Although the Samsung Galaxy S6 and S6 Edge have not been around for that long and should get the long-awaited Nougat update, the release of the new firmware has been delayed due to quality concerns and is now expected to arrive "at the earliest opportunity."

Samsung Galaxy S6 and its companion known as Galaxy S6 Edge are both still very capable handsets but, unfortunately, Android Nougat is not ready for them yet. The company's UK subsidiary has just unveiled a few things about the upcoming firmware, and the main problem is that the update has been delayed.

Answering a few questions on Twitter, Samsung UK mentioned that the update for the Galaxy S6 handsets "has been delayed while we review its quality." Unfortunately, there is no information available about the accurate time frame for its release. All that we know about its arrival date is that "The new software version will be made available at the earliest opportunity."

The Galaxy S6 was announced back in March 2015 and released one month later. At launch, it packed Android 5.0.2 Lollipop, and now it should receive its last major update since it will soon be two years old. These being said, it only remains to see how fast will Samsung manage to iron out all the undisclosed issues of the new firmware.

Although I have been writing about new software and hardware for almost a decade, I consider myself to be old school. I always enjoy listening to music on CD or tape instead of digital files and I will not even get into the touchscreen vs physical keys debate. However, I also enjoy new technology, as I now have the chance to take a look at the future every day. I joined the Notebookcheck crew back in 2013 and I have no plans to leave the ship anytime soon.
