Do you happen to own the Samsung Galaxy S6 edge+ and are residing in Europe? Those who have answered in the affirmative would surely have looked forward to this day when the Android 7.0 Nougat update has finally made its way, long after the Samsung Galaxy S6 and Galaxy S6 edge picked up the very same Android 7.0 Nougat update. This particular update will carry the software build number G928FXXU3CQC2, so be sure to double check before proceeding with its installation in order to avoid any possible complications that might arise from a rogue software build.

What does the Android 7.0 Nougat update for the Galaxy S6 edge+ entail? For starters, everything basic found in Android 7.0 Nougat will be there. This includes the likes of split-screen multitasking capability, customizable quick settings for easy access, an improved Google keyboard, enhanced notifications as well as a recent applications window. To make sure that things are more secure as you use the smartphone, the update will also be accompanied by the March Android Security patch that will include its fair share of bug fixes.

Do take note that the Android 7.0 Nougat update will be relatively large in size, so it makes perfect sense to perform a download of it over a Wi-Fi network. After all, you would not want to have a hefty chunk of your mobile data quota taken up by the download just for this particular reason. Not only that, make a backup of all your precious data beforehand, and also have the Galaxy S6 edge+ charged to at least half its battery life before proceeding. Do take note that this is an OTA (Over The Air) update, so it is not going to be instantaneous for everyone to hop aboard the Android 7.0 Nougat bandwagon. Be patient if you haven’t yet seen a notification for it appear on your handset. Alternatively, those who want to be sure that they will not miss out on the update can always take this particular route by checking out Settings > About Phone > Software update.

Not too many people are familiar with the differences between the Galaxy S6 edge and the Galaxy S6 edge+. Based on the name alone, the Galaxy S6 edge+ is larger in its size, and will be heavier, of course. While they both sport a similar aluminum design as well as Gorilla Glass 4 at the back, only silver is offered as a color choice for the Galaxy S6 edge+ that is different from the Galaxy S6 edge, which has green in lieu. Other shared shades are white, black, and gold.

The Galaxy S6 edge+ will have a 5.7-inch display as opposed to the Galaxy S6 edge's 5.1-inch display, with a similar resolution between the two. Notably, the Galaxy S6 edge+ comes with 1GB more RAM, which could be a deal clincher for those who want all possible edges in terms of performance capability. Better late than never in this case, so enjoy your Android 7.0 Nougat update when it arrives!
