A few days ago, Sprint started rolling out Android 7.0 Nougat to Samsung Galaxy Note 5 users. The carrier later came in with the same treat for the Galaxy S6 and S6 Edge, with AT&T joining the party with an update to the Note 5 and S6 Edge+.
Now, without wasting any time, Verizon Wireless is also rolling out a software update to both Samsung Galaxy Note 5 and Galaxy S6 Edge+. The update is coming in over the air and it brings the latest Android 7.0 Nougat OS to the phablets. The carrier has already updated the official pages for the two phones, confirming that the update is indeed rolling out.
For Samsung Galaxy Note 5 users, the update comes with software version N920VVRU3CQB9 while those on the Galaxy S6 Edge+ can watch out for software version G928VVRU3CQB9. Once you’ve installed the update, you should be able to enjoy a bunch of new Nougat-focused features such as enhanced battery management, split-screen multitasking as well as a new Performance Mode that is meant to improve the performance of your device whenever you wish to.
Since the update is coming over the air, it will be rolling out in stages. As such, it may take time before all Samsung Galaxy Note 5 and S6 Edge+ users on Verizon actually receive the new Nougat treat.
If you are on Sprint’s HTC One M9, there’s also some good news for you as the carrier is rolling out the latest Android 7.0 Nougat to the 2015 flagship. The OS weighs about 1GB and like the Galaxy Note 5 and S6 Edge+, it is coming over the air. Thus, it might take some time before all units are updated to the latest version.
When ready to update the device, make sure your phone has at least 50% battery power and is connected to the internet via Wi-Fi to avoid extra cellular charges.
