Android Nougat 7.0 finally begins rolling out to the Galaxy S7 and S7 Edge

12 January, 2017 Samsung Updates

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.
