Samsung brings Android 7.0 Nougat to Galaxy S6 and Galaxy S6 edge in India [Update: Nope]

Update: SamMobile has since retracted its story, and said that the update is not rolling out in India. It added: "we will certainly try to be more alert in the future. Sorry for any confusion caused."

Last week, Samsung began its rollout of Android 7.0 for the Galaxy S6 and Galaxy S6 edge in several European markets, quickly expanding availability to more countries over the following days.

Now, the company has brought the update to both of those handsets in India too. Samsung hasn't formally announced its release there, but multiple owners of both the S6 and S6 edge have confirmed that their devices have been upgraded to Nougat.

Samsung initially planned to bring the update to the two handsets in February, but delayed its rollout for over a week in order to "review its quality". It followed Samsung's release of the update for the Galaxy S7 and S7 edge in early January.

It's now been almost seven months since Google initially released Android 7.0, but so far, just 2.8% of active devices are running Nougat builds, including the newer Android 7.1 and 7.1.1 releases.
