Verizon Samsung Galaxy S6 and Galaxy S6 Edge users now getting Android Nougat
Android Nougat continues to make its way across devices eight months after its release, and today it’s finally time for some Samsung Galaxy S6 and S6 Edge users to get up to date. Namely, those of you on Verizon’s network.
Big Red has just published changelogs for both devices, announcing their upgrade to Android 7.0 Nougat. This brings the Samsung Galaxy S6 and S6 Edge to software versions NRD90M.G920VVRS4DQD1 and NRD90M.G925VVRS4DQD1, respectively.
We don’t know the file sizes, but do advise that you expect a heavy download and be prepared with a Wi-Fi connection, as well as plenty of juice for the phone to survive the update.
