Most Samsung users have heard about the latest firmware that will be coming to Samsung devices – the Android 7.0 Nougat. The operating system was released in August as an OTA upgrade. It was first seen on Nexus devices.
There are several companies, however, that manufacture Android-based devices and these companies are working hard to bring the latest firmware to their devices.
Both LG and Samsung anticipate they will see Nougat sooner rather than later on their devices. It’s though Samsung will see the upgrade on the Galaxy S6 and S7 as well as the Note 5. LG has already released one device – the LG V20 – with the firmware. LG hasn’t released an OTA upgrade for its other devices, but it’ll happen soon.
If you use a Samsung devices, there are a couple of things you should do when you attain the notification to upgrade:
- Back data up before you download and install the firmware. Do this by copying files to your PC.
- Follow instructions and prompts that the installation brings up.
Bear in mind that the above mentioned Samsung devices are not the only ones to get the update. And, it’s possible that new generation of Samsung devices will have it installed.
The only devices that are not cleared on getting the upgrade include the Galaxy Note Edge devices and Samsung Note 4. These devices just got the 6.0 Marshmallow, so it’ll be some time, if at all, they get the Nougat.
