Answered: Why you have not received the Nougat 7.0 update for the S6 & S6 edge in India

As per reports from various websites, publications & users, Samsung has rolled out the Nougat 7.0 update for the S6 & S6 edge but still, a majority of users are complaining about not receiving the update. The update brings latest features of Nougat like the blue light filter, improved doze mode & also Samsung's new UI & provides freshness to the ageing device.

FoneArena was the first to catch the rolling update & announced its availability on 19th April for the Indian users. It has been several days since & the update has become a mystery. With some users getting the update while others stuck at marshmallow 6.0.1, websites posting about its availability but the users not getting it & Samsung's customer care informing that the latest available update for the S6 edge is marshmallow, there seems to be a lot of confusion.

Clearing the Confusion

Sales Code/Customer Service Code(CSR) are a deciding factor for the availability of updates for your device. These codes are important for the operation of your device. Different countries have different voice & data standards & the codes ensure that the device complies with the standards of your country.

The S6/S6 edge in India either have INU or  INS sales code & as per our research, the Nougat 7.0 update with March security update has been rolled out in India by Samsung but only to the devices with INU sales code.

To know your device's code, follow these steps:

1. Open your phone's dialer & dial *#06# to obtain your device's IMEI number.
2. Dial *#272*IMEI NUMBER#
3. This will open up a window & show you the sales code for your device.
4. Press cancel to exit.

List showing your device's code
If the code is INS, sadly you'd have to wait for a few more days to get the update.

If you're impatient & want to get your hands on the latest update immediately, there is a trick! Simple follow the steps given above & then change the sales code from INS to INU & tap on the Install button (this will format & reset your device so do backup all your data prior to this). After the device reboots, go to settings-> about device-> download updates manually & you'll see the update immediately. Although we don't guarantee the trick to be harmless, we have found many users getting the update via the trick with no issues at all.
