An Android 7.0 Nougat based update is reportedly rolling out to the Galaxy S7 series

5 January, 2017 Samsung Updates


According to a few reports online, Samsung has been spotted rolling out a Nougat 7.0 based firmware update to a few of the Galaxy S7 and S7 Edge smartphones. This is a bit surprising due to a couple of oddities. Samsung had recently made it official that their Galaxy Beta Program has ended and there will be no further beta updates for the S7 or S7 Edge. Therefore, this is definitely not an experimental update that's part of the beta program. Normally this would mean that Samsung has started rolling out the final build of their Nougat based firmware versions for the two flagship handsets. However, given that Samsung's final Android Nougat update was supposed to be based on Nougat v7.1.1 instead of v7.0, the situation becomes confusing.



Whatever the situation may be, the update is real and it brings the security patch for January with it. The firmware version is G935FXXU1DPLR and it will indeed upgrade you S7/S7 Edge's base Android version to 7.0 Nougat. Did you get prompted for any such updates yet?
