Samsung Galaxy S6 and S6 Edge users in Europe and India started receiving the update to Android 7.0 Nougat a few days ago.
So far, the update has been reported in quite a good number of major markets across Europe, with the likes of Germany, the UK, Netherlands, Ireland, and Italy among the mentioned names. Mid this week, the same update also appeared in Turkey, but this time it was rolling out to the phablet Samsung Galaxy Note 5, which was also released in 2015 like the Galaxy S6 and S6 Edge.
Now, in another instance of good news, those using either of Samsung Galaxy S6 or the phablet Galaxy S6 Edge+ in China, which was released together with the Galaxy Note 5, can be sure of receiving the update to Android 7.0 Nougat really soon. This is true because the respective builds carrying the Nougat update for the two phones have been confirmed, with the Galaxy S6 expected to be updated to version G9200ZCU2EQC4 while the Galaxy S6 Edge+ will get version G9280ZCU2CQC4.
Even though not yet available for download, the fact that the Chinese variants of the Galaxy S6 and S6 Edge+ have their builds confirmed means that the official rollout should start happening very soon, perhaps even before the end of this month. We can’t confirm this yet, but the update should also bring the latest Android security patch for the month of March.
As noted earlier, Samsung Galaxy S6, S6 Edge and Galaxy Note 5 had already appeared in Europe with Android 7.0 Nougat running the show. However, this is the first instance we are hearing about a Nougat update for the Galaxy S6 Edge+. The flagships were expected to start receiving the Nougat treat this month and it is indeed happening, but it could take weeks or even a month before all Galaxy S6 and Note 5 units across the globe are updated to the new OS.
