Galaxy S6 edge running Android 7.0 Nougat [Pictures]

We reported an hour back that Samsung has now finally started rolling out the Android 7.0 Nougat update for the Galaxy S6 and the Galaxy S6 edge. We’ve received reports from multiple markets across Europe where said update has been released by Vodafone for both 2016 flagships. This is a big update so it brings a plethora of changes for the handsets.

Once you’ve downloaded and installed the 1.3GB update on your handset, you’ll immediately notice the new user interface called Samsung Experience. It’s simpler and cleaner that what you’ve become used to and it feels very fast and intuitive. The softer colors and rounded icons are easier on the eyes, the notification shade is easier to comprehend and all toggle icons in the shade light up in the blue “active” color when enabled.

This update also brings Samsung Cloud. It’s a cloud storage service that provides users with a backup and restoration option. It backs up native apps like Contacts, Notes and Calendar and even some third-party apps. All users get 15GB of cloud storage free. The Galaxy S6 and Galaxy S6 edge Android 7.0 Nougat update comes bearing the February security patch.

It’s now being rolled out gradually and will soon be released in other markets as well. Check out the screenshots posted below to see how Nougat looks on the Galaxy S6 edge.

The Exynos 7420 does not support Vulkan api and has a hardware limitation for AOD

That is bullshit. The Exynos 7420 has a Mali-T760 GPU. It supports Vulkan API. Get your fact straight or don’t reply at all.

Any news when this will hit users in The States? Have S6 Edge Plus and really tired of waiting for this update. See it’s moving itself west across Europe.

I have the S6 edge+ in Europe and there isn’t any variant that has the update. Samsung aren’t saying anything about its progress either.

Here in South America it’s expected to arrive along with the march security patch around the 20th of this month. That’s what a Samsung Live Chat assistant told me one week ago… Hope it helps!

Yeah Samsung used to be like this and use those cheap tricks where they never updated the ui for older devices.

Glad they’ve changed strategy since the s6 Atleast
