[Update: UK too] Samsung launches Android 7.0 beta program for the Galaxy S7 and Galaxy S7 edge in South Korea

Two days after it announced that it would be bringing its Android 7.0 Nougat beta program for the Galaxy S7 and Galaxy S7 edge to the UK and US, Samsung has kicked off the scheme in South Korea. To be in with a chance of participating, users have to download the official Samsung Members application from the Galaxy Apps or Google Play Store. Once installed, they’ll have to register for an invitation to join the beta by filling in a request form.

It’s worth noting, however, that the beta program is only available for the SKT, KT and LG U+ variants of the Galaxy S7 and Galaxy S7 edge in South Korea. The regular factory unlocked unit, together with the Injustice and Olympic Edition of the Galaxy S7 edge are all exempt from the scheme for reasons that remain unknown. Although, we’re guessing it’s because they run modified firmware that will require a greater deal of maintenance to run Nougat.

Update: Samsung has now opened up the Android 7.0 Nougat beta program for the Galaxy S7 and the Galaxy S7 edge in the United Kingdom too.

Hi, if you have app and having a problem with registration, like ” server error”,
open the app – go to its setting – disable the Samsung account – close the app and then open it again – go to registration – it will ask for Samsung account and you are good to go…
this only works with BTU versions

Really looking forward for first impressions and news about this beta.
Are the new AOD features included? Is it possible to interact with the AOD Screen?
Is the new Smart Manager included? …

How can the Unlocked variant run modified software that would make it difficult to run Nougat, and the carrier bloat version not?
