AT&T starts seeding Android 7.0 Nougat for Samsung Galaxy S7 Active
Android 7.0 Nougat continues to hit various smartphones in the United States five months after its official release. Today is a good day for those who decided to go for either Verizon's Moto Droid Z Play or AT&T's Samsung Galaxy S7 Active, as both smartphones are now eligible for the Nougat update.

AT&T recently updated the support page of the Galaxy S7 Active to reflect the new change. Starting March 7, the carrier has begun pushing Android 7.0 Nougat to the Samsung Galaxy S7 Active, rugged smartphone that's been released back in June 2016.

If you own the AT&T Galaxy S7 Active, then you'll want to check for a new firmware version NRD90M.G891AUCU2BQB2, which should allow you to update to Android 7.0 Nougat.

Besides the new features and improvements included in Android Nougat, the update also adds Samsung Cloud, Samsung Pass, and enables App Select in Setup and Transfer.

Also, the update should bring some network enhancements and Android device security updates. AT&T doesn't mention what security patch will be installed, but Samsung has already published the security bulletin for the March security update, so it might as well add the latest monthly security update.

Lastly, the carrier confirms the AT&T Address Book will be removed upon installing the new Android 7.0 Nougat. Keep in mind that the update weighs in at 1.58GB, so make sure you have enough storage before attempting to download it.
