Samsung Galaxy S7 and Galaxy S7 Edge continue to be the most popular flagship Samsung phones, especially after the Note 7 fiasco. While many smartphones are expected to receive the Android Nougat update latest by March end, Samsung had already allowed beta program participants to run Android 7.0 Nougat on Galaxy S7. The third beta update was the last beta program update for Samsung Galaxy S7 and Galaxy S7 Edge. When the beta program ended last month, Samsung had told that it would work on releasing the official Android 7.0 Nougat update soon.
Samsung rolling out Android 7.0 Nougat for Galaxy S7 and Galaxy S7 Edge
Samsung had already started rolling out Android 7.0 Nougat for a select number of users. Only a few users were getting the update since the company was conducting soak test ahead of the full-fledged roll-out. But now the Galaxy S7 and Galaxy S7 Edge users don’t have to wait any longer for Android Nougat update! Samsung has already started the roll-out of Android 7.0 Nougat for Galaxy S7 and Galaxy S7 Edge. Screenshots from SamMobile hint at a European S7 edge that was enrolled in the beta program downloading the OTA update. Those in the beta program will see the update file of size 215MB. Those not enrolled in the beta program will get the update as well.
Although Samsung’s beta team had announced that the official roll-out will begin on January 17th, Samsung has delivered on its milestone nearly a week in advance. It’s quite surprising to see Galaxy S7 and Galaxy S7 Edge receiving the official Android Nougat update this early. However, this is just Android 7.0 Nougat – not the improved Android 7.1 version. After Europe, other markets are also expected to receive the official Android 7.0 Nougat very soon.
