Samsung is testing a Nougat update for the Galaxy S6 edge+


Those still holding onto their Galaxy S6, S6 edge, or S6 edge+ have no reason to worry about Nougat updates. Samsung has already confirmed they will receive Nougat updates in the first half of 2017, and now all three have shown up in benchmark results running test Nougat builds. The Galaxy S6 edge+ was the last to make an appearance there, but it has happened and it's a very good indication that that the jumbo-sized Galaxy S6 edge is getting Android 7.0.

Samsung's version of Android Nougat contains fairly extensive updates. Among them are a redesigned Quick Panel with integrated S Finder, pop-up and split screen windows, a newly added Performance mode with four types of optimizations for entertainment and battery life, and the Samsung Pass login manager.

Other aging devices scheduled to receive Nougat updates within the first half of 2017 include the Galaxy Note5, the Galaxy Tab A with S Pen, the Galaxy Tab S2 (LTE unlock), the Galaxy A3, and the Galaxy A8.
