If you store sensitive information on your Galaxy S6 or Galaxy S6 Edge you'll want to consider installing the Nougat update soon after it arrives for your device.
Here are a few key features:
The Samsung Galaxy Tab S2 Nougat update is pushing for the 8-inch and 9.7-inch models in Europe. Specifically, the updates are rolling out to the Galaxy Tab S2 8.0 (SM-T715) in Italy and the Galaxy Tab S2 9.7 (SM-T810) in Germany.
The Galaxy Tab S2 update is also rolling out in the United States. The update is now live for the 8-inch model and the 9.7-inch model. It should be heading out to the AT&T Galaxy Tab S2 in the near future.
Samsung’s also now pushing out the Galaxy Tab A Nougat update to the 10-inch model. It’s pushing to the Wi-Fi and Wi-Fi+LTE variants.
A new Nougat update for the Galaxy S8 kills the ability to remap the Bixby button. Bixby is the new voice assistant on board the Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8+.
It’s safe to assume Samsung will leave the Galaxy S5 (and all of its variants) on the Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow operating system.
Google’s Android 7.1 Nougat update is now available for select Nexus devices around the world. It’s packed with new features and bug fixes for lingering Nougat problems.
Oddly enough, the Samsung Galaxy S7 Android Nougat update that’s rolling out right now is based on Android 7.0, not Android 7.1.1.
While Samsung is starting its roll out with Android 7.0, we could see a shift to Android 7.1.1 or Android 7.1.2 down the road.
