Android 7.0 Nougat rollout expands to more markets for Samsung's Galaxy S6 and S6 edge

This week, Samsung began rolling out its Android 7.0 update for the Galaxy S6 and S6 edge in several European markets. The update was originally scheduled for release in February, but Samsung said that it needed to "review its quality", leading to a short delay.

Among those to have received the Nougat update so far are some Galaxy S6 and S6 edge owners in the United Kingdom, Ireland, Italy, the Netherlands and Romania, including many who purchased their devices from Vodafone. Swisscom has also released the update for both devices.

Samsung is quickly expanding availability of the update across more European markets, as SamMobile reports. Many owners of both devices are reporting that they've been upgraded to Nougat in Austria, Bulgaria, Croatia, Cyprus, Greece, Hungary, and Turkey too.

These are still early days in the rollout, and it will no doubt take several more weeks before all Galaxy S6 and S6 edge handsets are upgraded to Android 7.0 Nougat. Bear in mind that many carriers tend to drag their feet when it comes to testing and approving updates, so if you bought your device from a mobile operator, there's a good chance that you'll face a much longer wait.
