BREAKING: Samsung starts rolling out Android Nougat to the Galaxy S7 and Galaxy S7 edge

Home / News / BREAKING: Samsung starts rolling out Android Nougat to the Galaxy S7 and Galaxy S7 edge

The time has come. Following weeks of testing, Samsung has finally begun rolling out the official Android Nougat update for the Galaxy S7 and Galaxy S7 edge. Those on the Nougat beta should be seeing an update around 215 MB in size; regular users will get the update as well, although Samsung is giving the early bird advantage to those running the beta version.

It’s nice to see how quickly Samsung has rolled out the Nougat upgrade, especially given the slew of new features and changes it brings to the S7 and S7 edge, including a new user interface. Samsung’s beta team had confirmed earlier that the final version of Nougat would be released on January 17th – the update has arrived almost a week earlier, although it’s possible that date was mentioned regarding those who weren’t part of the beta program.

In any case, availability of Android 7.0 (yes, it’s not 7.1.1, although the security patch is dated January 1) should expand to S7 and S7 edge users in more markets over the coming days. Check out our What’s New With Nougat series to see what Android Nougat brings to the Galaxy S7 and Galaxy S7 edge, and let us know if you are seeing the update on your S7 or S7 edge!

Because Samsung little care to update their devices to the latest version of Android, I will tell you why every time Samsung pulls out a new phone this comes with the latest version of Android, so they prefer not to update their devices until they sell the new one Is the same in regards to the system if you update the previous phones, in a nutshell Samsung is the same Apple shit only want money nothing more, eye is already 6 months that Google will announce the Nougat version for Android devices

How is a free software update a money grab?.. You lost me… Its Samsung doesn’t own the android software… Google does. So you shouldn’t be blaming Samsung. Plus certain versions of nougat wouldn’t work well with the tizen and Samsung touchwiz UI as efficiently as you may think. There’s a reason behind it.. That reason is stability.

I don’t see any reason why some people here complain. You’ll get the update when you’ll get it! Complaining will not near the date at all! Beta testers have the Nougat so Samsung is probably updating final finishes and the January Security patches. 215MB update file proves this. The rest of us, who are on marshmallow, will need a fuller update perhaps over 1GB file. Since the present update will no work unless device is on the beta program, Samsung is releasing it only via OTA. Sammobil does not have the file! Cross your fingers and keep looking tomorrow and… Read more »

Actually samsung is still running the beta program phase 6 because only those who participated in beta got it.
The funny thing is that samsung’s callin it public release. In other words it’s fake news

I’ve found and installed the Beta from Nov16, as Samsung is lazy with the official release…It’s running very well, few new options, nice UI, however did expect something more… hope that the official release will bring more options. The Beta from Nov does not download any other Beta updates which were released previously.

I have the SM-G930FD which is an Asian version of the duos, but I live here in the states and use it on AT&T. Do I still have to wait for the carrier or should I get this update sooner?
