In fact, last week we reported about Samsung Turkey releasing a detailed Nougat release roadmap for all Galaxy smartphones including the Galaxy S6 edge+. The said smartphone was scheduled for a March update in the Samsung roadmap. If that information is correct, we can expect the other regions to get the update around the same time.

And now, with the latest WiFi certification for the edge+, it seems the Korean giant is right on track as far as the Android 7.0 Nougat update for its devices are concerned.

For those who can’t remember, Samsung Galaxy S6 edge+ was released in August 2015. It features a 5.7-Inch curved Super AMOLED Quad HD display with a pixel density of ~518 PPI. The 2015 flagship is powered by Exynos 7420 Octa-core (4×2.1 GHz Cortex-A57 & 4×1.5 GHz Cortex-A53) processor and Mali-T760MP8 GPU. It comes in two storage variants of 32 GB and 64 GB, both accompany 4 GB of RAM. There is no expandable storage option in the Corning Gorilla Glass 4 protected smartphone.

Camera department of Galaxy S6 edge+ comprises of 16 MP rear shooter with f/1.9, 28mm, OIS, autofocus and LED flash. On the front, you have a 5 MP sensor with f/1.9, 22mm, 1440p@30fps, dual video call and Auto HDR. The handset supports Samsung Pay and is powered by a Non-removable Li-Ion 3000 mAh battery.

Still, there is no specific date for the Nougat update on the edge+ device, but we will update this space once more info surfaces.
