Samsung isn’t the Speedy Gonzales when it comes to updating to the latest Android OS, but owners of flagship phones have a reason to celebrate. This is because their devices will be given preferential treatment. This means Samsung Galaxy S7 and Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge are likely to get the Android 7.0 Nougat update soon.
Soon, however, still doesn’t have a definite date. But it could happen at any time, especially because a Nougat-powered Galaxy S7 has already made an appearance on Geekbench. This means Samsung is testing Android 7.0 Nougat updates on the Galaxy S7 and Galaxy S7 Edge.
Rumor has it that Google has given Samsung a kick in the butt, so Nougat should come to the Galaxy S7 and Galaxy S7 Edge before this quarter ends. This report seems pretty accurate.
It is also possible that the update will come with the Note 7’s Grace UX, particularly for parts that don’t involve capacitive stylus, with pressure points of 4,096.
What does this have to do with either the Galaxy S7 or Galaxy S7 Edge? Recent reports out of China dropped hints that the Grace UX will come to both flagship phones, including the Always-on-Display feature.
In a report in The Korea Times, Samsung is said to issue its first Nougat update to the Galaxy Note 7 2 to 3 months after it’s released in late August, which matches reports about Q4 release of Android 7.0 on Samsung flagship phones.
T-Mobile has confirmed updates for the Galaxy S7, Galaxy S7 Edge, Galaxy Note 7, Galaxy S6, Galaxy S6 Edge Plus, and Galaxy Note 5.
Once all the updates are rolled out to the flagship phones, the next in line would be the mid-range Galaxy tablets and smartphones.
