One of the already “veterans” of Samsung receives the update to Android 7.0 Nougat when the new Samsung Galaxy S8 are about to be presented. Its about Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge Plus, the one that has almost the longest name of all the Korean manufacturer has launched.
Let’s remember that it was the phablet that was launched in Europe instead of the Galaxy Note 5 In a move that left us users from the old continent perplexed since it was necessary to resort to importing from the US to be able to have the model that the S-Pen had. We already know the story with the Note 7 and the Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge Plus, directly, did not exist. That is why whoever opted for the team at the time, at least, has not been forgotten by the brand since as of today, obviously for Europe, the update with Android 7 arrives for its terminals.
Download Android 7 for the Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge Plus
At the moment no OTA, but yes download from official firmware repositories, perhaps because it is expected to surprise with Android 7 in the Samsung Galaxy S8 this afternoon – that we have no doubt that it will be the operating system of the new Samsung terminals – although it remains to be seen if they have TouchWiz, as is the case with this Galaxy S6 Edge Plus even with Android 7 or the Korean company surprises us with a review of its already ancient interface.
With this update, almost all the family of Galaxy S6 is getting Android 7 for a few weeks, as announced both freely and by some operators such as Vodafone. It is possible that in the coming days more operators will join the announcement and we hope that the manual download of the installation file will not have to be used for a long time and soon the company will launch the corresponding Over The Air update.
The novelties of Android 7 are well known with elements such as the Doze system for saving energy, the grouped notifications or the useful shortcuts to the functions of the apps among hundreds of novelties that, on the other hand, are already beginning to be overshadowed for Android or, the next iteration of Google’s operating system … when not even 1% of the terminals have been updated yet.
