Samsung Galaxy S7 and Galaxy S7 Edge Receive Android 7.0 Nougat From Verizon
We have great news for Samsung Galaxy S7 and Galaxy S7 Edge owners that have bought their smartphones from Verizon. The major network carrier has confirmed that it wants to upgrade the operating system of the aforementioned smartphones to Android 7.0 Nougat. Worth mentioning is that AT&T, T-Mobile and Sprint have already rolled out Android 7.0 Nougat to their Galaxy S7 and Galaxy S7 Edge devices.
Verizon Rolls Out Android 7.0 Nougat To Galaxy S7 and Galaxy S7 Edge
Samsung Galaxy S7 and Galaxy S7 Edge owners that are registered in Samsung’s Galaxy Beta Program have already had the chance to get their hands on Google’s latest operating system. All that they had to do was to provide Samsung with all the necessary feedback such as bugs, instability and glitches. Fortunately, the public version of Android 7.0 Nougat will finally arrive.
Even though Verizon is rolling this update later than other network providers, the update is the same. There won’t be any differences and the operating system will present the same features. Sadly, Verizon hasn’t announced if the update will include the latest Android security patch. Although, we do know that it’s going to include the February security patch which is quite important.
We advise Samsung Galaxy S7 and S7 Edge owners to keep their eyes peeled at their notifications panel because Android 7.0 Nougat should arrive any time now. Additionally, if too many days pass by and the update hasn’t arrived, Galaxy S7 and Galaxy S7 Edge owners can always check their “About Device” panel to see if the update is there.
Another tip we need to give Galaxy S7 and Galaxy S7 Edge owners is to download the new operating system through a stable Wi-Fi connection. This way, they can avoid unwanted interruptions and don’t inflate their data plan at the same time. Worth noting is that the smartphone should have at least 50 percent battery charge when the operating system is being installed. Nonetheless, even though Verizon wasn’t up on par with T-Mobile, AT&T and Sprint in terms of software updates its always better late than never. Maybe next time Verizon will not take its time and rush updates instead.
