Even as Google releases Android 7.0 Nougat in various devices, it is not clear whether the OS will land on the Samsung Galaxy S7, Galaxy Note 5 and Galaxy S6 family.
The speculation is that the firmware is going to reach handsets faster than the Android Marshmallow transfer took place. We might be able to see the devices getting them early in the last month of the year.
Samsung is rumoured to be pushing Android 7.0 Nougat into the S7, S6 and Note 5 in the fourth quarter of 2016. Hence, those who own the devices might see an “update notification” by the end of the year.
What is the Android 7.0 Nougat schedule? At first, the beta variant of the firmware will be released by Google to a number of flagships, and then there will be a fuller release on a bigger scale.
Even though the official version about the final update roadmap has not been out, users have observed the Samsung Galaxy S7 operating Android 7.0 Nougat on GFXBench. If the rumours were to be believed, Google is trying to get the OS update into a number of phones.
Hence, this Google firmware is being tested in Poland on the Galaxy S7 and Galaxy S7 edge.
Android 7.0 Nougat could ramp up the Galaxy Note 5’s stylus capabilities, according to XDA Developers.
There are also rumours that Samsung is trying to overhaul the TouchWiz UI, which could be improved by Samsung through Grace UX to the Galaxy S7 and S7 edge. Grace UX was earlier part of Galaxy Note 7.
Inside reports affirm that before other devices, Samsung might roll out the firmware first to the Galaxy Note 5 and Galaxy S7.
The list of Samsung Galaxy Smartphones that are required to carry the “multi-feature, well-commended” OS from Google include Galaxy Note 5, Galaxy S6 Ironman edition, Galaxy S6, Galaxy S6 edge, Galaxy S6 Active and Galaxy S6 edge+.
The S7 family that will get the Android 7.0 update include Galaxy S7, Galaxy S7 edge, Galaxy S7 Batman edition, Galaxy S7 Active and Galaxy S7 Olympic edition.
But the latest Google OS will not be available to Galaxy On, Galaxy C series, Galaxy J and Galaxy A.
However, all these news details are not facts, only rumors and speculations. Hence, be on guard, Android fans! Give some handicap to the news you get.
