Google has introduced Android 7.0 Nougat a few weeks back, and it’s already available on some handsets such as the Google Pixel and the LG V20, among the few. Many key manufacturers plan to upgrade their flagship devices to the latest operating system.
Recently, Samsung revealed details about the Android Nougat’s beta test program for the Samsung Galaxy S7 in several countries, including the United States, United Kingdom, China and South Korea from November 9th.
In the United States, the company is even letting the users with a carrier-locked model — Verizon, Sprint, and T-Mobile users — to sign up for the beta test program as well. It’s a little strange that the unlocked variant in the US is not eligible for the update test, but at least we know that the handset will get the update once its ready and Samsung has made sure there are no hiccups in the software.
It’s unclear about the number of users who can join the beta test program to try Android 7.0 Nougat on their Galaxy S7, but at least we can now hope for the best that it’s under user testing and it won’t be long before the update is released for the handset across the globe.
Samsung said that the beta test will give users an “opportunity to experience new features and the latest UX based on Android 7.0 Nougat.”
We’ll update you as soon as we get to hear anything about the roll out of the update for the Galaxy S7.
