The OnePlus 3 is an extremely well made smartphone, especially considering the price and it's about to get even better. Engadget has received confirmation from the head of OnePlus's software department, Brian Yoon, that a beta build for the OnePlus community will be ready by the end of November. What this also means is that the final build of Android 7.0 with the new Oxygen OS on top will be reaching OnePlus 3 smartphones all over the world via OTA by the end of 2016. Considering that 2016 only has one more month left in it, it would be safe to conclude that the final build will land on the OnePlus 3 next month.


OnePlus isn't a company that's known for providing speedy updates, but that seems to have changed thanks to a pretty big decision. They have merged the development teams responsible for maintaining and updating the HydrogenOS in China with their counterpart for the international OxygenOS to create one unified strong software department that will provide their customers with much faster updates. In fact, even the OnePlus 2 will receive the upgrade to Android Nougat, later in 2017.

It was made official in November that OnePlus would be updating its current-gen flagship handsets to Android Nougat by the end of 2016. OnePlus has kept true to that promise as Carl Pei (CEO of OnePlus) confirmed that the company has managed to release the final stable version of the OS on 31st December, 2016. The Oxygen OS v4.0 firmware based on Nougat 7.0 is now live and rolling out to OnePlus 3 and 3T smartphones around the world via OTA.


Some of the changes that this update will bring to the two devices include the following.
Improved shelf customization
Redesigned notification menu and settings overlay
The ability to reply to messages from the notifications menu
The ability to change icons in the status bar
Multi-window support
Support for custom DPI
Quick Launch for third-party applications


Available only to the OnePlus 3 earlier, the Open Beta 1 program is now also available to the OnePlus 3T, as announced by the OEM. If you want, the beta firmware is available for downloading and flashing manually onto your OnePlus 3/3T, but keep in mind that this will make your device a part of OnePlus's beta release cycle and the subsequent OTA updates will keep coming accordingly. If you don't want that then just wait a few days until the official, stable version arrives for your smartphone.

Smartphones are blurring the line between them and desktop computers nowadays and Xiaomi is about to blur that line even further with their upcoming Mi Note 2 Pro. According to a screenshot posted by AndroidPure, the upcoming handset from the Chinese manufacturer will sport beyond flagship grade specs like 8GB of RAM and a Qualcomm Snapdragon 821 CPU, clocked at 2.6GHz! The superphone will also have an in-built storage of 256GB and Google's latest and greatest Android OS Nougat will be running on it right out of the box. However, the only catch is that this "screenshot" could very well be a fake, much to our dismay.


As we now know that the previously rumoured launch date of the Mi Note 2 Pro (September 24) turned out to be wrong, it still is a bit of a mystery as to when it will actually be released. Since the Mi5s and Mi5s Plus was just launched in China, the date for the Mi Note 2 Pro's launch could be further away than rumors had originally predicted. In case you are not aware, these two are also packing the Qualcomm SD 821 chipset and enhanced camera capabilities that the OEM has declared to be better than even those sported by the flagship grade Samsung and Apple smartphones. Considering that the smartphones also cost about half of what an Apple iPhone 7 or Samsung Galaxy Note 7 would cost, things are getting really tight for the big boys.

We have an official confirmation from the president of Samsung Mobiles, Koh Dong-jin, that the flagship will start receiving its Android 7 updates by the end of 2016 or possibly even sooner. He specified the timeline as "two to three months," so that's November by latest. This is good news for owners and fans of the phablet, especially for those who expected the Note 7 to come preloaded with Android 7.0 right out of the box.


In the words of Koh Dong-jin himself, "It is very important for us to offer up-to-date information with the new OS, but what's more crucial is to build a stable and seamless platform for users. That's why we are planning to do enough beta testing before any OS updates." Perhaps this is the reason as to why the Note 7 came preloaded with Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow instead of Nougat like many rumors predicted it will. We do agree that it is better to take time in providing a less buggy and more stable experience to the users than just rushing out with a version of the latest OS that feels like a downgrade. However, with the LG V20 announced as the first smartphone to sport the seventh version of Android, Samsung better not delay it too much.

If @evleaks is right (which he mostly is) then Android 7.0 Nougat could be officially released this month. As the rumors regarding the Samsung Galaxy Note 7 have recently been hinting towards the smartphone being launched with Android Nougat right out of the box on August 2, could the Samsung device be the first phone to officially showcase it?


We have bad news for Nexus 5 owners though as Evan Blass is pretty clear in his Tweet that Google will only be updating its devices that came out after the Nexus 5. This means that if you own a Nexus 5, you will need to wait for custom ROM versions from modders if you want to experience Android 7.0 on your three year old Nexus.


We are looking forward to the graphical enhancements which the OS will bring to the table for Android users, but there are other exciting features that could be featured in the final build as well. For example, the Sustained Performance Mode, that is designed exclusively for developers. There's also the new system of upgrading your device with major updates, without having to wait for it to finish as the task will utilize a second partition on your phone's memory to download and install itself. Once you restart the phone, the changes will start to take effect. There are plenty of other features that we got a glimpse of in the five Developer Preview builds released so far, but we will have to wait and see how many of them actually make it to the final cut.


Saikat Kar (tech-enthusiast)



Now that Android Nougat is finally here for Nexus devices, we have a few cool but hidden features that for you to try out on the new OS if you have not already.


1. Turning on the System UI Tuner - On the Quick Settings menu, long press the Settings icon until it starts to spin and when it does, System UI Tuner is enabled. The experimental features in this section include Power Notification controls for restricting or allowing app notifications on a finer level. You can remove the entire Quick Settings panel altogether from the drop down menu as well.



2. Multi-Window Compatibility - Go to Settings > About > Software information and then touch the Build Number seven times and do it fast. Developer Options should now be enabled. Go back to the Settings menu and find the Developer Options. Turn on Force activities to be resizable, and you should now able to open any app on your phone in the multi-window mode, even if they were not compatible with it before.



3. Block spam calls - Go to your phone's Dial app and go to Settings > Call Blocking from the menu. Turn on Caller ID & Spam and also enter any number you wish to block manually. You should now be fairly protected from unwanted callers or spammers.

Android Nougat 7.1 is rumoured to launch with the upcoming Google Pixel and Pixel XL phones. Now that the October 4 press event is just two days away, we are pretty excited to see what the company has in store for us. However, if you want to experience a few of the features that Android Nougat 7.1 will bring with it, right now on your phone, Action Launcher 3 has you covered. The launcher now has multiple unique attributes of the next Nougat OS incorporated into it, thanks to the latest update.


Some of the features included in the update are Quickcuts (launcher shortcuts), round icons, All Apps drawer, new widgets, Google "Pill," tinted dock background, new folder styles from the Pixel Launcher, caret page indicator and much more. Action Launcher is free to download and use but accessing some of the features here will cost you a few bucks. If you are planning to get the LG V20, the Pixel phones or any of the upcoming smartphones with Android Nougat on them, this might not be of much interest to you. But for those of us who are using phones that will probably never see the actual Android Nougat OS running on their current devices, this could be a nice little taste of the future.


Saikat Kar (tech-enthusiast)



Android 7.1 is coming to your Nexus phone by the end of the month, albeit in the form of a Developer Preview. Now that Nougat 7.1 is confirmed by Google as the first maintenance release since it became available, we expect both new features as well as overall improvements.
The incremental update will add brand new features to Nougat like A/B system updates, support for image keyboards, Daydream, rounded icons and app shortcuts API access for developers. Unfortunately, Google Assistant won't be a part of this preview, unless you are using a Pixel phone. The virtual assistant will probably not be a part of even the final build on most smartphones for a while at least.


The Nexus 5X, Nexus 6P and the Pixel C will be the three devices that will be getting the Developer Preview this month. The Nexus 6, Nexus 9, Nexus Player and certain Android One phones will also be getting the final build, but Google hasn't mentioned them as eligible for the Developer Preview. The Pixel and Pixel XL on the other hand, are supposed to get exclusively updated to Android 7.1.1 (expectedly) or later in December.


Saikat Kar (tech-enthusiast)



The much awaited Android Nougat 7.0 update will start hitting Nexus devices around the world today, so here's an overview of the brand new OS from Google.


What to expect?


As there are more than 250 new features in the OS, let us keep it brief by highlighting the most prominent ones. Android 7.0 Nougat is built with virtual reality in mind at every step. Developers will find that it supports the development of VR applications in the best ways possible. Also, this will in turn, allow for the best quality VR experience on a mobile device till date.


The JID/AOT compiler in Nougat will enable faster app installations, lower storage consumption and an overall smoother and better experience in terms of performance from the underlying software. There is also the much talked about Vulkan API, which will take 3D game graphics to the next level without cutting down on the performance of the application. Other exciting features include Multi-Window Support, Direct Reply, Direct Boot, seamless updates and file-based encryption to ensure data security.


Apart from the devices that had enrolled into the Android Beta Program back when it started, the Google Pixel C, Nexus 9, Nexus Player, Nexus 6, Nexus 6P, Nexus 5X and General Mobile 4G (Android One) will start receiving their respective update files via OTA from today.


Saikat Kar (tech-enthusiast)



As Android 7.0 Nougat starts hitting Google devices today via OTA, here's a short comparison between Android 6 Marshmallow and Android 7 Nougat.


Android Marshmallow was released in October, 2015, but this year, Google hurried things up by unveiling it on March 9 and releasing it on August 22. Nougat will also follow a more regular and a slightly different approach to OS updates as Google announced that interested users will be able to install and test out the next Android version (7.0.1) before its public release, just like it was with the developer previews leading up to the final release.


Unlike Android M, Android N won't be landing on the Nexus 5, Nexus 7 (2013) and the Nexus 10 unfortunately. Android 7 will add native support for multi-window missing in Marshmallow, although OEM companies like Samsung have been able to do that for a long time now. A big change coming with Nougat that we liked a lot is the Android Instant Apps feature. In case you tap a link that requires for an app to be installed on your device, this feature will allow you to skip the time-consuming installation process by simply installing temporary files necessary for the required function to complete successfully.


Apps on the new Android 7.0 will take up less space and install faster. Graphics will improve significantly for games designed on the improved Vulkan API and virtual reality in general will receive a big boost as compared to what we saw in Android Marshmallow. There are tons of other features and improvements that you can check out here.



I love emojis and apparently, so does Google. The latest iteration of the Android OS adds 72 new emojis to the list. Apart from the new Unicode 9 emojis, there will also be more details such as skin color modifiers added to some of them. In fact, Google has actually made some of the emoticons clearly recognizable as male or female, while earlier they were gender-neutral. If you are wondering why they did that, it was done to give the emojis a human-like look to make them more relatable. This of course, takes a toll on the inclusivity of the emoticons worldwide, even with the modifiers.



Take a look and tell us if you like the new emojis or did you prefer the less human-like ones we used to see earlier. Personally, I think that while it may be more relatable for certain people, especially with the little modifiers, the original ones had a charm of their own. However, the new move will allow for better cross-platform recognition. This means that your friend on the iPhone will finally be able to see the emoji you had sent her without any compatibility issues.


Saikat Kar (tech-enthusiast)



As we reported earlier, Android 7.0 Nougat will be bringing in changes and modifications to the old emojis, along with adding brand new ones to the list. Here are a few of the prominent changes which you will see on your Nexus device soon.


Emojis with gender differentiation



The emoticons will now look more human in appearance and many of the previously gender-neutral characters will be gender-defined to make them more relatable. This will also make them recognizable across different platforms.


Skin tone modifier



In order to compensate for the fact that making an emoji human-like comes with the risk of it losing its interracial appeal, the new Android Unicode-recommended emoticons will now come with a skin tone modifier. There's also a hair color modifier attached to them to make the emojis look more personalised than ever.


New ones



There are multiple new emoticons/emojis embedded in the new Android OS; 72 to be exact. Avocado, paella, bacon, the black heart, boxing gloves, chestnut, Olympic medals, athletes, clown, face palm, shrug, selfie, fingers crossed and many others are a part of this list. Check the images to have a look for yourself.



If you are not really comfortable in going through with the complicated process of updating your device by manually flashing a ROM File or a factory image, there is actually an easier method to experience Android 7.0 on your Nexus device right now. You just need to opt into the Android 7 Nougat Beta program, now extended further by Google. Read on to find out how and if you are eligible for the beta.


· Go to the Android Beta Program portal on your device and sign in


· Remember to use the account that you have associated with your target Nexus smartphone, while logging in


· Scroll down and you should see a list of Your Eligible Devices


· The Nexus smartphone or tablet that you are trying to enrol into the Beta program should be on that list


· Tap on Enrol Device and follow the steps as directed from there on


· An OTA download should now begin which will upgrade your system to Android 7.0 Nougat


The list of eligible devices include Pixel C, General Mobile 4G (Android One), Nexus Player, Nexus 9, Nexus 6, Nexus 5X and Nexus 6P as of now. The good news is that unlike earlier builds, now you won't actually need to factory data reset your smartphone if you decide to opt out of the Beta program. It can be done by simply leaving the program from the Android Beta Program Page.



Android 7.1 Developer Preview 2 is now available for the Nexus 5X, Nexus 6P, Nexus 9 and the Pixel C. If your device is part of Google's Android Beta Program, you should receive a prompt for updating the device via an OTA update very soon. Just in case you are not enrolled into the beta program or if you are not willing to wait for the OTA file to come to your device, factory images are also available for users to download and flash manually. Post the update, the build number on your Pixel C should change to NPF26H. On the Nexus 5X and Nexus 6P, the build number should change to NPF26F.


The second preview brings support for the Nexus 9, as stated by Google earlier and this build is pretty close to what the final version of the Nougat 7.1.1 OS will look like when it's released in December. As explained by David Burke from Google, these are some of the changes that the second build brings to the OS.


1. Bug fixes and improvements in overall performance
2. Retains the developer features and level 25 APIs of Developer Preview 1
3. An experience that's almost identical to the one which will be provided by the final build

Anyone who is even mildly interested about the Android OS knows CyanogenMod for developing and releasing custom ROMs for multiple handsets across numerous brands. The best part is that they often bring latest versions of the Android OS to smartphones which will never receive the same from their original manufacturers. This time around, Steve Kondik has announced the name of the models that will be compatible with the latest CyanogenMod 14.1 beta Night Build, based on Android 7.1 Nougat. Take a look at the list below.


LG Nexus 5X
LG G3
LG G4
Motorola Moto G 4G
Motorola Moto G2
Motorola Moto G 3rd Gen
Motorola Moto G4
Motorola Moto G4 Plus
Samsung Galaxy S5
Xiaomi Mi 3
Xiaomi Mi 4
OnePlus 3
ASUS ZenFone 2
Huawei Nexus 6P


If your device isn't listed, do not be disappointed as more models will be added to the list in the coming week. Before you download and install it though, keep in mind that it isn't a stable version and the ROM still is missing a few features (Themes for example). Many of the glitches will be patched and missing features will keep getting added in the coming updates.

Officially, the Galaxy S4 and the Galaxy S5 would be lucky to get even so much as a maintenance update, let alone a full-fledged upgrade to Android Nougat. That however, doesn't necessarily mean these two smartphones will never experience the latest and the greatest of what Android has to offer. If you want to experience Nougat 7.1 on your Galaxy S4, try out the Substratum ROM based on the AOSP firmware, compatible exclusively with the LTE version of the Galaxy S4 (I9505). You can expect features such as Battery optimization options, Advanced Reboot, Ambient Display, Smart Storage, Launcher Shortcuts, etc. from the custom ROM.


Flashing the AOSP ROM on the other hand, will upgrade your Galaxy S5 to Android 7.0 Nougat, provided that you have the G900F LTE variant. In fact, there's even an AOSPExtended version of the ROM for the Galaxy S5, that's based on Android 7.1 Nougat. Follow the links to go to the concerned pages and follow the provided instructions carefully. Remember that flashing these ROM packages will require for you to root your device and in doing so, your warranty will become void (if it still is active of course).

Thanks to Vodafone Australia, we now know that Android version 7.1.1 is coming to all the eligible Nexus and Pixel devices on December 5 - 6. According to the Nexus 6P update advisory by the carrier, the first rollouts of Android 7.1.1 for the 6P (NMF26F) will begin on December 6 (Australian Time). Android Central even specifies the starting time as noon PST, December 5.


The report is in sync with what Google had declared earlier when it stated that Nougat 7.1.1 will be ready for release in early December. Also, as carriers usually have access to OEM updates before their official release in order to customize them for their customers, there is no reason to doubt the authenticity of the report. Additionally, the OTA file will also contain the SMR release from Google for the month of December. This one will be the first big update for the recently released Pixel phones and other manufacturers will finally be able to utilize Android 7.1.1 for upgrading their own smartphones.

Originally scheduled to be released on December 6, the first update file to Android 7.1.1 Nougat is already being rolled out by Google to a very specific smartphone; the General Mobile 4G. We are surprised that instead of the Pixel or the Pixel XL, it was the General Mobile 4G (Turkey) that received the update first.


The file contains the latest Android SMR patches right up to the month of December. Since there have been no announcement or post from Google about this yet, we are not entirely sure about all the details as of now. Nevertheless, the screenshot you see below was taken of a General Mobile 4G phone, which shows us that the update will be a 240.6MB download. Keep in mind that the files will greatly differ in size, depending on the model concerned. For example, Vodafone Australia had earlier declared some details about the upcoming Nougat 7.1.1 upgrade for the Nexus 6P and that was a 650MB OTA download.



Other devices that are scheduled to get upgraded to Android 7.1.1 directly from Google are the Pixel, Pixel XL, Pixel C, Nexus Player, Nexus 9, Nexus 6, Nexus 5X and Nexus 6P. Head over to http://forum.youmobile.org/downloads/ to find all the latest updates for your smartphone.

It has now been almost five months since Google publicly released Android Nougat 7.0 on August 22, but not all OEMs have managed to update their smartphones to the latest and greatest from Android yet. Unfortunately, some of the low to mid-range handsets will in fact, never even receive the update. Nevertheless, let us now look back and take a look at some of the smartphones that were fortunate enough to be upgraded to Nougat in these five months or so.



Nexus 5X, Nexus 6P and Pixel C: Eligible units began to get updated to the first build of Nougat v7.1 Developer Preview on October 19.



LG G5 on Sprint: Just after a month since the first of the Developer Preview builds went live for the Nexus phones and the Pixel C tablet, the Sprint version of the LG G5 started to receive its Android Nougat 7.0 update from November 20.



HTC 10: Although HTC One M9 also received the Nougat package just a few days later, the HTC 10 was the first HTC smartphone that started to receive the OTA update from November 25.



Sony Xperia X Performance and Xperia XA: We are not entirely sure on which date it started, but both the Sony phones were among the first to tout Android Nougat from somewhere near the end of November.



Nexus official release: All eligible Nexus devices began receiving the final public version of Nougat 7.1.1, starting from December 6.



Sony Xperia X, Xperia X Compact: Sony delivered the Nougat update to the two smartphones on December 16.



Google Nexus 9 (T-Mobile), Moto Z and the LG G5 (Canada): December 20 was coincidentally the day on which all these smartphones started to receive the update via OTA.



OnePlus 3 and OnePlus 3T: Keeping true to their promise of releasing the update by 2016, OnePlus managed to roll out the Nougat update for its latest flagships just in time, on the last day of the year.



Samsung Galaxy S7 and S7 Edge: Although January 17 is set to be the official release date for the Nougat update, reports have confirmed that many users have already received the final Nougat build, starting from January 12.


Did we miss out your smartphone? If we did, let us know which one it was in the comments.

OEM manufacturers might be struggling to get even Android Nougat 7.0 to their latest devices, but as expected, Google is way ahead of the curve. The internet giant has just started to roll out Android Nougat 7.1.2 for a select number of devices which are rolled into the Android Nougat Beta program. This is of course, a beta version only and there will be more incremental updates before the final version is ready and rolling out.


The list of eligible devices includes the Google Pixel, Pixel XL, Pixel C, Nexus Player and Nexus 5X at this point of time. The Nexus 6P is also on the list, but it will take a while longer before the Google flagship from 2015 starts receiving the beta update. If you did not roll into the beta program and would simply like to flash the 827.9MB file manually, download the firmware from here. Keep in mind though that the ROM files are only available for the Pixel, Pixel XL, Nexus Player and Pixel C right now.

Customers who bought the LG G5 flagship smartphone this year will get a chance to test out the upcoming Android OS version 7.0 Nougat before anyone else. However, there are two catches to this; you will have to be in South Korea and even then, the number of people chosen for the beta testing will be very limited. When LG means limited, they mean it as the total number of smartphones which will be allowed in the closed beta program is just two thousand.


The user will need to download and install an app called OS Preview from the Play Store in order to get registered for the beta program, if they are chosen. Needless to say, if you are in the US or in any other country for that matter, the application will not be found on your version of the Play Store. Although LG has not mentioned anything to indicate that the preview will also be made available in other countries, we are hoping that it might be so later on.


Saikat Kar (tech-enthusiast)



The update to Android Nougat 7.0 for the LG G5 is now being rolled out as you read this. It was expected as an Australian carrier named Optus had revealed earlier that the OS was being tested on the G5 and is almost at the verge of being ready for a final release. However, as of now, we have reports which state that the update is only available in South Korea. As confirmed by LG, it will also be hitting models all around the world in the next few weeks and more information will become available on the package locally, in respect to the geographical region concerned.
In the official statement at a press conference, this is what LG pointed out;


"At LG, we know our customers want the best, most up-to-date mobile experience,"


"Getting software updates to our users faster than the competition is our way of demonstrating that LG is committed to supporting our products and customers to ensure they have a positive ownership experience."


We must admit that we are seeing a much faster approach to providing updates to their flagship smartphones from the big boys such as Samsung and LG this time around. Don't forget that beta-testing of Android 7.0 will begin for the Samsung Galaxy S7 and S7 Edge from November 9 as well, and the final build could be hitting the two devices all over the world by the end of 2016 or early 2017.

Although LG V20 was the first phone to sport Android Nougat 7.0 right out of the box, the LG G5 has only just begun to receive its first taste of Nougat since last week, when the Sprint versions began to receive it via OTA. Reports all around have confirmed that the T-Mobile version of the LG G5 has just started to receive the 1.2GB OTA file. As expected, the update package also contains the November security release.



Even though the details or the news itself has not yet been updated on the support page of T-Mobile, users on Reddit and XDA Developers Forum have revealed the build number to be NRD90U. In case you want to search for it manually, go to Settings > General > About phone > Update centre > System update > Check for update. In case it has already landed on your LG G5, we recommend using a Wi-Fi connection to download the rather large file. We are pretty sure it's more or less the same build that we saw on the LG V20.

No one can deny that there is an almost irresistible charm to getting upgraded to the latest version of the Android OS and if you happen to own a Motorola phone, we have good news for you in that line. Motorola phones have always been among the fastest in the market to get the latest Android updates and staying true to that tradition, Moto has made it official that multiple of its devices will be getting the big upgrade this year. The first smartphones in line for receiving the update are the Moto Z and the regular Moto G4. Check out the full list of Moto phones that will be upgraded to Android 7.0 Nougat below.


Motorola Nexus 6

According to a report by GSMArena, the Moto Z Droid and Moto Z Force Droid have started to receive the latest Android 7.0 Nougat update on Verizon. It has not yet been officially declared by the carrier, but reports are being received from reliable sources which confirm the authenticity of this news.


If your Moto Z Droid or Moto Z Force Droid is being prompted for the update, connect to your Wi-Fi and prepare for the download as it's a huge one at around 1.5GB. Once you have downloaded and upgraded the package successfully, the firmware version on the Moto Z Droid should change to NCL25.86-11, while on the Moto Z Force Droid, it should show NCL26.86-11.



Although the installation should only take about twenty minutes on its own, the downloading time will of course vary, depending on the speed of the connection. The upgrade will bring multiple improvements, as well as new features to the two Moto devices, namely the App Quick-Switch and the Split-Screen mode. As always, Lenovo Moto becomes one of the first manufacturers to provide the latest version of the Android OS officially.

The latest Nexus smartphones are already running on Android Nougat 7.0 and the upcoming Google Pixel and Pixel XL could be bringing a new version of the OS, aka Android Nougat 7.0.1 with them. However, as LG plans to release the V20 very soon with Android 7.0 right out of the box, one cannot expect Samsung to lag behind without being in the process of developing a version of the latest Android OS for their own high-end smartphones.


As far as we know, reports from XDA Developers and certain test results on the Geekbench benchmarking tool shows that Samsung is already testing out their ROM for stability. The Korea Times on the other hand, assures us that Samsung will be releasing their first Android Nougat updates towards the last quarter of the year (October - December). If you are on T-Mobile, you should be happy to know that the carrier has even confirmed that the following handsets will surely be updated to Nougat; Galaxy S6 Galaxy S6 Edge Plus, Galaxy Note 5, Galaxy S7, Galaxy S7 Edge and Galaxy Note 7. To know more details head over to GottaBeMobile.

As expected, Samsung has decided to follow the same strategy as it did last year with the Galaxy S6-series. What this means is that just like the S6 range of smartphones had the option to download and beta test Android 6.0 Marshmallow on them, the S7-series will also enjoy the same beta-testing option this year with Android 7.0 Nougat. In fact, the beta version of the Nougat OS could be going live in the UK as you read this. Even though the source only reports the S7 Edge having the option, the S7 is also on the same list in all likelihood.


In order to sign up for the program, you will need to download and install the Galaxy Beta Program application from the Galaxy Apps Store and onto your S7/S7 Edge. Now you should see an option to enrol for the Nougat beta-testing in the app, but it isn't live yet and will probably go live only after Samsung makes it official. When the registration becomes available and you complete it, keep your fingers crossed because they will definitely not select everyone.

After Lenovo Moto just made it clear as to which are the models that the company is going to upgrade to Android 7.0, we decided that our readers should also be informed about the Samsung devices which are sure to get upgraded to Android 7.0 so far. As one would expect, the list mainly comprises of recent flagship-grade smartphones.


Samsung Galaxy S6
Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge
Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge Plus
Samsung Galaxy Note 5
Samsung Galaxy S7
Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge
Samsung Galaxy Note 7


The availability of the updates will of course differ, depending on the region, the model and the carrier. You should also note that in addition to the ones mentioned here, the list will stretch as more recent phones are released. In fact we are pretty sure that even mid-range phones will be launched with the latest OS preloaded, as 2017 progresses on. In the meanwhile, you can try out a feel of the OS by downloading Action Launcher 3.

The beta version of Samsung's Android Nougat 7.0 based firmware for the S7 and S7 Edge went live on select devices in China, South Korea, the UK and the US about a week ago and some of them have even started to receive the second build by now. The good news is, Samsung could also be extending the program to other countries as well, according to a report by SamMobile.


In what was a conversation between a Samsung Philippine's Customer Support executive and one of the aforementioned site's readers, it was indicated that Philippines could be next in line to receive the opportunity to test out pre-release versions of the Android 7.0 based firmware on the Galaxy S7/S7 Edge. While this little piece of info only concerns the devices in Philippines, we cannot help but feel that it could also be applicable to other regions as well, albeit a while later.


Nevertheless, this chat is far from being "proof" to the fact that the Beta program will be extended to Philippines, let alone other regions. In case it does prove to be so, rest assured that we will let you know as it happens.

It seems that the much awaited update to Android Nougat 7.0 for the Galaxy S6 isn't as far away as it was previously thought. A recent score on the Geekbench 4.0.3 benchmarking app clearly shows the Galaxy S6 running on Android 7.0 Nougat. Samsung usually tests out its devices with the latest Android OS on popular benchmarking apps, prior to releasing the final version. Therefore, the final build might be ready to roll out sooner than we thought.



Although the phone is almost two years old now, the scores are still pretty impressive at 1369 for Single-Core and 4577 for Multi-Core. They are in fact, even higher than what we are used to seeing on the Android Marshmallow versions. Then again, the entire thing could be fake as the Nougat update is still at its beta stage even on the S7 and S7 Edge.



The results were reportedly found on GFXBench, which seems to have removed the report from their database since then. Check out the screenshots, as published by GalaxyClub to take a look at what we are talking about here.

It has been just a week or so since the first build of the beta went live for the S7 and S7 Edge in Europe and they have already released the second build in Europe! This package will come to the eligible smartphones as an OTA update, just like the first build. The changes that the 92MB file brings to the basic build are mainly improvements in stability, performance and minor bug fixes, rather than any significant new features that are worth mentioning.



Incidentally, today also marks the date when the first version of the Nougat beta build went live in China for eligible users of the Galaxy Beta Program. South Korea is yet to receive the second build from Samsung, even though it was the first country to receive the initial beta build. Nevertheless, irrespective of your device's location, if it has been selected for the Galaxy Beta Program, all builds of the beta Nougat program will come to your S7 or S7 Edge eventually.

While it isn't surprising to know that an upgrade to Android Nougat is being prepared for the Galaxy Note 5 as Samsung did mention that they were going to do so earlier, it's good to know that they have included the Galaxy Tab S2 in their Nougat update list as well. Reports from reliable sources are indicating that a firmware based on Android N is being prepared for the both the devices right now. Unfortunately, no one can confirm when the firmware will be ready for OTA rollouts. If we were to guess, we would say that it won't be until we are well into 2017.

 

In the meanwhile, Samsung is already testing out the beta versions of its Android 7.0 based firmware on a limited number of Galaxy S7 and S7 Edge smartphones. In fact, those that have been selected for the Galaxy Beta Program have already started to receive the second build of the firmware via a second OTA update as you read this. For a complete review of the current Nougat 7.0 UX running on the S7/S7 Edge, check out this awesome video by XEETECHCARE.

You probably already know that both the S6 and the S6 Edge are going to get upgraded to Nougat 7.0, but what you might not know is the fact that the firmware for the two models is already well into development. In fact, the two handsets are probably next in line right after the final build of the Nougat OS goes live for the S7 and S7 Edge next month or early next year. Even so, it will probably be a month or two into 2017 before Samsung is ready to roll out Nougat to the S6/S6 Edge users.


As per reports, the build number of the Nougat based firmware is currently XXS5DPK7, which is of course, subject to change before Samsung releases the final build for its last year's flagships. It will be interesting to see if they bring the Grace UX even onto the S6 line-up via the update package. Unfortunately, there is no beta program going on for S6 users to opt for and check Nougat 7.0 out. That is a perk which only the S7 and S7 Edge users will enjoy for now.

As promised by Samsung, the beta version of Android 7.0 Nougat is now live for the Galaxy S7 and S7 Edge, but unfortunately, it is only available in South Korea at this moment. Even though multiple reports had confirmed that the UK would be the first region where Samsung will start the beta testing from, they turned out to be wrong.


Any eligible Galaxy S7 and S7 Edge from LG Uplus, KT Corporation or SK Telecom will be able to download the 1.3GB (roughly) beta update, provided that they have signed up for the program and had been selected. A beta version of the Grace UX with features similar to those found on the discontinued Note 7 (Always On display for example) has made it to Nougat as expected.


The Good news for the particularly enthusiastic among us is the fact that a beta firmware based on Android 7.0 Nougat has now leaked online as well. We recommend waiting until Samsung starts to roll out the program to your region, but if you know what you are doing, you can give it a try at your own risk! In case you do flash it, the firmware version should change to G930FXXU1ZPK4 on the S7 and G935FXXU1ZPK4 on the S7 Edge.

As we had reported earlier, Samsung will allow a limited number of S7 and S7 Edge users to experience Android Nougat 7.0 as beta testers before its official release on the two smartphones. Today we have official confirmation about the news and we have even been given an exact date. The beta testing will be available for eligible users to download, install and use from November 9. The testing will go on till the middle of the next month (mid-December), at the end of which, the final build of the OS might become ready for official release.


If you have not already, download the Galaxy Beta Programme application from Samsung's own Galaxy Apps Store. Fill out the application form necessary to apply as a beta tester for the OS and keep your fingers crossed! After this, the beta version will become available for you to download from November 9 as OTA updates, provided you are selected for the testing. If you are indeed selected, Samsung will accept suggestions and feedback from you in regard to your experience in using the build.


As of now, reports suggest that the beta testing in the UK is only available to the unlocked versions, while in the US, the option is available to the versions sold by T-Mobile, Verizon and Sprint only. Strangely enough, the Olympic Edition and the Injustice Edition units of the S7 Edge will be left out of the programme.

Samsung has released the third update for the devices enlisted in their Galaxy Beta program for the S7 and S7 Edge. To the best of our knowledge, the update has so far been received only in the UK, although the same should be making its way into the other eligible regions soon as well. The third build comes in at a size of around 300MB, with the firmware version G935FXXU1ZPKK.


Here's a look at some improvements and changes that it brings over the current version.


1. The brightness slider can now be moved above the Quick Panel from its original position in the Notification menu
2. It is possible to choose the layout for the Quick Panel Toggles
3. Edge Feeds have been removed
4. Brings the November security patches with it
5. Improvements in stability and a less buggy experience
6. Some devices have "lazy" screens that light up later than they should on waking the phone



Let's see what the next build brings to the firmware and rest assured that we will keep you updated.

It has now been officially confirmed; Android Nougat 7.0 is coming to all phones in the Galaxy A (2016)-series. This of course, includes the Galaxy A3, Galaxy A5, Galaxy A7, Galaxy A8, Galaxy A9 and Galaxy A9 Pro. Currently, all of these are running on Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow. Keep in mind that even though the update is coming to all of them, they will not be rolled out at the same time. In fact, Samsung cannot be expected to release Android 7 for any of these phones until it has released the official final version of the Nougat based firmware for the Galaxy S7, Galaxy S7 Edge, Galaxy S6, Galaxy S6 Edge, S6 Edge+ and the Note 5.


If you are wondering if the original Galaxy A-series of smartphones are going to get the update to Nougat from Samsung, we are sorry to inform that the chances are not good, unless you flash a custom ROM.

Although some of these features may not make it to the final version of the firmware, let's take a look at the best of what we have seen so far in the beta builds of the Android Nougat 7.0 OS for the Galaxy S7 and Galaxy S7 Edge.


The New Look - Everything from the app icons and fonts, to the general color scheme of the device has been changed. Although opinions may differ, we think it looks better now than it ever did before.



Blue Light Filter - This will help relieve the pressure usually accumulated in our eyes from spending long amounts of time looking at a phone screen.



Changes in the Notification Panel - You can rearrange the icons in the Quick Settings panel, change the grid size and move the brightness slider around. A revamped notification panel will also allow you to reply to conversations right from the notifications menu.



Resolution Scaling - You will have the option to choose between 1280 × 720 (HD), 1920 × 1080 (Full HD) and 2560 × 1440 (QHD) resolution for your phone's display, with the default set at 1080p for better power-efficiency.



Put to Sleep - This one is a very useful feature which lets you stop an app from auto-starting, receiving updates, using power in the background or send you push notifications by just long pressing on the icon and choosing, "Put to Sleep."



Performance Mode: The performance of the S7 or the S7 Edge can now be put into the following gears, depending on the task at hand.



Normal: 1080p, video enhancer on, game launcher on, game tools on


Game mode: 1080p, max brightness, game launcher on, game tools on



Entertainment mode: 1440p, max brightness, video enhancer on, UHQ upscaler on



High performance: 1440p, max brightness.


There are plenty of other tweaks, both big and small and we are sure to see a few more before the final build is released.

We have good news for you today as Samsung has confirmed that when they are ready to launch the final version of the Nougat OS for the S7 and S7 Edge, they will launch v7.1.1 Nougat directly. Although Samsung is checking out Android 7.0 through the Galaxy Beta Program at the moment, they have affirmed in a reply to one of the beta testers, that when the final version of the firmware does come out, it will be based on Android 7.1.1 Nougat.



This is particularly good news for those of us who were worried that by the time Samsung manages to release Nougat 7.0 for the S7 and S7 Edge, it might become slightly dated. Some of the changes that 7.1.1 vanilla brings over the 7.0 vanilla include some more emojis, Home screen app shortcuts and long pressing of certain app icons to bring up more options. However, we still have no convincing news as to when Samsung will be ready to release a public OTA update to the latest and greatest from Android. Nevertheless, it cannot be more than a month or two from now.

Samsung has just started to roll out the fourth update for the S7 and S7 Edge smartphones that have been signed up for the Android Nougat Galaxy Beta Program. As the smallest OTA update (280MB) in the series yet, it brings bug fixes, improvements in stability and removes the Samsung Notes app from the firmware. We are guessing that this change has been brought about in light of the fact that Android 7 now supports Samsung Notes. In case you do not like the fact that this update removes the Notes app from your phone, you can simply install it back onto your device from the Galaxy Apps Store or the Google Play Store. We suggest backing up your data to your Samsung account before proceeding with installing the latest beta in order to keep your Notes data from being erased.


Gaming and browsing have been improved according to SamMobile, and the name of the previous beta firmware (Samsung Experience) has been completely removed from this one without a replacement. If you are signed up for the Beta Program, you will be prompted to download the OTA file as soon as it reaches your device, but you can always make sure by checking manually from Settings > About device > Software Updates.

In an age and time when even premium flagship phones lose the eligibility for technical support after two years and lesser phones are forgotten much sooner, we have excellent news for you today. We knew that the Galaxy A (2016)-series was going to get the Nougat update from Samsung in 2017, but as it turns out, even the original Galaxy A-series isn't out of Samsung's support yet; at least not the A5 anyway.


In an official confirmation, Australian carrier Optus has stated that a Nougat build for the original Galaxy A5 is at its testing stage. They further elaborated that an OTA update which will deliver the final build to the A5 original should roll out by the end of next month. Considering that the Galaxy A5 has already received two major upgrades in the form of Lollipop and Marshmallow, the fact that it will receive Nougat is something that almost sounds too good to be true. If you are wondering if the same will be applicable to the Galaxy A5 handsets in other regions as well, I guess that's something which we will just have to wait and find out.

Samsung has officially confirmed that the Galaxy Beta Program which they had launched earlier in the year will be over by the end of the day. This confirms a report which was circulating on Weibo since yesterday. The confirmation was found in a Beta Notice which reads the following.


"Galaxy Beta programme is ending. (Dec.30 24:00)
Dear customers,
Galaxy Beta programme will end on 12/30 by 24:00 PM.
We would like to thank you for the interest and affection shown during this time, We will try to apply most of the useful opinions shared by all of you in official Nougat OS version.
After the end of Beta programme
-There will be no new Beta version release.
-There will be no individual feedback related to 'Error report' & 'Suggestion' and there is a plan to manage it via "community" only.
We would do our best to distribute the official version in January as soon as possible.
Thanks for all your support during this time and wish you all a very happy and prosperous new year.
Happy New Year ~~
Galaxy Beta Programme Team"


If things go as Samsung has it planned, then the final build of the Android Nougat OS will start rolling out to the Galaxy S7 and S7 Edge by January, 2017. The good news is that the Nougat firmware updates for the two flagships will be based on the latest Android v7.1.1. Were you a part of the Beta program? If you were, what changes are you waiting to see in the final build?

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? Let us know what you think in the comments.

According to a new report published by SamMobile, the much awaited final Nougat update could see the light of day, starting from January 17. The report was literally "retrieved" after converting the piece of information to Spanish from the original source, which was in Turkish. In order to make things easier for our readers who are not familiar with the language, here's a rough (very crude!) translation of what the text in the image means. Keep in mind that the oddities are a result of two machine translations across three different languages, therefore, some of the grammatical and spelling details might be totally off!


"71 = 1 E Translated from Turkish
.7 Dear Sir,
I've used SM is predicted G935F Go dolo of your device to be released as Android 7.0 updates. Of January of 17 of nougat.
Agreed with the competent authorities We would like to reject your comments
OB1. Mnoranuest, - lelas,
All your questions and problems. Ask us to report again.
Thank you for your interest in Samsung Electronics Turkey Customer Service"


The conclusions to be drawn from this garbled translation are the following facts:


1. The Android Nougat 7.0 update mentioned here, concerns the SM-G935F, which is the European variant of the Galaxy S7 Edge.
2. The rollout may start from January 17, at least in Europe.
3. As per the screenshot, the base Nougat version will be 7.0 and not 7.1.1, or at least not in Europe anyway!
4. Online translations can turn out to be pretty confusing!


In case you are not aware, there have been reports of a very limited number of S7 and S7 Edge smartphones receiving the update already, check it out here for more deatils.

It is now official; no more beta updates or soak tests. The much awaited update to Nougat is now en route to the Galaxy S7 and S7 Edge. The final release will hit your device anytime in between now and the next few weeks, depending on your location. Also, if your S7/S7 Edge is running on a beta build of Nougat already, you will be upgraded with a much smaller 215MB file before the regular users who are still on the stable Marshmallow build.



Surprisingly, the final version of the update is built on Nougat v7.0 and not v7.1.1 like the previous report from a reliable source had suggested. It's also unexpected to see the OTA rollout begin an entire week before the scheduled date (January 17). We are guessing that January 17 is the date on which the Nougat rollout will begin for those that were not a part of the Beta Program. As you can probably guess, that would be a much bigger file. However, that is only speculation and verified information at this point.

In an official revelation via a blog post, Samsung has just disclosed the names of certain smartphones in its arsenal that the company is going to bless with the much-awaited Nougat update. Keep in mind that the names which you see on this list are only the ones that will be receiving the upgrade in the next few months (the first half of the year to be precise). What it means is that Samsung may and probably will update a few other models later in 2017 as well. If you want, feel free to check out the official blog post here; it also details the Nougat 7.0 update which Samsung has now started rolling out to the Galaxy S7 and S7 Edge.


• Galaxy S6
• Galaxy S6 Edge
• Galaxy S6 Edge Plus
• Galaxy Note 5
• Galaxy Tab A with S Pen
• Galaxy Tab S2 (LTE unlock)
• Galaxy A3
• Galaxy A8


According to Android Authority, "The list is rather short, and it's not clear if it's exhaustive or just a selection."


Also, check out this much more expansive list of Samsung smartphones that are scheduled for the Nougat update, according to reliable sources.
