It has now officially been more than a month since Google’s public release of Android 7.0 Nougat. While the latest Android update has been first bestowed upon the latest Nexus devices, it is expected to spread out. While LG V20 may be the first non-Nexus Android to be updated, Nougat for Galaxy S7 and S7 Edge is well on its way. Traditionally, the South-Korean company is expected to update the Galaxy S6 and Galaxy S6 Edge to Nougat as well. However, Nougat for Galaxy S7 and S7 Edge will be the first to roll out, and reports suggest that is well on its way. The current generation of flagship devices from Samsung have popped up on multiple listings on Geekbench. The listings highlight the details of the device, but the “Operating System” section is highlighted as “Android 7.0”. Although there are plenty other listings as well that put Galaxy S7 and S7 Edge on Android 6.0, but this is enough to hint that the testing phase has begun. Despite being a report with Geekbench listings to back it up, it is hard to conclude when the OTA will hit the devices. You can also keep an eye out when Nougat for Galaxy S7 and S7 Edge will be available on our Samsung firmware platform. We will keep you posted on all the improvements and new features that come with Android 7.0, especially for the Samsung flagships.
