Development of Android 7.0 Nougat for the Galaxy S6 and S6 Edge reportedly underway
According to a new report by SamMobile, development of Nougat for the S6/S6 Edge is already underway, but an official release is unlikely to land before the end of this year. Prospects of a stable Android 7.0 release for the Galaxy S7 and S7 Edge arriving before 2017 are also slim, the publication claims.
Nougat Beta releases for the S7 and S7 Edge showcased some nice changes coming to future iterations of Samsung's proprietary TouchWiz UI, such as a more focused design philosophy relying on flat, streamlined interfaces. Developments in this direction could prove favorable not only for UI-user interactions, but also for the overall performance of the OS itself, as Samsung phones have had a record of offering quite a lot of proprietary bells and whistles not available from other brands, at the expense of performance and OS fluidity.
The revamped version of TouchWiz introduced in the Nougat beta updates for the Galaxy S7 and S7 Edge was received positively by our readers, but it is too early to say how much of the new changes and improvements will make their way to the Nougat builds for the S6 and S6 Edge.
