Samsung Galaxy S7 and S7 Edge Start Receiving Android 7.0 Nougat Update
Highlights
  • Samsung earlier said it will directly push Android 7.1.1 Nougat
  • Company is rolling out update first to beta users
  • Samsung pulled the plug on beta program on December 30

In response to a user query, Samsung said in December that the company will be skipping Android 7.0 Nougat and will instead be providing the version 7.1.1 update directly to Galaxy S7 and S7 Edge Smartphone users. Even though the South Korean company has now managed to deliver ahead of its announced timeline for Android Nougat update, surprisingly it is reported to be pushing out the version 7.0 update.

The users on Android Nougat's beta version will be the first in line to get the update and will receive a 215MB update before it is rolled out to regular users of the devices, as per a report by Sammobile. The update is expected to be made available in more regions over the next few days.

Samsung was earlier anticipated to begin the rollout of the final version of Android Nougat on January 17, but now it seems like a timeline meant for non-beta users, as pointed out in the report.

In November, Samsung launched its 'Galaxy Beta Program', which allows users of the Galaxy S7 and Galaxy S7 Edge sample Android 7.0 Nougat before its public release. The company pulled the plug on this beta program on December 30 last year.

To recall, Android 7.0 Nougat brings along multi-window support, performance enhancements, improved battery life, and changes to notifications, among other new features.
