Samsung Galaxy S6 running Nougat receives Wi-Fi certification

23 January 2017 2

A couple of days ago, Samsung officially announced Android Nougat release for the last year flagships Galaxy S7 and S7 Edge. Not just that, the company also confirms the devices which will be receiving Android Nougat update during the first half of 2017. The list does include the devices of Galaxy S6 series, Note 5 and the Tab S2 series.

We already have seen the Galaxy S6 appeared online running on Android nougat but today what we have got indicates Galaxy S6 clears another hurdle ahead of Nougat 7.0 roll out. The Galaxy S6 running on Nougat receives Wi-Fi certification. However, at the moment, the certification is for the SM-G920 but we can expect soon the Galaxy S6 Edge variant will also receive this certification.

Samsung didn’t mention Q1 for the Nougat roll out but instead the company mentioned first half of 2017 which means it will take at least few more weeks to start rolling out Nougat for the older flagships, however, the Galaxy S6 series could be next in line. The company yet to confirm when the official roll out of Nougat for the S6 series will kick off, till then GS6 lineup users will have to stick with Android Marshmallow. We will be keeping a close eye on the matter to make sure our Galaxy S6 lineup owners can be notified about the update.

Is the S6 running on Nougat or is it still waiting for the update. The title says it's running and the story says "ahead of Nougat 7.0 roll out". So, it's a bit confusing.
