It appears that Samsung Galaxy S7 and S7 Edge users are in for a big surprise as the company recently announced it won’t update to Android 7 Nougat but instead go to Android 7.1.1. They made no announcement as to when it would happen, but the update is likely to happen soon.

There are several phones that already have the Nougat 7.1.1. update – Google’s Pixel phones (Pixel and Pixel XL) and Nexus phones (Nexus 5X, Nexus 6P and Nexus 9) The update will include a reset button, shortcuts, smart storage, new camera app, new emojis and more.

The new keyboard feature lets users send and receives pictures through their preferred messaging apps. It’s also usable with emojis, stickers and GIFs. The camera app includes aspects like the AE/FE locking, automatic Exposure, small burst option and Viewfinder grid models. Users who enable the Smart Storage feature can delete photos that have been backed up to give their smartphone more space.

Both the Samsung Galaxy S7 and S7 Edge offer these highly-coveted features too.

As it currently stand, only 0.4% of all active phones have the Android 7.0 Nougat. It would be interesting to see if the Samsung update to it will change the rate of adoption.

Samsung Galaxy’s Bet Program users have been testing the latest Android 7.1.1 firmware on their devices – no complaints about huge changes or bugs have been associated with it. Hopefully, the update will be released soon to offer some new features to the market.
