Almost two years since its launched, the Samsung Galaxy S6 still hits the spot when it comes to performance and reliability. As we’ve already known, the Galaxy S6 isn’t just any ordinary devices because for one, it’s a Samsung device, second is it’s Samsung’s 2015 flagship and third is its hefty price tag back in the day.

And as users pay for premium for flagships, it carries a promise from the manufacturers that it gets updated from time to time as new versions of Android comes in. This is also in accordance with Google’s term on updating existing devices for the next two years since the device was launched.

Samsung promised Android 7.0 (Nougat) update since last year and they were supposed to roll out the update last month, but that didn’t happened which made users to wait for another few weeks. Thankfully today though, Samsung finally rolled out the update in selected regions in Europe with firmware version number G925FXXU5EQBG.

Users from the UK, Italy, Germany and Switzerland reported that they are now receiving the updates but that’s with the unlocked versions of the handsets. Units from mobile carriers will have to wait for a little more for the update to roll out as it is in practice, carriers will undergo and perform testing with the update before they push them to their subscribers.

The update takes about 1.3 GB in size and comes with all the improvements included in Android 7.0 plus Samsung’s own optimizations and a refreshed UI changes. It also comes with Samsung Cloud which gives users 15GB of free cloud storage space that automatically sync Apps, Settings, Calendar entries, Contacts and Notes.
