Samsung Galaxy S7 and S7 Edge Starts Rolling Out Android 7.0 Nougat
Samsung is renowned as being the biggest and the best smartphone manufacturer with great flagship devices such as Galaxy S7 and S7 Edge. While the two devices are considered as being the greatest smartphones to be released in 2016 in terms of design and hardware specs, Samsung has yet to roll out the new Android 7.0 Nougat operating system. This update is highly anticipated by Samsung users all around the world and reports are showing that the South Korean tech giant has finally started rolling out Android 7.0. Nougat, the catch is that only a few select devices received the update.
The reasoning behind this is that Samsung has to through a couple of soak tests before the operating system is rolled out to the wide public. In fact, Galaxy S7 and S7 Edge users already had a chance to get their hands on the Nougat experience by rolling in Samsung’s Galaxy Beta Program where three beta versions of Nougat were rolled out. Worth noting is that the Beta Program has been closed back in December thus meaning that Samsung is getting close to launch the update.
Samsung’s forums are filled with reports from Galaxy S7 and S7 Edge users who are saying that they’ve received the OTA (over the air) Nougat update which changed their firmware build number to “G935FXXU1DPLR” meaning that the device has been update to Android 7.0 Nougat and not the latest Android 7.1.1 Nougat version. We can be sure that all Galaxy S7 and S7 Edge users will receive the highly anticipated operating system upgrade once the testing processes end successfully.
Another reason to why Samsung might be hurrying up to launch the new operating system is because Mobile Word Congress is just around the corner and that’s the event where the company traditionally launches its upcoming flagship device.
