Android 7.0 for the Galaxy S7 and Galaxy S7 edge to bring Grace UX and improved features


Last updated: September 23rd, 2016 at 15:26 UTC+02:00

Samsung was spotted testing Android 7.0-based firmware on the Galaxy S7 and the Galaxy S7 edge earlier this week. Now, more information regarding Android Nougat for the Galaxy S7 and S7 edge has been revealed.

Apparently, the Android 7.0 update for the Galaxy S7 and S7 edge will bring Grace UX to the devices, which was previously seen on the Galaxy Note 7. Moreover, the company is planning to bring improved Always On Display features from the Note 7 to the S7 and S7 edge. The new UI seems to be performing smoother than the current software on these devices.

Previously, T-Mobile had shared a list of all the Samsung smartphones receiving the Android Nougat update. Also, Samsung had promised to release Android 7.0 for the Galaxy Note 7 in two to three months. However, the company might postpone this plan due to the exploding battery fiasco.
