Samsung Galaxy S6 Nougat update draws closer
The Android operating system continues to evolve and develop as the years go by, and today we have news that the Samsung Galaxy S6 Android 7.0 Nougat OS update draws closer to release for end users.
Samsung hasn’t always had a good reputation for pushing out updates to the Android operating system, just ask any owner of the Galaxy S3, but it seems as if the almost two year old Galaxy S6 will be treated to some new software soon.
It is being reported that a Samsung Galaxy S6 sporting Android 7.0 Nougat has passed the Wi-Fi Alliance certification, which will mean that the release of the software has got a step closer. The company recently started the process of updating the Galaxy S7 and S7 Edge with the OS.
The model that passed the Wi-Fi certification was an S6 but the Edge version should receive the updated software at the same time just like the S7 and S7 Edge, but with any Android update when it is officially released it can take a while for it to reach all users as the various networks will have to test the software and add their own add-ons that will also mean owners of unlocked versions often receive it first.
Android 7.0 Nougat comes with a number of upgrades over Marshmallow that includes an improved drop down menu, multi-tasking app interactions, and Vulkan for enhanced gaming power. Users won’t notice much difference visually though but as we have an unlocked version of the S6 in the office we will report as soon as it hits so stay tuned.
