Beta testing for Android Nougat 7.0 will begin from November 9 on the Galaxy S7 and S7 Edge

7 November, 2016 Samsung Updates

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.
