The update is dubbed as build version G928AUCS4CPL1, it is not the Nougat update yet but still in Android Marshmallow based. The said update only weighs at 14.7MB in file size and it brings nothing more but the new Android Security patches to which now covers the month of  December 2016.

Moreover, this update is now the 7th Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow released on AT&T Galaxy S6 since June 2016. The Nougat update might start to roll out sooner but we cannot guarantee any exact date to when it could arrive.  Some reports suggest the the Nougat will be rolling out on April, but we couldn't take it into an account until Samsung and the said carrier make an official announcements.

Device Update via Over-The-Air (OTA)

This is the usual method on how to check and to perform an update on Galaxy S6 edge+  to the latest software version.  This method is what we called Firmware Update  Over-The-Air and so-called as FOTA or simply OTA update. In most often cases, a notification message will be directly sent out to you by your network provider and by Samsung itself, telling you that there is a new update that has now available for download.  This approach requires you to prepare a strong WiFi connection,  and so it might happen sometimes that one did not receive any software update notification messages;
1. If and when the device is out of range during the software update roll out  period,
2. Automatic update has been turned off in the device Settings.
However, We can still manually check for the update instead.

Here’s how to do it manually:
  • From your Galaxy S6 edge+ Home screen tap on Apps.
  • Select the Settings gear icon.
  • Tap About device.
  • Tap Software update.
  • Tap Check for an update.

It will then notify you that a new update is available for download. But it also says that “Your device software is up to date“, and there is no software update is yet available for grab. You can simply choose Install now if you do so or else Install later if you want to get the update in later time.
