AT&T's Samsung Galaxy Note 5 and S6 edge+ are now being updated to Android Nougat

Not long after Sprint updated its Samsung Galaxy Note 5 to Android Nougat, AT&T this week started pushing a Nougat update to its own version of the Note 5 (N920A).

According to AT&T's official Galaxy Note 5 support page - see the source link below - the new update brings Android 7.0 Nougat (not 7.1) to the handset, and includes the March security patch. Users are also getting two pre-loaded apps (Samsung Cloud and Samsung Pass), plus improvements related to network performance. Moreover, the update is removing some apps, including AT&T Address Book, AT&T Live, and MobiTV.

The Android 7.0 Nougat update for AT&T's Galaxy Note 5 weighs in at about 1.57 GB. While the update is officially being rolled out starting today, April 11, not everyone will get it right away.

At the moment, it's not clear if the Samsung Galaxy Note 5 will also be updated to Android 7.1 Nougat, but we're going to let you know as soon as we find out.

Update: AT&T's Samsung Galaxy S6 edge+ (model number G928A) is getting its Nougat update as well - see the second source link below.

Samsung is steamrolling its way back from the Note 7 fiasco. Keep pumping out good products, and updates, and it'll soon be forgotten.

Samsung isn't really worried about the die hard techies, that make up a very small demographic. They were heavily marketing the Note 7 to the mainstream consumer, the largest demographic. Those are the ones that found out about the Note 7, on ABC, CBS, MSNBS, and other non tech site outlets. I don't know if you were tying to be a smart ass, or not, but ask Samsung how much they want it totally forgotten.

How cool. Will look forward to getting that. Planning on the Note 8 for now this fall. Poor old 5 is torn and tattered.

Same with Verizon, at least for the Note 5. Downloaded it last night and installed this morning (after letting the phone charge).
