Galaxy S6 Nougat Release Date Might Be Close

One of the most exciting things about the Samsung Galaxy S6 Android Nougat update is that its release is getting close. In fact, a release could land sometime in March.

A roadmap released by Samsung Turkey suggested the Galaxy S6 and Galaxy S6 Edge Nougat release would begin in late February. The roadmap also suggested the company would try and release the Galaxy S6 Edge+ Nougat update in March.

The timing was off for the Galaxy S6 and Galaxy S6 Edge (Samsung UK recently confirmed a delay) but the fact that the company wanted to push these Nougat updates out in February suggests its trying to get these updates out sooner rather than later.

We know Samsung's been making progress with its Galaxy S6 Nougat testing. The updates have shown up in GFX benchmarks and the update's also received its Wi-Fi certification from the Wi-Fi Alliance, a necessary step ahead of the public release. 

Samsung's promised the Galaxy S6 Nougat update in the first half of 2017 but all signs point to a release long before the conclusion of Q2 in June.
