Samsung Galaxy S7

Samsung has temporarily stopped the roll out of the Android 7.0 Nougat update for the Galaxy S7 handset. According to the reports emerging from China, the company has halted the rollout of the update for the Samsung Galaxy S7 and Galaxy S7 edge due to the discovery of bugs.

There are reports that the new beta update for the Galaxy S7 Edge has been released in China. However, the Nougat beta program for both the Samsung Galaxy S7 and S7 Edge ended in December 2016.

With build number G9350ZCU2ZQA4, the latest Galaxy S7 edge beta update provides support for the new power saving mode including performance and stability enhancements. As of this writing, we don’t have any information as to whether the Android Nougat update rollout has been halted only in China or worldwide.

To recall, HTC has recently halted the rollout of Android Nougat update for its flagship HTC 10 smartphone due to bugs. With Samsung also stopping the OTA update, it needs to be seen whether the smartphone companies follow the standard quality control practices.
