Samsung recently confirmed that it’s working on Android 7.0 Nougat for the Galaxy S7 and the Galaxy S7 Edge. The company has actually launched a beta program which allows registered users to take the beta firmware for a spin. It was also reported recently that work on Nougat for the Galaxy S6 series has also begun. Now a Galaxy S6 running Android 7.0 Nougat has been spotted on benchmarking websites.

Nougat-powered Galaxy S6 has been spotted on both GeekBench and GFXBench websites which suggests that the development of this update is moving along nicely.

There was never any doubt that the Galaxy S6 series will not be updated to Nougat. Android devices typically receive major updates for at least two years after they’re launched so there’s time yet for the Galaxy S6 family.

It’s only a matter of when will the Galaxy S6 receive Nougat. Samsung’s priority will obviously be getting this update out the door first for the Galaxy S7 and the Galaxy S7 Edge. While the company is yet to confirm an official release date, it’s possible that the update may not be released until early next year.

This would mean that Galaxy S6 owners will have to wait even longer to get Nougat on their handsets. Samsung is yet to confirm a release timeline for Nougat.
