Page content:

Update [October 14, 2016]: Verizon has started rolling out the 6.0.1 based PG2 update for its Note Edge users. The update’s full build is N915VVRU2CPG2 and it brings the latest security patch, as per Verizon. We think that’s October patch they are talking about, but we won’t be surprised if it’s September one, because a month’s delay is often seen.

Update [September 30, 2016]: AT&T also released a security patch update with build N915AUCS2DPH7, and as you would have guessed, there is nothing else part of the update here. The AT&T Note Edge PH7 update is sized 29.76 MB, and is based on 6.0.1 of of course, while there will be no Nougat update for the device from AT&T.

[September 22, 2016]: Sprint has released a new Android 6.0.1 based update for its Note Edge, that is identifed by its software version N915PVPS4DPH3. The PH3 update brings in Google’s monthly security patches until September, which means all the latest ones are included, but that’s all about the changelog, as nothing else seems to be the part of the update.

The astounding success of Galaxy Note 7 — explosive batteries fiasco aside — has its first roots in the launch of Galaxy Note Edge, the first Samsung device to feature a curvy display. But the Note Edge is now quite an old device, one that’s beyond two years old, or almost. So, its Nougat chances are pretty slim, but read more below to find how it could still snatch one.

And then there are carrier variants of the Galaxy Note Edge too, for which the hopes of even the unofficial Nougat update are only more slimmer.

Galaxy Note Edge Nougat update: No official support anymore!

This year, the Note 4 and Note Edge complete 2 years. Well, usually birthdays are worth celebrating, but not in the case of electronics, which only means that the device’s support is wearing out, in not the device itself altogether.

The Note Edge users will have to face the hard truth, too, after all. Samsung would no longer provide Android version upgrades to the Note Edge, so, there are no chances of an official Android 7.0 Nougat update coming to Note Edge sets around the world.

So, that’s the only way Note Edge could score the Nougat update. This will be an unofficial update, one that will require TWRP recovery installed on your device.
