Ever since early January, Samsung has been running a beta test of its Android 7.0 Nougat update for the Galaxy S7 and S7 edge. Now that test is wrapping up, and Samsung has revealed when the rest of us might get the S7’s Nougat update.
Samsung is aiming to release the official Android 7.0 Nougat update for the Galaxy S7 and S7 edge in January. In a message to beta testers, Samsung said “We would do our best to distribute the official version in January as soon as possible.”
Of course, while Samsung is aiming to release Nougat for the GS7 and GS7 edge in January, that doesn’t mean that all models of those phones will actually get the update in January. That’s especially true of the US carrier versions of the GS7 and GS7 edge models, which could be waiting a bit longer as carriers put the updates through extra testing before releasing them to customers.
Images of Samsung’s Galaxy S7 Nougat update previously leaked out, giving us a preview of what to expect.
