  • Sprint Galaxy S6, Galaxy S6 Edge Receiving Nougat Update

The new software is on its way, however.

All of a sudden, it's raining sweet Nougat updates for past-generation Samsung flagship phones across major U.S. carriers, from Sprint to AT&T, Verizon and Sprint again.

You can manually check for the update by going to Settings " About phone and manually check for the update.

All of the features that you've come to expect from Android 7.0 Nougat can be found on board, including but not limited to the user interface tweaks, multi-window view, customizable quick settings menu, an improved notifications experience, and more. I mean, gosh, Nougat might even hit 7% by next month.

AT&T has announced that it's updating its Samsung Galaxy Note 5 and Galaxy S6 edge+ to Android 7.0. The operating system update has run into issues, but the fallout does seem to be limited to those who are contracted to USA wireless carrier Verizon.

When ready to update the device, make sure your phone has at least 50% battery power and is connected to the internet via Wi-Fi to avoid extra cellular charges.

According to users, Galaxy S6 owners should have an eye out for build G920PVPU4DQC7, while S6 Edge owners will want G925PVPU4DQC7. This update weighs in at 1.02 GB and also brings along the Android Security Patch for February 2017.

Keep the updates coming, Samsung.

If you're looking for a carrier to avoid as far as future updates are concerned, you might consider steering clear of AT&T.
