[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!

Samsung is approaching the launch of updated Android 7.0 (Noga) your last Bhoatvha, and initially will be as usual with the newer phones and we are talking here about a telephone Galaxy S7 and S7 Edge, who did not live to Note 7 Aharkhma this occasion (happy).

Still demo update is not available yet, but Samsung has launched an application on behalf of Galaxy Beta Program is available for download now just across the British version of the Google Play store allows users of the two devices mentioned register for a chance to download a beta version of Alnoja on their phone.

Available for download application also format apk but it does not work yet because Samsung apparently has not launched the beta version at the moment but this is expected in the coming hours, we do not know whether to download the application manually from outside the store will enable users outside Britain to sign up for the beta version, but it is expected anyway leakage quickly and provided for installation in several ways.

I think “good bye” to google , what the different between marshmallow and nougat in smartphone of google ; nothing important (the multitasking is found in samsung from many years , the organistation of notifications not importance here ,the technical doze is great lie from google ;many users after them experience with marshmallow says that , and me one of them …) , what’s in your view the importance of the changement here ? Nothing necessary in nexus or pixel .
In addition the high price !!! For what this high price ?
I’m not go to pay high price for just the updates ,particularly these updates just a change in number from 6 to 7 in google stock android .

When the beta rolls out, Shouldnt it be possible to just download the firmware as a file and flash it? Or is it necessary to be on the beta program and BTU rom?

redouanetsps
5 months 24 days ago

Yes it possible , if the beta rolls out you can download it and install it very easy from odin ,
The developers are preparing the software very fast after rolls out

Mawty

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!

Ionut Ciprian

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
5 months 25 days ago

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!

Mawty
5 months 25 days ago

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?

Just download the latest BTU firmware and extract the csc file (or home_csc.bin) using 7zip. If you to download a firmware faster use the SamFirm tool (which can be found in xda).

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

geiti94

ask google to change his requirments :P 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

thegeneral2010
5 months 25 days ago

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

berkbu
5 months 25 days ago

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

WP00
5 months 25 days ago

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

geiti94
5 months 25 days ago

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