Samsung Galaxy S7

Samsung has rolled out Android Nougat beta update for the flagship Samsung Galaxy S7 and S7 edge. However, the update will be available only for those handsets that participate in the Galaxy beta program. As of writing this, the beta update program is available for customers based in the UK and South Korea.


The latest update is not a major release. Hence, you need not have to expect any new features. The update mainly provides the required fix for the intermittent rebooting issue. Moreover, you will experience improved transparency for notifications on the lockscreen.


After you install the update, the wallpaper will be visible irrespective of the total number of notifications you might have. Moreover, the update is also available for the regular Samsung Galaxy S7 smartphone customers.

In addition to the above mentioned enhancements, the latest update provides device stability improvements, bug fixes and performance improvements.

The software update page has stated that the smartphone will tend to heat up during the update. This is because of the issues associated with data download and relevant behaviors. The page also prompts you to download the updates via Wi-Fi.
