Not so long ago, AT&T and Verizon started rolling out Android 7.0 Nougat to the 2015 Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge+. Well, T-Mobile users can now enjoy the same treat as at the time of this writing.
The update is rolling out over the air and it bumps the software installed on the T-Mobile variant of the Galaxy S6 Edge+ from Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow to the new Android 7.0 Nougat. All other Samsung devices have been updated to this version, but we don’t know when the newer v7.1.1 or even the newest v7.1.2 will hit these devices.
A few weeks ago, T-Mobile had updated the official Galaxy S6 Edge+ support page to confirm that the device was being tested for Android 7.0 Nougat. This was an indicator that the update will be released very soon. Well, this day is here and those donning the phablet can watch out for software version G928TUVU4EQC6.
Like any other OTA update, it will take time before all Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge+ users get the go ahead to download and install the OS on their devices. Since the handset had already received last month’s Android security patch, we are hopeful that this version brings the latest security patch for the month of May.
Speaking of May’s Android security patch, the same carrier is rolling out this update to the LG G4. This, like the Galaxy S6 Edge+, is also from 2015, however, this G4 variant is still running on the older Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow, with the expected Nougat release still unknown. T-Mobile has not specified if this update is indeed for this month, but it has confirmed as to be available from May 15. In addition to carrying the latest monthly security patch, the LG G4 update, which ups the software version to H81120v, brings a fix to the stubborn e911 timer error.
Since the update is also rolling out over the air, it will take some time before all LG G4 units get the notification to download it. Alternatively, you can try force a manual update via Settings>About phone>System updates, steps that should also work for the Galaxy S6 Edge+, if waiting for the notification is a problem.
