Android 7.0 Nougat for Samsung Galaxy S6 and S6 edge goes live at Sprint

It looks like Android 7.0 Nougat rollout is in full swing in the United States, as carriers like Sprint, Verizon, and AT&T have already pushed the update to a couple of Samsung smartphones.

As per our previous report, Sprint was the first US operator to deploy the Android 7.0 Nougat to the Samsung Galaxy Note 5 and Galaxy S6 edge+. Today, the carrier added two new devices to the list of smartphones that are eligible for the Android 7.0 Nougat update: Samsung Galaxy S6 and S6 edge.

In case you own Sprint's Galaxy S6, you'll want to look for firmware version G920PVPU4DQC7, whereas the S6+ model should be getting the new update with build number G925PVPU4DQC7.

If you get notified that Android 7.0 Nougat is available for download, then make sure that you have enough storage space on your phone, as the update weighs is at 1.1GB.

Besides the usual Android Nougat new features and improvements, Samsung added a new UX and various performance modes, as well as enhanced usability of the Notification feature and Quick settings button. Similar improvements have been made to the Multi window feature and setting menu.

The rollout has just begun over the weekend, so it might take a couple of days for the update to propagate to all Galaxy S6 and S6 edge devices.
