Vodafone starts distributing Nougat update for the Galaxy S7 and Galaxy S7 edge in Germany

Vodafone has today started rolling out the long-awaited Android 7.0 Nougat update for its carrier-branded models of the Galaxy S7 and Galaxy S7 edge currently located in Germany. The upgrade, which weighs in at approximately 1.3GB, transports a flurry of added functionality to the handsets, including Samsung Pass and a revamped user interface.

It’s worth noting, however, that due to the amount of devices the upgrade has to reach, it’s being distributed in stages — so there’s a good chance it won’t arrive on your unit for a few days. At present, it would appear that the Galaxy S7 edge is the main focus as forums are filled with reports from users who’ve reportedly received the OTA, while only a handful of comments are circulating from Galaxy S7 owners.

If you own a Vodafone variant of the Galaxy S7 or Galaxy S7 edge and would like to see if the update is ready for your device, simply head into Settings » About Device » Download Updates Manually. Alternatively, you can always wait until you receive an alert instructing you to install the firmware, but it may take a little longer to arrive.

Nougat

Thanks, Henk!

Still waiting on Vodafone s7 edge

For months there have been e.g. On the PixelC the Android 7.1.1. And what makes Samsung: it does not get a month-long go and then makes a week-long hype, if one or the other country is equipped with Android7. All the appointments are moving without end, the users of the current Samsung TOP model are waiting and can not use the new features.
It is a tragedy game …

I fall for it every time. I upgrade and think about other phones but stick with Samsung because that’s what I’ve always had, then update time comes along and the one shortcoming is blatantly highlighted. Nougat came out last summer and is currently on 7.1.1. I’m getting frustrated waiting around for 7.0 for godsake! If there’s one thing that should be sorted out for the S8 is bang up to date updates asap not 6 months later!

Hey samsung wake the fuck up and send the update already. You said 17th and it’s 27 and only 4 countrys and the upgrade from operators. We all know you working group on your next crapy phone but don’t forget about s7 already. We paid premium for the phone and we get the upgrade after the free once from operators and even after crapier phones from Chinese manufacturer.
Should have gotten the nexus phone. By the time samsung release the upgrade there will be android 8 already. So wake the fucke up and upgrade the phone.

so the branded firmware which you’d think requires the unbranded firmware to be released first, comes out BEFORE the unbranded firmware does

which dumbass at samsung looked at this and thought that this mess of a rollout system was a good idea holy fucking christ
