Exciting reports have popped up in the technosphere that Samsung is scheduled to roll out the Android Nougat update early for their phones. However, patrons of the Korean giant should receive this news with not so high hopes to not end up being too disappointed. Remember that Samsung took much longer than expected to release the Android Marshmallow update to its Galaxy S6. Other phones and OEMs (Original Equipment Manufacturers) had already rolled out Marshmallow from 5 months earlier before Samsung updated their devices.
If this is going to be the trend, then expect Nougat to arrive later this year the earliest. The Galaxy Note 7 was supposed to be the first one to receive the Android OS update. However, since the company has permanently stopped selling this model due to the faulty battery issues, that has been taken out of the picture.
Now for the good news, rumor has it that the Galaxy S7 was spotted on the official GFXBench database running the Nougat 7.0 software. So there is a big possibility that Samsung is already running OS tests on Galaxy S7 and S7 Edge, and we can expect that the Android Nougat update will be released for these phones together with the latest Grace UX version.
Other reports also say that the South Korea company is rolling out the OS update for three devices by this year. These are the Galaxy S7, S7 Edge, and Note 5. The Galaxy S6, S6 Edge+, and S6 Edge are expected to get the latest Android software early next year.
The game of waiting for Nougat 7.0 to arrive in smartphones is getting more exciting as announcements of more Android devices receiving the update surface every day. Mobile phone users have plenty to be excited about, as the latest Nougat version comes with a bunch of cool new features.
