T-Mobile’s Samsung Galaxy S6, S6 Edge and LG Stylo 2 Plus Testing Android 7.0 Nougat ahead of Release

A few weeks ago, T-Mobile started rolling out Android 7.0 Nougat OTA update to Samsung Galaxy Note 5 and later on Galaxy S6 Edge+.

Well, it’s about time the same treat started rolling out to the smaller Samsung Galaxy S6 and S6 Edge, but it appears that those using any of these two phones will have to wait a little while longer before the OS actually starts hitting their devices.

A quick look at T-Mobile’s official website will reveal that both Samsung Galaxy S6 and the curved Galaxy S6 Edge are currently being tested for Android 7.0 Nougat. The fact that T-Mobile has started testing the OS on these 2015 handsets is enough to confirm that the official rollout of the OS won’t take long before it begins.

Immediately T-Mobile started the Nougat treat for the Galaxy S6 Edge+, many were adamant that the standard S6 and its smaller counterpart S6 Edge would be joining the party sooner than later. Well, don’t be surprised if this OS starts hitting these S6 units in the coming weeks, probably before the end of this month. However, this will depend on how smooth the testing phase runs.

Galaxy S6 and S6 Edge

T-Mobile’s models will now be joining other carrier and unlocked models of the Galaxy S6 and S6 Edge in receiving the Nougat treat, which comes more than eight month since the first phones – Google Nexus 6P and Nexus 5X – started receiving the OS over the air.

Similar to the Galaxy S6 and S6 Edge, T-Mobile is also testing the same OS on the LG Stylo 2 Plus handset. This phone was released in July 2016 and so far, it is still based on Android Marshmallow. Similar to the Galaxy S6 duo, the Stylo 2 Plus should also start receiving the Nougat treat in the coming weeks once the OS has been certified for use on the device.
