We’ve got Android 7.0 Nougat beta running on a Galaxy S7 [Screenshots]

Samsung has announced an Android 7.0 Nougat beta program for the Galaxy S7 and the Galaxy S7 edge. The program is open to those who own this handset in select countries but so far the beta firmware has not been rolled out as only registrations for the program are being taken right now. We already have a beta Android 7.0 Nougat firmware that we’ve installed on a Galaxy S7 – version G930FXXU1ZPK1 – so we can now share all that’s new in this much-awaited major Android update for Samsung devices.

We’ve observed that the New UX that will be introduced with Nougat feels very smooth. Samsung has also added some new animations that flow seamlessly. The user interface actually feels like a mix of the Grace UX that Samsung introduced with the Galaxy Note 7 and the New UX developed for Nougat. The new font looks pretty cool as well, it’s the company’s new universal font called SamsungOne.

A blue light filter is baked right into the software which many of us who like to use our smartphones in bed will certainly like. Samsung has also added four new modes to tailor software performance – Normal, Game, Entertainment and High Performance – depending upon whatever the device is being used for at that particular time. Aside from a new Always On Display, the OS comes with a new Device Maintenance feature which provides an overall rating of device performance and even lets users take certain steps to further optimize performance.

We’ve posted dozens of screenshots down below to give you a proper look at the upcoming major Android update for Samsung devices. Note that some screenshots have different resolutions due to varying performance modes used.

What do you think about this new look and feel that Samsung has created as part of the Android 7.0 Nougat update? Do let us know by leaving a comment below.

It looks like that the October securtiy patch for the Note 5 in Korea has already parts of Nougat integrated. It is still running on Android 6.0.1 but seems to have features of Nougat. Am surprised that SamMobile hasn’t posted anything about this.

Yes only if you go to settings – themes , wallpapers and icons – top left corner click on my page and you can download any themes you previously own and still do on 7.0 beta but you can’t download new themes only wallpapers , icons and themes from your own page until the official 7.0 comes out at the end of December beginning of January 2017 … 🙂

The problem is that Samsung updating policy is very bad we are seeing how beautiful the new update is, but no one will ever see the official stable update for more than six or eight months because the beta program will end in december just in time for the S8 launch and as we know Samsung they will give the S8 a head start and an advantage with Android 7 which means we will have it on the S7 and S7 edge by June or July and then comes regional releases and there time difference.

No not on the beta version but if you download your previously owned themes on 6.0 , 6.1 onto 7.0 it changes the background colour and icons shade aswell 🙂

seriously, over half the screen shots do not show anything different. Yes I know the colours are different but a lot of the stuff look still the same. I like the new notification bar and the optimization options. not sure If I would use them but good that it is there.

Please anyone would mind sharing the advanced settings for the Wi-Fi menu within Nougat environment ?

We are looking for any references on Hotspot 2.0 / Passpoint / Wi-Fi Roaming / Allow Wi-Fi roaming scans, related information.

Why is there always so much white in latest iterations of touchwiz, knowing that most of their flagships use an AMOLED screen and therefore consume much more energy displaying white content??

You can get dark themes from the theme store. I agree.

Yep, I instantly imagine everything with a black pixels-off theme, not a dark-grey waste of space.

Wish they would have posted some screenshots with a dark theme – what most people wana see 2bh.

Compared to note 7 UX, I am disappointed. I am not a fan of the bold capitalized text for the label on the screen you are on. And I absolutely HATE that when you expand the quick menu the quick options span across 3 pages. This is so stupid and ugly. Currently on my S7 edge when I expand my quick menu I see all my quick options all on one page.
