Verizon starts seeding Android 7.0 Nougat for Samsung Galaxy S6 and S6 edge
Verizon is the next carrier in the United States to provide the long-awaited Android 7.0 Nougat update for the Samsung Galaxy S6 and S6 edge owners. Although the Big Red has yet to make it official, some users have already captured the update on their phones.

Until Verizon won't release the proper documentation for this update, we can't confirm what security patch the update contains. The good news is the Android 7.0 Nougat update does include “security updates,” it's just we don't know yet if it's the March or April patch.

According to the official changelog, the update also contains a new battery management, among other improvements. The size of the Nougat update for the Galaxy S6 and S6 edge hasn't been revealed yet, but it's likely to weigh in at more than 1GB.

Since the rollout hasn't been mentioned on Verizon's support page, it's likely that the carrier has just started seeding the update to the two smartphones, so it might take a couple of days until Android 7.0 Nougat will propagate to more devices.

On a side note, the other S6 series phone, the Galaxy S6 edge+ has already received the Android 7.0 Nougat update about two weeks ago.

Should've said "the American S7 variants". Or is it the "US Snapdragon variants".

serious question here guys, why do carriers have to be the one seeding the update to the phones. shouldn't it be samsung? and why is it not possible to update all phones like apple does, usually when theres an update it goes back up to 5 generations or something. why can't samsung and other companies do something like this?
