According to a tweet from Tansu Yegen, vice-president of the Turkish wing of Samsung, the Android 7.0 Nougat update would be soon available for 2017 and 2016 Samsung smartphones. The tweet dated Feb. 8 states the Galaxy S7 and Galaxy S7 Edge would be getting the software update by the second week of February, Phone Arena reported.
Mr. Yegen's tweet has revealed that the Galaxy S6 would be getting the software upgrade by the end of the third week. The Galaxy S6 Edge+ and Galaxy Note 5 are also going to receive the update by the third week. The Galaxy S6 Edge would be getting the Android 7.0 Nougat by the last week of this month.
The Galaxy A series is poised to get the firmware upgrade in May. The 2017 edition of Galaxy A3, Galaxy A5 and Galaxy S7 were launched preinstalled with Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow update.
