Received huge update on Galaxy S6, but what is it?!?

Last night I saw there was an update available on my S6. It was a huge file, just under 500 mb. Could this be the Nougat update I wondered all excited! The signs were looking good: it took quite a long time to install, rebooted, went through the whole app optimization process etc...

 So, imagine my disappointment Man Madwhen I went to check the software version and it still  said 6.0.1.

Can any of you readers shed any light? What did I install last night?? Couldn't notice any difference in performance or anything.

Re: Received huge update on Galaxy S6, but what is it?!?

This bought you up to date on the security updates which previously you had May 2016. You now up to date on January 2017.

 

The Nougat update will be over 1Gb.

 

And don't expect that soon as the S7 on EE hasn't been updated to Nougat yet and that will be before they release it on the S6.

Re: Received huge update on Galaxy S6, but what is it?!?

Yes 10 months late and already outdated this brings us up to Jan for security updates. 

 

EE say Samsung and then have agreed to separate out security and OS updates so one doesn't delay the other so I've already asked if this update allows for this, if not why not.
