After the official release of Android 7.0 Nougat for Galaxy S7 and S7 Edge, Samsung has already unveiled the list of devices who will be receiving the latest software update. As the first half of the year begins, the company is already moving full speed ahead with Galaxy S6 Edge+ Nougat testing.

While the Galaxy S6 and S6 Edge have already been reported on the GFXBench running Android 7.0, Samsung is just beginning to test the update for the phablet from last year. Bearing the model number SM-G928 and Android 7.0 Nougat on board, the Galaxy S6 Edge+ has also been spotted on the benchmarking website.

DID YOU KNOW: Updato offers seamless and guaranteed phone unlocking for any device, carrier and region! It's quick and easy - try it now.

However, as we have seen in the past, the Galaxy S6 Edge+ will be updated only after the two flagship devices from last year get Nougat.

Galaxy S6 Nougat gets Wi-Fi Certification

Weeks after being spotted running Nougat for benchmarking, the Galaxy S6 has now been pushed forward for certification from the Wi-Fi Alliance. While only the Galaxy S6 model SM-G920 has been certified, for now, its Edge counterpart is expected to swiftly follow.

here in between weeks to months until the public release of Nougat for Galaxy S6 and S6 Edge is ready. Since the South-Korean giant has not put an official date forward, the only assurance that users have for now is that their devices are next in line to receive the goodness of Android 7.0 Nougat.
