Android Nougat coming to T-Mobile's Galaxy S6 Edge+ next week

Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge+ gets Nougat on T-Mobile
Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge+ and Note 5
This curved-display flagship device that arrived in late 2015 is now finally ready for the first Android Nougat update on T-Mobile and will be updated next week, one week after the Galaxy Note 5 received the new software as well.

Earlier this week, T-Mobile unleashed Android Nougat for the Galaxy Note 5 units on its network. Launched back in late 2015, this phablet arrived next to the Galaxy S6 Edge+ flagship. Now, the time has come for this smartphone to get the new software as well.

T-Mobile has recently confirmed that the Nougat firmware for the Galaxy S6 Edge+ has been approved and it should roll out next week. The changes should be the same as those delivered by the update for the Galaxy Note 5 - a new version of Samsung's custom user interface, improved Doze mode, multi-window support, enhanced Quick Settings, more flexible notifications, and more.

The details are not all available yet since the official changelog should surface in a few days as T-Mobile rolls out the new software. Since the update would take the step from Marshmallow to Nougat, we expect it to be quite big and reaching all compatible handsets would take a few days. We will get back to it as soon as the official support page is up, so stay tuned.
