Android Nougat beta program for Galaxy S7/S7 edge ending, final version coming soon


Samsung has delivered the fifth Android Nougat beta version to Galaxy S7 and Galaxy S7 edge phones a few days ago, and word is that will be the last beta build before the final version goes live.

Reports coming from China claim the Android Nougat Galaxy Beta Program for Samsung Galaxy S7 and S7 edge is coming to an end, which means the final build will be released soon.

The information comes from different sources, but it hasn't been confirmed by Samsung yet, so take it with a grain of salt until it goes official.

Even if the fifth beta build of Android Nougat is the last to be pushed via Galaxy Beta Program, it might still take a few weeks until the final build will be deployed. However, that still puts Android Nougat for Galaxy S7/S7 edge on track for a January release.

Previous reports suggested both Galaxy S7 and Galaxy S7 edge will be updated directly to Android 7.1.1 Nougat, but more recent information refuted those reports as some carriers are only testing Android 7.0 Nougat builds.

Let's hope Samsung won't rush the release of Android Nougat for the Galaxy S7 and Galaxy S7 edge, as we don't want any critical bugs to start affecting these devices after the update.
