Galaxy S6 with Android 7.0 Nougat update build pops up on GFXBench
Shortly after Samsung issued a pre-release Android 7.0 Nougat beta update for owners of the Galaxy S7 and S7 Edge who want to try the new goodies, we learned that the company has apparently begun developing a Nougat update for last year's Galaxy S6 and S6 edge

Quickly enough, one Galaxy S6 running Android 7.0 has already appeared in the GFXBench database, possibly indicating that the testing period is under way and, after Samsung outs the OTA Nougat update for the S7 bunch, it will do so for the S6 as well. 

Since these are probably very early builds, there is no way to probe what will go into the final Nougat software for the S6, but we hope that it will have as much of the new Samsung UX we are seeing in the beta as possible.
