Samsung Galaxy S7 And Galaxy S7 Edge Will Not Receive Android 7.0 Nougat Until early 2017
The Samsung Galaxy S7 and Galaxy S7 Edge were supposed to be two of the first devices from the South Korean multinational conglomerate company that will receive the Android 7.0 Nougat update. However, it seems that Verizon claims that this new operating system will not be released for the mentioned handsets before early 2017.
We remind you that Samsung has already released the Galaxy Beta Program in the US and UK where select Galaxy S7 and Galaxy S7 Edge owners can test out the Android 7.0 Nougat before it gets released to the public.
Unfortunately, if you own a Verizon Galaxy S7 or Galaxy S7 Edge, then you are not very lucky, because you will not be able to update it too soon. The mentioned carrier claims that these two handsets will not receive the new Android OS until early 2017.
It is good to know that in early 2017, only some users will be able to get the Android 7.0 Nougat on their Galaxy S7/S7 Edge. Verizon claims that only the BETA trial users will have their handsets upgraded to the Android 7.0 Nougat version when it will be available.
It’s not yet sure why Verizon has decided to cancel the release of the Android 7.0 Nougat to the Galaxy S7/S7 Edge, but we’re pretty sure that many customers are quite disappointed because of this.
