Samsung Galaxy S6 and S6 Edge update to Android 7.0 Nougat is now rolling out in select markets across Europe, with the rest of the continent, and globe in general, expected to follow suit really soon.
So far, the standard Samsung Galaxy S6 is receiving the update with firmware version G920FXXU5EQBG while the Galaxy S6 Edge has firmware version G925FXXU5EQBG. Both updates are quite heavy, weighing in at about 1.4GB, which is not a surprise given that the two OTA updates are coming in with a new Android 7.0 Nougat OS.
The OS started rolling out to Samsung Galaxy S7 and S7 Edge users in January and so far, it seems the tech giant is done with availing the OS for the 2016 flagships. As expected, attention has now shifted to the 2015 Samsung Galaxy S6 and S6 Edge, but this is only happening in the UK, Ireland, Netherlands, Italy, Romania and Switzerland, Germany, Greece, among other European markets.
In fact, it is only those using Vodafone in the aforementioned markets or Swisscom in Switzerland that can update their Samsung Galaxy S6 and S6 Edge devices to the latest Android 7.0 Nougat. As for the rest of the continent, it shouldn’t be long before the OTA update starts coming in.
Just like any other OTA update, this one will take time before hitting all Samsung Galaxy S6 and S6 Edge units in the region. But if you can’t wait for what might take days or even weeks before coming your way, there’s a shorter and quicker way of getting the OS installed on your phone. All you need is to get the firmware and manually flash it on your phone.
So far, the firmware for Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge is ready for download, but only for those using the device with model number SM-G925F. As for those using the Galaxy S6, you will have to be patient for a little longer, but you can keep checking here for updates on the availability of the firmware.
