After rolling out Nougat update for its flagships – the Galaxy S7 and S7 edge, Samsung is now gearing up to roll it out for the other Galaxy flagships. Samsung’s vice-president, Tansu Yegen recently tweeted some info about the release of Nougat update for Galaxy S6, S6 edge, S6 edge+, Galaxy Note 5, Galaxy A 2016, and Galaxy J.
Even though the tweet got deleted eventually, but folks at XDA Developers forum managed to get a screenshot (above) before it vanished from Twitter. Yegen made the tweet in the Turkish language, but it revealed the expected timeline for these devices to get the taste of Nougat. As per the tweet, the Galaxy S6 and S6 edge will most likely get the update by the end of this month. Big manufacturers like Samsung are on an update spree for their flagship devices, it is not surprising to see that Nougat is being made available after five months of getting released by Google.
As per the tweet, the Galaxy Note 5, Galaxy S6, and Galaxy S6 edge+ will get Nougat by the third week of February. The Galaxy S6 Edge will receive the update by the last week while the other Galaxy S and Galaxy J (models not specified) will receive it sometime in May and July.
Admittedly, Samsung’s Nougat update for Galaxy S7 lineup did not go smooth in regions such as China, which means that the company now has the first-hand experience of handling the shortcomings. We hope that Nougat update for rest of the Samsung devices mentioned in the tweet goes smoothly. Although Samsung itself has not made an official announcement about the timeline, but we hope to hear from the company soon.
