The much awaited Android Nougat 7.0 update is rolling out for Samsung Galaxy S6 and S6 Edge users after the company announced the delay because of quality testing. Originally the update was set to roll out at the end of February but the company announced the delay on its Samsung UK Twitter handle pointing out the delay.

Days after the delay, the update seems to be rolling out for users. We can assume that the company is done reviewing the quality of the firmware and update and all the problems have been fixed.
Vodafone is rolling out the update in the UK with the new firmware version G925FXXU5EQBG according to a report by Sammobile. Separate reports point to the rollout of the update in Switzerland, Germany and Italy.
The current rollout seems to be limited to Europe and Samsung has not issued any official statement regarding the rollout plans on any of its official channels at the time of writing. We will have to wait and watch about the eventual global rollout and how long before the update comes to India.
This comes days after the announcement that Samsung has delayed the launch date of the upcoming flagship, Samsung Galaxy S8 by a week to 28 April 2017.
