Galaxy S7 and S7 edge user manuals now show the Android 7 Nougat interface

Galaxy S7 and S7 edge user manuals now show the Android 7 Nougat interface
Earlier today, we learned that Sammy is finishing up on the beta program for its Android 7 Nougat update and will be pushing it officially to all Galaxy S7 and S7 edge phones in January. Apparently, preparations are definitely underway, as the PDF guides for the two phones are slowly being updated across Sammy's servers.

So, we now have the Galaxy S7 and Galaxy S7 edge user manuals refreshed with some of the new features in Nougat. In the pictures, we can see how the new quick toggles menu works — we get a tiny row of 6 icons when dropping the notification shade at first, but pulling down again shows us more toggles. The Always On Display has also been updated to show actionable notifications — a feature we saw on the late Note 7. The new camera app is also shown — we can see much simpler, swipe-based controls and there is a new feature, which allows you to lock focus in one part of the viewfinder and then set the exposure point at another spot. The Smart Manager has been reworked and is now called Device Maintenance but, from what we can tell, still works the same way.

Sammy says that it will look to distribute the Nougat update to the S7 and S7 edge “as soon as possible”, so here's our fingers crossed that we won't have to wait until the month's end. Are you excited for a little UI refresh with the Android 7 update?
