Users of Samsung Galaxy S7 and Galaxy S7 Edge will be in for a treat as the South Korean tech giant announced they will skip the Android 7.0 Nougat update and directly skip to the Android 7.1.1. They did not announce an update date but it is expected to hit devices real soon.
Some phones already include the 7.1.1 Nougat and such examples are Google’s Pixel series which includes the Pixel, Pixel XL and Nexus series, the Nexus 6P, Nexus 5X and Nexus 9. The update will feature a reset button, a new camera app, shortcuts, smart storage, moves menu and new emojis.
Some neat features of the new image keyboard make possible for users to send and receive images from preffered messaging apps. It can be used with GIFs, emojis and stickers as well.
The camera app displays features such as AE/FE locking, a smart burst option, automatic Exposure and Viewfinder grid modes. The Smart Storage feature enables users to free up some space by deleting backed-up photos on their devices. The Samsung Galaxy S7 and Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge will display these highly anticipated features as well.
As Android 7.0 Nougat only runs on about 0.4 percent of devices on active devices, it will be extremely anticipated to see how Samsung’s update to the latest software will impact the adoption rate.
People who take part in Samsung Galaxy’s Bet Program were allowed to test the newest Android 7.1.1 on their Galaxy S7 and S7 Edge devices and they didn’t complain about any major bugs or tweaks that were needed to be made to the system.
We hope for this update to arrive as soon as possible because it will bring some interesting features to the table.
