Android 7 on S6?

Is the Samsung S6 going to get the android 7 update? Virgin did state that the S6 is reaching its End Of Life stage.

Re: Android 7 on S6?

Yes, the rollout started this week. Samsung are targeting Vodafone versions first for some reason.

You can keep track here for the non Edge version https://www.sammobile.com/firmwares/database/SM-G920f/

And here for the Edge version https://www.sammobile.com/firmwares/database/SM-G925f/

@BenMcr That's for the S7. Updates for the S6 have not started yet. 

Knowing Samsung's last roll out it could be some time.

Re: Android 7 on S6?

It's definitely for the S6 and S6 Edge. Here's a link confirming it http://www.androidpolice.com/2017/03/09/galaxy-s6-and-s6-edge-nougat-updates-start-appearing-in-euro...

The S7 model numbers are SM-G930F and SM-G935F, and the rollout for those phone started a couple of weeks ago.

Sorry about that - suspect Virgin will be the last.

Although it looks like there is a 6.0.1 security update coming first before the 7 update.
