Android 7.0 Nougat has been out for several weeks and the first manufacturers are starting to implement the new operating system on their smartphones. This also includes Samsung. The company from South Korea is currently working hard to test Android nougat on the Galaxy S7.Previously, Google was provided with a Dev Preview, which should allow initial tests and adjustments. Therefore it is currently the most exciting question as to how long the test phase in the house Samsung will last.
HTC, Huawei, Samsung and the other manufacturers will probably work quite a while to integrate the new Android version into their own devices. Since the Dev Preview is now available for months, the time to rollout hopefully should be significantly shortened. The at least would be assumed after Android Marshmallow spread only very slow and thus attracted the displeasure of users.
New User Interface For Glaxay S7
Samsung will, however, do more than customize the user interface of the Galaxy S7 to Android nougat. In addition to the updated Android version owners of the current Galaxy devices seem to get also Grace UX, which has already been delivered with the Galaxy Note 7. This is at least the Sammobile. The new version of TouchWiz is also intended to optimize the always-on display, which is already the standard in Note 7. In this way, owners of a Galaxy S7 would like to wait a few weeks, if actually mentioned improvements occur.
Currently, we can not tell you exactly when Android Nougat is scheduled for the Galaxy S7. Samsung also wraps itself in persistent silence. However, we can optimistically assume that it will probably not be too long.
The first updates should arrive by the winter. But we continue to exercise patience and are glad that the Galaxy S7 and S7 Edge run so smoothly and without accumulation problems. That’s something.
