Samsung is busy working on the Android 7.0 Nougat development of several Galaxy devices such as the Note 5, Tab S2, S6 Edge, S6, S7 Edge, and the Galaxy S7. The second beta build for Android 7.0 Nougat was released recently and this includes the OS update for the 2015 flagship Galaxy S6. The platform version is now under development for the Android phone.

A recent benchmark listing has confirmed it. Actually, it’s not only one source but from two benchmarks tests. Both Geekbench and GFXBench have information about the Android 7.0 Nougat for the Samsung Galaxy S6 series but details are scarce for now.

Looking at the Geekbench document, we can confirm the Galaxy S6 will run Android 7.0 Nougat out of the box and use a 1.5GHz ARM processor.

It was only last week when we heard of the good news that the Galaxy S6 and S6 edge will be served the with the Nougat. The Galaxy S6/S6 edge build should bring several new improvements like finger reader gestures, multi-window support, night light, and VR mode that is best enjoyed on the Gear VR headset.

Below is a list of specs of the Samsung Galaxy S6 (SM-G20X) from GFXBench:


Note that this Android 7.0-powered Samsung Galaxy S6 is the Exynos variant. Nothing has changed. The specs are still the same but now we’re certain Android 7.0 Nougat for the Galaxy S6 is almost ready.
