[Update: App removed] Samsung starts Android 7.0 Nougat beta testing for the Galaxy S7 edge in the UK!

Samsung joined the club of other smartphone makers last year in letting its consumers beta test the next major Android upgrade – Galaxy S6 and Galaxy S6 edge owners were able to test Android 6.0 Marshmallow much before the update was made official. Now, the Korean giant has started beta testing Android 7.0 Nougat for the Galaxy S7 edge (and, we presume, the regular Galaxy S7 as well) in the UK.

With the Galaxy Note 7 out of the market, Samsung is no doubt looking to quicken the pace at which it completes porting Android Nougat to the S7 and S7 edge. This time, users will have to download the Galaxy Beta Program app from the Galaxy Apps store on their device to enrol for the beta program, although whether you are actually selected for the program is something Samsung will decide. The beta registration doesn’t seem to be working just yet, but it should once Samsung makes an official announcement of the program.

For those who can’t find the Galaxy Beta Program app in the store, the APK for the app is available for download from this link (alternate link here) so you can do a manual install. We will be working on getting the beta installed on our Galaxy S7 edge and will be publishing a detailed guide with instructions on how to register for the beta (remember, registration doesn’t mean you will be selected for the program). Also look for a full rundown of Android 7.0 on the Galaxy S7 edge in the coming days.

Update: Samsung has removed the Galaxy Beta Program app for now and it could be a while before it’s available for download once again.

Samsung is likely to have problems to release Android 7.0 also in beta, also because it is not possible that since yesterday you can not download the firmware !!!! I am disappointed, I remember that on LG’s terminals in rollout Android 7.0 and also in stable version!

Well the Beta for the Note 5 is with the new GraceUX.I think that the S6/S6 Edge/S6 Edge Plus may get the new TouchWiz (GraceUX) as well!

I’m wondering if the Nougat update will bring the new TouchWiz as well.
It’s about time for Samsung to change the interface.
The actual one is perfect but became boring 🙂

Mawty

I think it will! Atleast for the S7/S7 edge is confirmed! But since on the Beta for the Note 5 is with the new GraceUX i think that the S6/S6 edge/S6 Edge Plus may get the new TouchWiz (GraceUX) as well!

Lmao! You know… sometimes Samsung listens to their consumers so that they can make their (in this case “software updates”) products better!And why do you think they are launching the beta you smart guy?

Samsung must update Note 4 with the 7.0 in order to preserve the customer base.

ask google to change his requirments 😛 when the gpu dont have some standards= no nougat. n4 exynos support it but the crapdragon n4 dont support it so no nougat for both… a one more reason for hate the crapdragon cpu

WP00

The 805 does support Nougat actually. Nexus 6 runs it.

geiti94
geiti94

can be that both support it but for me is easyer to port nougat on n4 exynos 😛 s6 32bit libs and some frameworks and kernel mods and n4 exynos can boot nougat 🙂

berkbu

n4 SD805 supports it or sure! there are so many other devices which have same SoC and run android 7

thegeneral2010
thegeneral2010

Both exynos 5433 and sd805 supports nougat requirements no problem in that its only company agreement is the only barrier.
