Unlocked Samsung s6 Nougat

I have a Samsung galaxy s6 (Unlocked, bought on Amazon) and I'm wondering if the whole UK rolling out rumour is true.  I can't find anything from Samsung except from a few people claiming to have the update.  I know this isn't EE related, but has anyone got any possible evidence it's out?

Re: Unlocked Samsung s6 Nougat

Samsung rolls it out to all networks at same time so they can do their testing etc.

 

Samsung doesn't roll it out to their users at this stage.

 

Vodafone is almost always first to roll it out. Followed by Samsung unlocked firmware.

Re: Unlocked Samsung s6 Nougat

You have the UK stock firmware version.

 

This hasn't been released on Nougat yet but it won't be long until it does.

 

At moment it is only Vodafone and Uk/Ireland versions released.

 

BTU is normally after Vodafone so you should see it in next couple weeks.

Re: Unlocked Samsung s6 Nougat

I expected it to come out to The Stock version first, as an unlocked phone.  Infact I've never seen anyone say it's come out on a carrier quicker than when the phone is not locked to a mobile network.  Did Samsung release the update to Vodafone for them to roll it out first or have Vodafone rolled it out themselves?

Total rubbish.  Android 7 is NOT available yet for S6 on EE or BTU unbranded.  

 

Only UK provider that has Android 7 so far is Vodaphone...

Re: Unlocked Samsung s6 Nougat

I emailed SAMSUNG and they wrote a reply which is saying this The android version 7 Nougat has been released in the uk to all network providers and samsung device but all devices will receive them a different times. Expect to receive the update shortly.

 

I hope this will answer you questions.

 

Many Thanks

All that means is that Samsung has released to firmware to the networks to do their Quality Controle Testing before it gets rolled out 

 

Samsung hasn't even released it for unlocked BTU firmware yet.

It depends what firmware you have will determine who you need to contact.

 

Currently only Vodafone has released Nougat on the S6 and S6 Edge.

Re: Unlocked Samsung s6 Nougat

@webmasterroot

Where did you purchase phone from

 

Supply the details from dialing *#1234#

 

It may not even be EE needing to roll out to you as if you didn't purchase direct from EE you don't have their firmware.  So if EE did roll it out you wouldn't get it.

 

Samsung hasn't even rolled it out to their UNLOCKED devices yet.

Re: Unlocked Samsung s6 Nougat

I've contacted Samsung support on Twitter... Again.

 

They've said that it's being rolled out in "batches" and they don't have a specific date.  Noone in the UK with an unlocked version has gotten the update (At least noone who tells the internet...).  Only Vodafone customers.  If there's no update in the next week, I'm going to message Samsung about what's going on.
