Samsung is nearly done with the Galaxy S7 Nougat update, or one for the Galaxy S7 Edge, but its 2016 flagship devices ares till thirsty for the big and bold Android 7.0 upgrade. And Galaxy S6 Edge Plus is no exception, while the update is yet to start rolling out for its more famous cousins in Galaxy S6 and Galaxy S6 Edge.
Well, some good news then. Various variants of the Galaxy S6 Edge Plus today received certification from the Wi-Fi Alliance authority for the Android 7.0 Nougat update, and that includes sets at AT&T, T-Mobile, Sprint, US Cellular and Verizon in USA, and the one in Canada.
With the completion of the certification process for the following models: SM-G928T, SM-G928A, SM-G928R4, SM-G928V, SM-G928P, SM-G928W8, the update process is guaranteed to start sooner rather than later.
The international variant, SM-G928F/C/I should be receiving the update prior to the variant in USA and Canada, as is the norm with Samsung updates.
While Samsung could argue that it was not able to update the device owing to the locked nature of the device, the fact that even the unlocked variant did not receive the Nougat update so far is disheartening indeed.
