Sprint starts rolling out Nougat for the Galaxy S7 and the Galaxy S7 edge

Those who own the Galaxy S7 and the Galaxy S7 edge on the fourth largest carrier in the United States will be delighted to find out that the carrier has now started rolling out the much-awaited Android 7.0 Nougat update for these flagship smartphones.

It’s not uncommon for carrier-locked handsets to receive updates quite a while after they’ve been released for the unlocked variants. Like its rivals, Sprint also holds up updates to perform additional tweaks before it sends it out. All of this results in additional wait for the users who just want to get their hands on the latest software as soon as possible.

This major update for the Galaxy S7 and the Galaxy S7 edge contains all of the new features and enhancements that Google detailed when it introduced Nougat. If you’re curious to find out how those features work on Samsung’s devices, look no further than our What’s New with Nougat series to get all of the answers that you seek.

Bear in mind that Sprint is currently rolling out Nougat for the Galaxy S7 and the Galaxy S7 edge to those who participated in the Galaxy Beta Program. Assuming that there are no hiccups it should expand the roll out to all those who own these handsets on its network over the coming days.
