Samsung’s 2015 flagships, the Samsung Galaxy S6 and Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge, were always expected to be updated to Android Nougat, and the South Korean company has now started work on the revised firmware. Both devices were important, as they helped to establish Samsung’s current smartphone design philosophy.
Although the Samsung Galaxy S6 and Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge were not the first Samsung smartphones to eschew a plastic build, they did represent a high-profile departure from most previous designs.
After recording disappointing sales figures with the Samsung Galaxy S5, the 2015 flagships needed delivered.
And Samsung were not disappointed, with the Samsung Galaxy S6 series producing a strong sales performance, encouraging the company to stick with the glass sandwich design.
