Verizon releases Android 7.0 Nougat for the Galaxy S6 and the Galaxy S6 edge

Ever since Samsung released Android 7.0 Nougat for the Galaxy S7 and the Galaxy S7 edge, all eyes have been on carriers in the United States to follow through. Carriers tend to hold up updates for a few weeks as they make their own tweaks and often add some bloatware. The firmware has since been released for other Samsung devices as well. Today, we have some good news for Verizon customers. Big Red has now released Android 7.0 Nougat for the Galaxy S6 and the Galaxy S6 edge.

It’s now rolling out software version G920VVRS4DQD1 and G925VVRS4DQD1 for the Galaxy S6 and the Galaxy S6 edge respectively. They’re quite chunky because of the simple fact that they are major Android version updates that bump up the core OS to Nougat, the latest iteration of Android from Google.

If you’re unclear about What’s New with Nougat, the latest update brings a handful of new features such as a blue light filter, the ability to adjust screen resolution, simpler device maintenance, Video Enhancer and a plethora of user interface tweaks and improvements.

Verizon subscribers who own a Galaxy S6 or Galaxy S6 edge will get all of this and more as part and parcel of the Nougat update that the carrier has now started rolling out. Check out the video posted below to see what Nougat looks like on the Galaxy S6.
