Regular Nougat rollout begins for the Galaxy S7 and Galaxy S7 edge in China and the UK

Firmware
By 

Last updated: January 17th, 2017 at 11:01 UTC+01:00

It seems Samsung is sticking to its recent promise of rolling out the Nougat update on January 17th, as owners of the Galaxy S7 edge (and likely the Galaxy S7) in China and the UK are seeing a 1.2GB update on their handsets. The news comes from XDA, and it looks like the regular rollout for non-beta users has now begun. The January 17th estimate was given for the European market, so it’s possible that Samsung will be making the update globally available in a matter of days.

For those who participated in the beta program, the final update doesn’t bring anything new, but for everyone else there are a lot of new features in Android 7.0 Nougat. Have you received the update on your S7 or S7 edge? Do let us know if you have, and whether you see something new or different that we might not already be aware of.

Update: We can confirm that the update is indeed rolling out, as one of our Galaxy S7 edge’s has started receiving the update. At this time, it seems the update is only available in markets where Samsung had launched the beta program, so we’ll be hoping the company doesn’t make consumers in other regions wait too long.
