Samsung has already secured the latest Android 7.0 Nougat software for the flagship devices – Galaxy S7 and S7 Edge. With the previous year flagships now in line for the update, the company has already highlighted some key features of the Galaxy S6 and S6 Edge Nougat update.

The South-Korean tech company has released Nougat update manual for the older flagship devices, and the pictures depict a UI similar to Galaxy S7 and S7 Edge. Features like the Grace UX and a new camera interface will be some of the key features brought in by Samsung, along with the Pop-up View mode and a refreshing design for the status bar.

However, features like motion panorama, Wide self-portrait with motion, Performance Mode, Video Enhancer and other camera modes will not be ported to Galaxy S6 and S6 Edge. Even the revered Always On Display mode will remain exclusive to the Galaxy S7 and S7 Edge devices.
