Android 7.0 Nougat Changelog for Galaxy S6, S6 Edge
The Nougat update for the Galaxy S6 and S6 Edge had been pending for a long time. Samsung’s last year’s flagship – the Galaxy S7 and S7 Edge have already got it a few months ago. Even the older Galaxy Note 5 started to receive the Nougat update some days ago.

The latest update brings storage management enhancements to Samsung’s old flagships. This means downloaded application will now be stored more efficiently. System upgrade speed and app installation timing have received major improvements. The overall system performance is upgraded too.
Similar to the Galaxy S7 and S7 Edge, you will get a new blue light filter as well as a high-performance mode on your S6 or S6 Edge. Apart from all these, the brand new update also includes the March 2017 Android Security Patch.
The Android 7.0 Update features the build number of G920IDVU3FQD1 on the Galaxy S6 and G925IDVU3FQD1 in the Galaxy S6 Edge. The former weighs at 1235.04 MB, whereas the latter sports a size of 1247.36 MB.
