T-Mobile starts rolling out Android 7.0 Nougat to Samsung Galaxy S6 edge+


Samsung Galaxy S6 edge+ is finally getting the promised Android 7.0 Nougat update after a three weeks delay at T-Mobile. The Uncarrier announced in late April that its engineers have already approved the Galaxy S6 edge+ Nougat build and that the update should go live in early May.

Well, if you own the T-Mobile Galaxy S6 edge+, then you already know that for whatever reasons that didn't happen. The good news is T-Mobile has just updated the phone's support page to confirm the Android 7.0 Nougat update has been approved to launch and is now available for download.

Unfortunately, there aren't any details available concerning the update, so there's no telling what other improvements, besides the ones in Android 7.0 Nougat, it brings. There's a high chance that Samsung Galaxy S6 edge+ owners will also get the April security patch, but we wouldn't be surprised if T-Mobile managed to include a newer version.

If you're anxious to upgrade to Android 7.0 Nougat as soon as possible, then you should be looking for the new software version G928TUVU4EQC6. You might want to head to Settings / About Devices / System updates, and try and manually capture it.

"after a three weeks delay at T-Mobile" This is why getting my handset unlocked and carrier-free is a must for me. Lazy carriers aren't getting away with it from me.

Lazy carriers? Have you considered they're need to test each release?
