Galaxy S6 edge Nougat update appears to be rolling out

Galaxy S6 owners have been waiting to receive the Android 7.0 Nougat update for quite some time now. It was reported recently that the update would be released for this device by the end of February. We reported week that Samsung had delayed the Galaxy S6 Nougat release to review its quality, the company said that it would make the update available at the earliest possible opportunity after it was done with the review. We’re now receiving reports that Samsung has started rolling out Nougat for the Galaxy S6 edge.

We’ve received tips from our readers which suggest that the Galaxy S6 edge Nougat update is now being rolled out, one reader told us that the update has been rolled out by Vodafone in the United Kingdom. Firmware version G925FXXU5EQBG has been released for this handset. We’re also seeing reports online of the update being released for both the Galaxy S6 and the Galaxy S6 edge in Switzerland, Germany and Italy.

The rollout may just be limited to Europe at this point in time so we’ll have to wait and see when it goes live in other markets across the globe. Have you received Nougat on your Galaxy S6 or Galaxy S6 edge? Let us know in the comments below.


Thanks, Vincent!

April now and still nothing from the Three network in UK, Samsung say they have released it, conflicting info from Three, one support person said it was being tested by Three and another said it had not been released to them yet?

This update has totally screwed my S6 Edge, as soon as it rebooted it asked for my startup password and does not recognise it. Thanks Samsung I have photos of my mother who just passed away that I can no longer access. It was not clearly shown that this was a major update. Total junk

I am still waiting, I have unlocked s6 using three, I asked three about update, they said ask Samsung so I did, they said ask three as it was down to them, could not get a straight answer from either, three or Samsung, these people are useless, just wanted an answer, I did recive February Security patch in the second week of March, makes me laught slower than a snail.

Samsung releases update, but carriers modify them, and then release them. So, it is not Samsung to blame :)

I am carrying a Galaxy s6 edge unlocked and using it on a Japanese network right now, and no, i didn’t get any update. Since it isn’t related to any particular provider, when the 7.0 update will pop up for unlocked global versions?
