Everyone likes to be on the cutting edge of technology, there are no two ways about it. When it comes to smartphones, there is always the shadow of obsolescence hanging right behind each device, growing bigger and getting closer as said device in question begins to age with time. This would often mean having to install the latest system updates in order to obtain the maximum benefits that such software is able to offer, and when the time comes, to go ahead with a hardware upgrade as well in order to remain ahead of the competition, or at least, neck-to-neck with the newest updates. The Samsung Galaxy S6 and Galaxy S6 edge are two such flagship smartphones from 2015, and over in India, these two handsets have begun to receive the long awaited Android 7.0 Nougat update.
The current Samsung Galaxy S7 and Galaxy S7 edge smartphones have already picked up the Android 7.0 Nougat update, which is to be expected. After all, it would be unthinkable if the 2016 flagship smartphones were to be left behind in the update race compared to the 2015 flagships from the South Korean conglomerate, would it?
Owners of the Samsung Galaxy S7 and Galaxy S7 edge over in India have already managed to taste the sweetness of the Android 7.0 Nougat update. This meant that the very same operating system update is well on its way for the Samsung Galaxy S6 and Galaxy S6 edge in the world’s most populous democracy, having passed the Wi-Fi Alliance certification with flying colors when January 2017 came to a close. Apart from that, another leak in the form of the Samsung Galaxy S6 Android 7.0 Nougat update manual also left a tell tale sign, providing the masses with a glimpse as what to expect in the months to come.
Folks in Europe were the first to enjoy the Android 7.0 Nougat update for the Samsung Galaxy S6 and S6 edge just a few days back, and now the update has crossed is way into Asia, at least in one country. This ought to be a good sign that the other countries in Asia, too, as well as various regions throughout the world that have considerable Galaxy S6 and Galaxy S6 edge owners, will be on the receiving end of the Android 7.0 Nougat update in due time.
With the Android 7.0 Nougat update running on the Samsung Galaxy S6 and Galaxy S6 edge, you will find a slew of new features hit the respective smartphones in order to prolong their shelf life, at least in your pocket. There is no guarantee that the Android 8.0 Oreo update is going to make it to the Galaxy S6 and/or Galaxy S6 edge though, so we will simply have to adopt a wait and see attitude. Meanwhile, those who have already updated their 2015 flagship smartphones from Samsung will be able to enjoy Grace UX, a brand new gesture-friendly camera interface, in addition to a redesigned status bar that has stackable notifications, as well as the Pop-up View mode.
