Galaxy S6 Nougat Release Date Might Be Close1 / 6
One of the most exciting things about the Samsung Galaxy S6 Android Nougat update is that its release is getting close. In fact, a release could just be a few short days away.
A recent roadmap released by Samsung Turkey suggests the Galaxy S6 and Galaxy S6 Edge Nougat release could begin in late February with a release for the Galaxy S6 Edge+ possible in March.
The company has since scrubbed the roadmap from its website but it still serves as a sign, a sign that a release should be coming sooner rather than later.
We know Samsung’s been making progress with its Galaxy S6 Nougat testing. The updates have shown up in GFX benchmarks and the update’s also received its Wi-Fi certification from the Wi-Fi Alliance. This was a necessary step ahead of the public release.
Samsung’s promised the Galaxy S6 Nougat update in the first half of 2017 but all signs point to a release long before the conclusion of Q2.
