Samsung begins rollout of Nougat 7.0 for Galaxy S7 and Galaxy S7 edge in UK

Last updated:

Samsung began the general rollout of its Android 7.0 Nougat update for the Galaxy S7 and S7 edge, starting in the United States and said it hoped to release the final update sometime in January. That update is now making its way to the Galaxy S7 and S7 edge in the UK, where numerous owners of the two handsets have reported receiving the update, which is around 1.2GB in size.

For those who participated in the beta program, the final update doesn’t bring anything new, but for everyone else there are a lot of new features in Android 7.0 Nougat.

Samsung’s release notes highlight some of the features that await owners of both phones:

  • Provides new UX and various performance modes
  • Improved usability of the Notification feature and Quick settings button
  • Improved usability of the Multi window
  • Improve setting menu and AOD feature, addition of the Samsung pass feature
  • Efficient space for installation of downloaded apps, improved speed of system upgrade and app installation

As always, you should ensure that your data is backed up before installing the new version of the OS. While the update shouldn’t affect any of your data, it’s always best to be prepared in case of any problems during installation.

The company also says that “some apps that haven’t been optimised for Android Nougat might not work properly after the upgrade”, advising users to make sure they upgrade to the newest versions of those apps via the Google Play Store or Galaxy Apps.
