Samsung is not yet done with rolling out Android 7.0 Nougat update to the Galaxy S7 and S7 Edge, but the company is already working on releasing the same OS to the 2015 Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge+ phablet.
Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge+ was launched in 2015 alongside the Galaxy Note 5 and now that Samsung has already made the new Android 7.0 Nougat update to the 2016 flagships, it is these two that are expected to be up next. The fact that the Wi-Fi Alliance has certified a Galaxy S6 Edge+ model with the new Nougat OS on board is enough to confirm that this update is currently being tested and should be released very soon.
Despite the fact that Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge+ has appeared at the Wi-Fi Alliance with Android 7.0 Nougat running the show, it doesn’t mean that Samsung has announced the coming of the update. Rather, this simply gives us a hint of when to expect the release of the OS for this device. The variant listed on the WFA has model number SM-G928A, which confirms that this is an AT&T model.
About a week ago, the Wi-Fi Alliance also listed a Samsung Galaxy Note 5 with model number SM-N9200 and similar to the Galaxy S6 Edge+, this variant had Android 7.0 Nougat running the show. This also means that the phone is not far away from receiving the update and it could be joined by the S6 Edge+.
Samsung has not yet made the new Android 7.0 Nougat update to any of its devices apart from the Galaxy S7 and S7 Edge, but it is now obvious that things should start changing very soon. After the Galaxy S6 Edge+ and Galaxy Note 5, we also expect to see the same OS rolling out to Samsung Galaxy S6 and S6 Edge as well, among other midrange phones released in the recent past.
