Samsung is close to pulling the plugs on its Android beta program. This could only mean that the official version of Nougat is set to be kicked off to the Samsung Galaxy S7 and S7 Edge. At this point, it isn’t too far-fetched to say that by the end of January, most users would be running on the Android 7.1.1.
But, wait – there’s more. Folks on the Galaxy S6 and S6 Edge can be certain that they wouldn’t need to wait long before welcoming Nougat into their lives.
This is because the former flagship was caught testing Android 7.0 on GFXBench during late November last year. Although the device was initially said to jump over 7.0 and dive straight into 7.1.1, by now the Seoul-based manufacturer should be nearing completion for its Nougat work for the Galaxy S6.
Since the Galaxy S7 will be moving out of the way soon, the Galaxy S6 would be taking the top spot for the next in line for the latest Android update. From here on, it’ll be a straight pathway to Nougat.
Aside that, the Galaxy S7 Active was recently spotted running on Android 7.0 on GFXBench, thus it’s safe to say that it won’t be far behind the regular models in getting Nougat. AT&T users may soon have nothing to complain about.
Seeing that Samsung has been rectifying its ways in terms of software support these past couple of months, when do you think Android 7.1.1 Nougat will arrive to the Galaxy S6?
Early 2016, many folks had a truck load of reasons to whine, in regards to Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow, as they were subjected to a longer wait time to receive the update compared to Galaxy S5 users.
