Android 7.0 Nougat Starts Rolling out to Samsung Galaxy S6 and S6 Edge in India, Just After Release in Europe
India’s has become a vital market for many smartphone OEMs and it is no wonder the likes of Apple are also looking for a stake in the largest developing market.
Recently, we’ve seen major software updates for Android devices reaching the Indian market well ahead of other recognized markets such as the U.S. Apparently, this is not coming to an end anytime soon as both Samsung Galaxy S6 and S6 Edge handsets in the region have started receiving the new Android 7.0 Nougat OS, just after it started rolling out in Europe.
The likes of Germany, the UK, Netherlands, Italy, Ireland and many other European markets started receiving the update to Android 7.0 Nougat on Samsung Galaxy S6 and S6 Edge towards the end of last week. Before the OS touches American soil, it is already rolling out in India.
Like Europe, Samsung Galaxy S6 and S6 Edge users in India will be receiving a Nougat OTA update that weighs about 1.4GB and it should also bring with it the latest Android security patch. The notification will not hit all S6 and S6 Edge handsets at once, rather, the process is gradual, which means it could take a week or so before some users are notified to download and install the update.
You can also perform a manual update by going to Settings>About phone>System updates>Check for updates. This path should give you direct access to the Nougat files, which can then be downloaded and installed manually on your phone. Make sure that you are connected to the internet via Wi-Fi and the battery power is at least 50% before proceeding with the upgrade process.
