Samsung Galaxy Note 7 will be updated to Android 7.0 Nougat in 2 to 3 months

According to The Korea Times, Samsung confirmed that the Note 7 would receive an update to Android 7.0 Nougat "in two to three months." Thus, you should expect your Galaxy Note 7 (assuming you're buying one) to get an official taste of Nougat sometime in October or November. Reportedly, Koh Dong-jin, President of Samsung Mobile, talked about this during a Note 7 media event in South Korea. The Samsung chief said that it's "crucial to build a stable and seamless platform for users [ ], that's why we are planning to do enough beta testing before any OS updates."
The Korea Times also reiterated what's been previously reported: Samsung is planning to release a Note 7 variant with 6 GB of RAM and 128 GB of storage space (though only in China), and isn't yet ready to launch smartphones with foldable screens.
Until Samsung's brand new smartphone is actually hitting shelves, if you want to find out more about it, you should check out our Galaxy Note 7 hands-on.

At least iot won't need 9 updates to fix the other 8 updates that come out every week on iOS. iOS 9 is up to 9.3.4 and it is still having issues. I refuse to even install 9.3.4 on my iPad Pro, because 9.3.3 trashed one and Apple had to replace it. When an update comes out for Android, most of the benefiuts are under the hood. As long as my device is working as it did out the box, it will still do mor ethan even many brand new phones for at least 3 years. I rather my updates be slow, than be screwed up. So far no Android update I have done has cause me issues. I think its because they get double srutiny. First Samsung updates the firmware to work on their phone. Then the carriers makes sure the there are no issues with their own apps and network. Even though cariers like ATT and VZW have takne the longest with updates, none I have every downloaded from them has ever given me issues. T-Mobile either. My device will still work perfect until I get updated and I expect it will continue afterwards. I dont sit and stare at update release schedules on the edge of my seat waiting.

And it'll get Android O in 2019 if it even receives it at all.

"While LG will beat Samsung to the punch in releasing the world's first Android 7.0 Nougat smartphone (the upcoming V20 )," then what about Google Nexus series? they are meant to be launched with the latest version.

The only thing I want from Nougat is the Blue Light Filter scheduling feature, where I can set it from Sunrise to Sunset. Strangely, Samsung left the scheduling out with their implementation of the Blue Light Filter.

Hahaha this is precisely why I'm done with Samsung. Iris scanner, pretty design, luxury price ... No removable battery, smaller battery, no OS support — Samsung patterned itself after Apple's FU customer approach and it is paying off. Fans love being abused and neglected by brands whether it's a phone, a TV show or musician. It's just sales psychology to always leaving you wanting, don't you see that, lambs?

Smaller battery? The battery in the Note 5 was 3000MAH. so where is it smaller? if you're comparing the battery size of the Galazy S, whichisnt even the same phone as the Note, that you are stupid. Removable batteries in an age where we have battery packs and wireless charging and fast charging? You must be a dinosaur. Oh wait you're just hating. But here is a fact for you. 75% of the phones selling since 2011, don't have removable batteries. The few left that due have terrible batterylife to begin with. Next only a fool would compare bettery size of phones are are unique models. No OS support? Question. Has anyone here with a Samsung phone or any brand of phone, have ever need OEM tech support with the software? I have NEVER needed to call Apple, Samsung or even Google with any issues with software. EVER! You sound cleverly dumb!
