Android 7.0 Nougat is finally coming to Samsung's Galaxy S6 and S6 edge on T-Mobile

Samsung began upgrading its Galaxy S6 and S6 edge to Android 7.0 three months ago, and wasted little time in making the update available in numerous markets. Sprint was the first major US carrier to bring Nougat to the two devices in April, followed soon after by Verizon and AT&T.

Now, two months after Sprint's rollout began, T-Mobile is finally preparing to release Nougat for the Galaxy S6 and S6 edge. The magenta carrier said that its rollout is expected to start sometime this week.

Further details remain hazy for now, but on other carriers, the update for those devices was over 1GB in size, and included various bug fixes and stability improvements.

It's also unclear which Android security patches will be bundled as part of the update. Google released its new June security update yesterday, but given that carriers need time to test these patches before they're deployed, it seems more likely that T-Mo will bring the May patches to the Galaxy S6 and S6 edge this week instead.
