Samsung Galaxy S7 running Android 7.0 Nougat appears in online database
The Samsung Galaxy S7 Active is poised to receive an update to Android 7.0 Nougat. The smartphone surfaced in the GFXBench database running the latest version of Android, which means the update is in testing and being primed for a release in the near future. Samsung has already published beta builds of Android Nougat for the Galaxy S7 and S7 edge, so it's highly likely that the Active will receive a Nougat update around the same time they do. The company has committed to delivering the Nougat update for the S7 and S7 edge this January, so the Active should get it around this time, or a little later.

So far, the beta Nougat updates have added a fair bit of functionality to their designated smartphones. There are new features such as adding third-party app functions as quick toggles, improved battery saving, an overhaul to the Calendar app, a Video Enhancer feature for better video and sound quality, repositioned toggles, new Device Maintenance, screen resolution adjustments, and other goodies on top of all the patches and fixes. All in all, this should be a fine update when it's pushed out.

Really great news i hope it won’t be to far away from a roll out on the international models. Another good news by samsung is that Upcoming Galaxy S8 smartphone could run a PC. Source This leak is far from conclusive, but if Samsung hopes to snag part of the valuable enterprise mobile market, it could be a significant step in the right direction.
