Samsung is yet to announced the list of eligible devices for Android 7.0 Nougat update. The South Korean giant is notorious for delayed OS updates for its devices. The company recently rolled out the Marshmallow 6.0.1 update for its Galaxy J5 smartphone. However, Samsung is reportedly planning to bring Android 7.0 Nougat update to its devices [including Galaxy S7, Galaxy S6, Galaxy Note 5, etc] within few months.
Recently, the Samsung Galaxy S7 running Android 7.0 Nougat was spotted on the official GFXBench online database. Reportedly, the Galaxy S7 and Galaxy S7 Edge are also undergoing the OS testing in Poland.
