The upgrade transports all of the new features you’d expect to find baked into Nougat, as well as a slew of additional bug fixes and stability improvements.

The full changelog can be seen below:

  • OS upgrade – Android 7.0 Nougat
  • Provides new UX and various performance modes
  • Improved usability of the Notification feature and Quick settings button
