It has been over a week since Samsung launched the Galaxy Beta Program in the United States, United Kingdom, South Korea and China. The program enables users to register for an opportunity to try Android 7.0 Nougat beta builds on their Galaxy S7 and Galaxy S7 edge. Samsung hasn’t confirmed as yet if this program is going to be expanded to other countries but there’s a possibility that it may be launched in the Philippines next week.

One of our readers has shared a screenshot of a live chat conversation with Samsung Philippines support. He was asking about the possibility of Nougat beta program being launched for users in the Philippines. “You may wait until early next week for its release to your device,” was the support representative’s reply, suggesting that the beta program might be expanded to the Philippines.

It would be great if Samsung decides to expand the reach of this program but I won’t consider this to be a done deal just yet. Samsung’s support representatives have often made contradictory statements when it comes to firmware and even this representative’s reply doesn’t make that much sense. It’s not like Android 7.0 Nougat beta will be released to all Galaxy S7 and Galaxy S7 edge users in the country. The program requires interested users to register and it’s up to Samsung to decide how many get in.

Like I said, Samsung’s decision to expand the program will be appreciated, but nothing concrete has come up so far to support the theory. If you’re interested in finding out what improvements Samsung is going to bring with this update, do check out our Whats New With Nougat series.
