Samsung Electronics has released an Android Nougat update for both their Galaxy S7 and Galaxy S7 Edge devices. While I could not find an official statement from Samsung, some users have now started receiving an Android Nougat 7 update. Samsung is rolling out this major operating system upgrade to individuals that installed a Nougat beta version.
Also, the exact version is 7.0 and not most recent available version of 7.1.1. Supposedly, this update is rolling out to United States for now, with other regions receiving this update next week. This update is around two hundred fifteen megabytes in size.
There are two versions of this update possibly depending on what processor your device is using: G935FXXU1DPLT and G935FOXA1DPLT. This update was initially scheduled for January seventeen two thousand seventeen, but looks as if it was released a few days prior. Perhaps just to beta users that had installed Nougat beta version.
It is recommended that you backup your important information on your Samsung Galaxy S7 or S7 Edge, before you attempt this upgrade. Also, you want to make sure that your battery has a decent charge ie. around seventy five percent. You may want to plug in your charger during this upgrade.
To upgrade your drive, go to "Settings" and then "About Phone". Select "Software Update". Then you just download and install this upgrade to Android Nougat 7.0. Since this is quite a large download you may want to connect using WiFi if you are on a metered plan.
Finally, you want to make sure you have a decent stable Internet connection. This update might reboot your device multiple times.
