Samsung may soon wrap up its extensive beta test of Android Nougat for the Galaxy S7 and Galaxy S7 Edge. A Weibo user recently shared a conversation from Samsung’s beta community, indicating the program was coming to an end.
Samsung rolled out its fifth version of the Android Nougat software Tuesday and pundits have noted it could be the final update for the program. Based on the timing, it appears all official Nougat updates for the Galaxy S7 will take place in 2017.
However, users should keep in mind Samsung may still have other steps in its Android development process to complete before an official rollout.
Typically Samsung sends official updates to unlocked models of its devices first. However, many carriers, including Verizon in the U.S. and Vodafone in Australia have shared details about their plans to update.
Most models of the Galaxy S7 and Galaxy S7 Edge are scheduled to update to Android 7.1.1 Nougat; however, some will update to Android 7.0.
The Samsung Galaxy S7 features a 5.1-inch (S7 Edge, 5.5-inch dual-curved) Quad HD display, a Qualcomm Snapdragon 820, a 4GB of RAM and 32GB or 64GB internal storage options with expandable storage up to 256GB, a 12-megapixel rear camera and 5-megapixel front camera, both with f/1.7 aperture and a 3,000mAh battery (S7 Edge, 3,600mAh).
