After Samsung released Android 7.0 Nougat to its Galaxy S7 and S7 flagships, users started complaining about various issues. Instead of trying to fix problems in version 7.0, Samsung has reportedly decided to release the Android 7.1.1 Nougat to the eligible devices.
Android 7.0 Nougat brought new features and customizations, but the excitement has vanished quickly when the Galaxy S7 owners started having problems with the display, who experimented not working ambient, although there were some users who said that the “wake” function has worked as a solution to them.
Other issues were with the Bluetooth connection, which prevented calls from going through, or which connected and disconnected, while others have reported that they were unable to connect to their car’s Bluetooth.
Also, the battery was draining fast, which is not something out of the ordinary, but it’s an annoying problem, especially if users spend a lot of time on the internet, chatting on messaging apps. This made Samsung skip the Android 7.0 Nougat update to its Galaxy S7 and S7 Edge, in order to avoid other scandals, because its image already suffered after the release of the controversial Galaxy Note 7 flagship which caught fire in different parts of the world.
However, the two flagships will be updated to Android 7.1.1 Nougat, although it won’t support Google’s digital assistant Cortana. Samsung hasn’t offered more details about this update, but we are pretty sure that the latest version will run without any problems. Reports say that the update will include a new camera app, image keyboard support and it will have app shortcuts similar to iOS 9’s 3D touch feature. The good news is that Google’s December 2016 security patch will be included in the new update.
Sony is also planning to release Android 7.1.1 Nougat to its Xperia line and currently, the update is rolling out to Xperia X (F5121), the Xperia X Dual (F5122) and the Xperia X Compact (F5321).
