Android Nougat development For Galaxy S6/S6 Edge has begun

Samsung logoLast we checked, Samsung had begun their Android 7.0 Nougat beta program for the Galaxy S7 and S7 Edge. Given that the Note 7 is no longer in play, it means that Samsung’s flagship phones for 2016 are the S7 and S7 Edge, so it makes sense that they would be focusing their efforts on those phones.

So what does that mean for older devices? Is Samsung not planning on showing them love? The good news is that Samsung will not be leaving everyone behind. According to a report from SamMobile, it seems that the Nougat firmware update for the Galaxy S6 and S6 Edge has already begun.

Android Nougat development For Galaxy S6/S6 Edge has begun

We’re not sure how far along the development is, but given that Nougat has yet to make its way to devices like the S7 and S7 Edge, there’s a good chance that we’ll probably only see the update in 2017, but that’s better than nothing, right? There was no mention of the Galaxy Note 5, but presumably if the S6 and S6 Edge were to get the update, so would the Note 5 and it’s really just a question of when.

We’re also unclear if there will be a beta program similar to what Samsung is doing right now for the S7 and S7 Edge, but we wouldn’t be surprised if there was. We’ll be keeping an eye out for it all the same.
