Samsung Galaxy Note 5 and Galaxy S6 Edge Plus smartphones in the US are now getting the promised update to Android 7.0 Nougat. AT&T has already begun rolling it out to those devices; just a few days after Sprint did the same.

While AT&T has not yet published the official changelog for the Galaxy Note 5 Android 7.0 Nougat update on its support pages, a number of the carrier's customers have posted on the company's forums that they have already started to download the Android 7.0 Nougat update on their devices. People who got the update claim that the build number for the latest Android Nougat update is NRD90M and the file size is 1.4 GB.

Additionally, with Android 7.0 Nougat, AT&T's OTA update also carries March 2017 Android security patches. Latest update on Galaxy Note 5 and Galaxy S6 Edge Plus adds the Samsung Cloud, and Samsung Pass apps, while also removing some other apps like the AT&T Address Book, MobiTV, and AT&T Live, as reported by Android Authority.

Some users of Galaxy Note 5 and Galaxy S6 Edge Plus units purchased from AT&T have already installed the new software release that is rolling out over-the-air. When you do get the notification, keep in mind that you'll have around 1.44GB to download, so it is advisable to do that over Wi-Fi, according to GSM Arena.

AT&T Galaxy Note 5 and Galaxy S6 Edge Plus owners can go to the Settings section of their phone to download the latest Android 7.0 Nougat update and also check to see if the Nougat update is currently available. Since it just started rolling out, it could take a few days to reach your device, as per Android Police.

Android 7.0 Nougat update for Verizon and T-Mobile Galaxy Note 5 and Galaxy S6 Edge Plus devices will be rolling out, along with the one made for the unlocked version. If you own the Galaxy Note 5 and have downloaded Nougat via AT&T, what are your thoughts on the latest update of the update?
