Telus Samsung Galaxy S6, S8 and S8+ users should expect an update to Nougat within the next four days.

The Samsung Galaxy S6 will get their long awaited Android 7.0 update on May 8th, catching them up with the other approximately 7 percent of Android powered devices running Nougat. Galaxy S6 owners can expect a minor battery update, Doze mode that works while the device is on the move, notification grouping and more.

The S6 update also comes with unspecified bug fixes and security update.

While the Galaxy S6 is getting the Nougat treatment, Telus Samsung Galaxy S8 and S8+ customers are going to receive red tint updates. Don’t worry if you don’t see a red tint on your S8 — you’ll still get the update, but it shouldn’t change anything.

During the MobileSyrup testing of the Galaxy S8 our reviewer Patrick O’Rouke never experienced the red tint issue. However, some Galaxy S8 and S8+ owners complained about a slight red tint to their devices. Although it could be resolved with changing the colour balance on the device, the Korean company decided to release an update to rectify the issue and increase the colour balance range on the device.
