Samsung had launched the Galaxy S6 Edge Plus as well as the Galaxy Note 5 smartphone in 2015. The smartphones have been the first from the company to mark a different design language opposed to the Galaxy S5 and the Note 4 which was entirely made of metal and glass opposed to the earlier models which were made of plastic. Now, the smartphone had been sold in the other markets as well and the company had partnered with the Australian carrier Optus to sell the Galaxy Note 5 and the S6 Edge Plus smartphones in the country. Now, as far as the smartphones in the Optus network are concerned, the S6 Edge Plus, as well as the Galaxy Note 5, were left out to receive the Android Nougat update on their smartphones.
We have already known that the Galaxy Note 5, as well as S6 Edge Plus, have already received the update from the company but the carrier updates always have a delay due to the various certifications which are needed before rolling out the update. Now, the Australian carrier Optus looks all set to finally roll out the much-needed Android Nougat update to the Galaxy S6 Edge Plus as well as Note 5 smartphones on its network.
As far as the Nougat update is concerned, the update will bring revamped user interface, new settings menu, quick replying from notification shade, bundled notifications and a whole lot more besides improving the battery life with the improved Doze mode. Apart from that, the update will come to all the smartphones on the Optus network as an OTA and the smartphones should be updated to the latest software version as soon as possible. As far as the update release is concerned, the Australian carrier Optus may release the update to both the smartphones later this month so stay tuned for the update.
