Samsung Galaxy S6 Nougat Update Insults S7 Users

Share

Software version number 4.27.651.4 is being rolled out by Sprint for the HTC One M9.

All four devices are now in the process of receiving updates to Android 7.0 Nougat, following in the footsteps of AT&T's Note5, for which the rollout commenced yesterday.

To check your Note 5 or S6 edge+ for updates, go into Settings About phone Software update Check for updates.

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. In fact, some of them felt like Samsung has insulted them by making them wait for the Nougat update despite the fact that the S7 is newer than the S6 and Note 5. Screenshots detail a jump to Android 7.0 and the February security patch. As of this time, none of the devices in Samsung's huge catalog is running Android 7.1 just yet - this discovery could mean that the Korean phone maker is hard at work at testing a new build for the newest Nougat. 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. The Galaxy Note 5's new build number is NRD90M.N920VVRU3CQB9, while Galaxy S6 Edge+ device owners heading to the About Device wing of their settings menu will find build number NRD90M.G928VVRU3CQB9. The update is coming in over the air and it brings the latest Android 7.0 Nougat OS to the phablets. Verizon's releases about the two updates don't mention anything about a gradual rolling out, so if you don't see it, a reboot might do the trick. Be patient and before you know it, you will be enjoying the new features that come with the update. AT&T also notes that the updates will remove the AT&T Address Book, MobiTV, and AT&T Live apps.
