Google released the Android 7.0 Nougat update last August for Nexus 6 and users are already getting their sights on Pixel handsets with out-of-the-box Android N. With the recent list from Motorola and now from Samsung, enthusiasts are asking if Samsung Galaxy Note 7 and Note 5 will have the same treat.
Some of the Samsung devices that are confirmed to be getting the update are the Galaxy S6, S6 edge, S6 edge Plus, S7, S7 edge, Galaxy Note 5 and the controversial Galaxy Note 7.
Just recently, Samsung recalled all Galaxy Note 7 models and replaced them with new ones. This was because of burning issues in which some users have reported that their units exploded while being charged. However, the same problems occurred with the replacements that Samsung had announced that they are no longer selling or manufacturing this model.
With the devices on the list, it appears that almost all Samsung flagship models in the S series as well as the phablets for the Note series, and Edge variants will be getting the update.
However, there has been no official announcement on when these updates will be rolled out exactly. After the release of the Android 7.0 Nougat or Android N, the first models to get the update were Nexus 5X, Nexus 6P and Nexus 9 and with Pixel and Pixel XL being introduced with the Android Nougat in the package, Samsung seems to be lagging behind. But the Korean company has already made its mark in the industry and it will not come as a surprise if new features will be available for the update they are planning for their devices.
Case in point, the Samsung Galaxy J7 Prime is already surpassing high expectations with its features. And there have been talks that Samsung has already been testing the latest Android update on Galaxy S7. With this development, the roll outs for other Samsung devices will follow.
