Meanwhile, the high-end variant is expected to be the Galaxy X1 Plus, which is likely to offer Android 7.1.1 Nougat and feature a model number SM-X9050. One of these well-known tech entities is Samsung which have projected Galaxy S7 and S7 Edge for this superlative OS update from Google. Usually with any update, the initial rollout is a bit slow, so most owners of the Galaxy S7 and Galaxy S7 Edge will definitely have to be a little patient.
Samsung previously announced that an update would arrive on January 17, but it seems the company is rolling it out early.
In November 2016, we reported that the beta testing for the Galaxy S7 and S7 edge was kicked off.
However, Samsung made what could prove to be a disappointing move with the Nougat release.More news: Some law professors in MI don't like Jeff Sessions
Samsung Galaxy S7 is not the only smartphone scheduled to receive the Android Nougat upgrade. In addition, a recent leak suggested Android Nougat for Europe would commence on 17 January. Of course, we heard back in December that Samsung had finished beta testing the release and would be launch it this month, so this isn't much of a surprise.
Samsung is thought to be planning to break with tradition and unveil its new flagship smartphone at a standalone event in NY in April 2017.
Comparing Nougat's release to Marshmallow, Samsung started releasing Android 6.0 Marshmallow to its flagship devices in February past year - Google had released the public version of Android 6.0 Marshmallow in October. With the soak test going on full force, tech pundits are hazarding guesses that the global Nougat release for Samsung Galaxy S7 and Galaxy S7 Edge handsets could be in the offing. If you're not a beta user, your download might be larger or smaller.
Nougat brings a ton of new features to Android, like a split-screen mode, a revamped notification panel, user-adjustable UI scale, better power saving, new emojis, and many other changes.
