

Last week a report surfaced alleging that Samsung recruited and paid "temporary employees" to attend its Galaxy S6 launch event in China.

If true, then paid attendees would have amounted to approximately half of the people there. Samsung has categorically denied the report on the Samsung Tomorrow blog and claimed that the original newspaper has retracted the story.

T-Mobile Versions Of The Galaxy S6 And Galaxy S6 Edge Get Their First OTA Update

We're getting a few reports that some T-Mobile customers who preordered the Galaxy S6 and its edgier brother are already receiving their phones. When they turn them on, they might just be greeted by an over-the-air update right away. The new builds are actually dated March 22nd, so it's probable that every S6 and S6 Edge in T-Mobile's initial batch will need this update. The build is Android 5.0.2, labeled G920TUVU1AOCG and G925TUVU1AOCG for the S6 and S6 Edge, respectively.

There aren't any new features in either update, just a handful of fixes from Samsung:

  • Fingerprint scanner improvements
  • 'Failed to reboot' error message
  • Clock drift fix
  • Audio quality improvements
  • Calendar event fix
  • Exchange Global Address Lookup fix

Given T-Mobile's usual staged rollout, it may take several days or even a week or so for the OTA to get to your phone.
