U.S. based carrier T-Mobile announced in end April that it would push out the Android 7.0 Nougat update for the #Galaxy S6 Edge+. The much-anticipated software update finally made it to the consumers in early May. Now after almost a month, the carrier has decided to roll out the same update for the other two handsets in the Galaxy S6 series. A T-Mobile representative confirmed that both the smartphones will be benefiting from the Android 7.0 Nougat very soon.

When will the update roll out?

T-Mobile’s product manager Des Smith revealed the news of the update’s arrival on via his Twitter account. He stated that the Android 7.0 Nougat update would reach all Galaxy S6 and Galaxy S6 Edge users hooked onto the carrier by “this week.” The changelog was not available on the carrier’s support page at the time of writing.

However, given the fact that most OTA software updates are pushed out in phases, it never reaches all handsets at once. The roll out generally spreads over a few days. The latest update brings the Samsung smartphones to Android 7.0 and not Android 7.1.1.

What does the update bring?

After the two smartphones are updated to Android N, many new features will be introduced to the T-Mobile variants of Samsung’s 2015 flagships. These features include multiple language support. With the help of this feature, users can select any one of the preferred languages, in which they would like to use the handset.

The #Android Nougat update also brings brand new emojis.

After the installation of the update, the smartphone will be equipped with 1,500 new emojis, including the 72 new emojis designed to promote gender equality. The update also brings multi-window support, which will enable users to use more than one app or program at the same time. This simultaneous usage of apps will eliminate the necessity to toggle between two apps and instead, will let the user work on both programs without shutting down one.

Another highlighted feature of the update is the Doze Mode. The feature not only saves the battery of the smartphone but also extends the device’s battery life even while it is in use. The quick reply feature will allow a user to reply to a message directly from the notifications window without opening the app.
