Samsung Electronics Vice President for Turkey recently took to Twitter to share the Android Nougat update roadmap for the said country. The said documentation reveals that the 2015 Samsung flagships are bound to get the update this month. Apparently, since the Galaxy S7 and S7 Edge have already gone first in getting the Nougat update, their predecessors are bound to go next.
Android Nougat For Galaxy S6 Series And Galaxy Note 5
It was said that the Galaxy S6, Galaxy S6 Edge+ and the Galaxy Note 5 will all get the update third week of February. The Galaxy S6 Edge, on the other hand, will get the update at the end of the month. If things go as planned, the Android Nougat update will roll out to the Galaxy A series in May. The Galaxy J series will then follow in July. So far things look good for Samsung Turkey's roadmap and as per Sam Mobile, there's still no reason to doubt the reliability of the said plan.
Samsung Android Nougat Rollout To More Areas
Needless to say, as per GSM Arena, these Android Nougat update timeframes are only applicable in Turkey. With that, there is still no certainty as to when the update is rolling out to other countries. Nevertheless, Samsung usually keeps things in sync for larger areas so there's good chance that the Nougat update for the Galaxy S6 series and Galaxy Note 5 will start invading Europe in a span of a few weeks.
Mobile OS Update To Android Phones
The Android Nougat was released in August of last year but it took a while before phones started receiving its rollout. It's worth noting that being Google-owned, Android's latest updates usually get to Google phones first before it reaches other phone brands. This is why Nexus phones started receiving the updates far earlier than other Android phones. The delay in rollout for non-Google phones is practically a combination of late delivery to smartphone companies and the amount of time these companies need to perform tests.
