Galaxy S6 Nougat update manual reveals key details

Samsung has already released the Android 7.0 Nougat update for the Galaxy S7 and the Galaxy S7 edge. We told you a few weeks back that it’s now preparing said update for the Galaxy S6 and the Galaxy S6 edge. The Galaxy S6 Nougat update manual has appeared online and it reveals some key details about the update.

The screenshots in this manual show that Nougat on the Galaxy S6 is going to look more or less the same like it does on the Galaxy S7. Users will get the Grace UX that was introduced with the Galaxy Note 7 first last year along with all of the features that are part and parcel of Nougat. A new camera interface that’s gesture-friendly is included and so is the new Pop-up View mode and a redesigned status bar with stackable notifications.

The Galaxy S6 Nougat update manual also reveals that some features will remain exclusive to the Galaxy S7 and the Galaxy S7 edge such as the motion panorama feature called Wide self-portrait with motion, Video Enhancer, Performance Mode, camera modes like Food, Selfie flash, and Hyperlapse as well as the Always On Display.

Samsung is yet to confirm precisely when it’s going to release Android 7.0 Nougat for the Galaxy S6 and the Galaxy S6 edge.

We want all features of S7 edge in s6 edge AOD, new camera UI and all others…. After all we’ve spent a bomb of money when we bought S6 edge.

Good news, but camera mods like Food is already present on my sgs6 edge plus, so why take it away. Still hope that the option to change screen resolution will be present. AOD would be nice but I guess the battery is to small like reported here on sammobile.

Nvm I found in the manuel that changing screen resolution is present so is blue light filter. There is a option for performance mode too, but no idea if it’s like on the s7.

They have to Update Note 5 and S6 edge plus before s6 edge and S6..

They don’t have to at all. Samsung can update whatever phone they like in whatever order they choose

What good is buying the latest model if you do not get the latest update first?!
You think its acceptable for Samsung to work on the S5 before the S6s then? I think there are many S5s not even on Marshmallow. Samsung should prioritise them then? No, I don’t think that is right at all. the S6 edge+ still remains to be the most expensive Samsung phone to date and therefore I expect them to make it a priority for those customers who paid that premium

Samsung should update Galaxy s6 and S6 edge because this models are older than Note 5 and Galaxy S6 edge plus, anyway they had Marshmallow after Galaxy s6/edge, why Samsung change that order?

when for note 5 is more recent than the S6!!!

First of all, your comment doesn’t make much sense. Secondly, Samsung released S6 BEFORE Note 5. So now that Samsung has updated S7/Edge, their current flagship, they will update the S6/Edge, their former flagship, next. And THEN Note 5. That IS how it works
