Samsung Galaxy Note 5 Android phablet gets Nougat on Verizon Wireless
Samsung Galaxy Note 5
These two handsets on Sprint got the Android 7.0 Nougat update last week, and now Verizon Wireless does the same. The new firmware has 1.3 GB in size and rolls out in stages, so it might take a while for it to reach all compatible handsets.

Samsung Galaxy Note 5 and the Galaxy S6 Edge+ flagship have been around for a while and Sprint updated the units on its network last week. AT&T became the second major carrier to do it, starting to roll out the new firmware yesterday. Earlier today, Verizon Wireless finally unleashed Android 7.0 Nougat to the Galaxy Note 5 and Galaxy S6 Edge+ as well.

The new software versions are NRD90M.N920VVRU3CQB9 (Note 5) and NRD90M.G928VVRU3CQB9 (S6 Edge+). Both updates have about 1.3 GB in size and bring Android Nougat to these devices on Verizon Wireless for the first time. In addition to the new Android 7.0 features that can be found in any such update, there are also some Note 5-specific capabilities involved. After the update, Note 5 users on Verizon will be able to create GIF animations, use the S Pen to markup and edit PDF files, as well as to send messages and get instant translations via the S Pen AIR command menu.

The update rolls out in stages as usual, so some users might need to wait for a few days until they receive the notification.

In my early school days, I hated writing and having to make up stories. A decade later, I started to enjoy it. Since then, I published a few offline articles and then I moved to the online space, where I contributed to major websites that are still present online as of 2021 such as Softpedia, Brothersoft, Download3000, but I also wrote for multiple blogs that have disappeared over the years. I've been riding with the Notebookcheck crew since 2013 and I am not planning to leave it anytime soon. In love with good mechanical keyboards, vinyl and tape sound, but also smartphones, streaming services, and digital art.
