Samsung details all new features coming with the Nougat update for Galaxy S7 edge
We already detailed some of the major new features that the Android 7.0 Nougat beta update will bring to your Galaxy S7 and S7 edge, if you manage to install it via the Galaxy Beta Program app in the Galaxy Apps catalog, but we have something even better to share with you now.
Coming straight from Samsung's Customer Consultant Guide slides, there are apparently no less than twenty new features and visuals that will be introduced with the Nougat software for your Galaxy S7 edge. Some of these, like the App shortcuts for default Samsung apps, or the multi-window mode, are inherent for Android 7, but many others belong to Samsung's new UX, and we aren't talking about the different iconography in the settings menu, or the notification shade background changes.
There is, for example, the ability to change the native screen resolution when you don't need all that granular detail, which would ease the work of the GPU, thus eventually have positive effect on battery life. The messaging app now allows you to classify texts by threads and contacts, and there are plenty of other changes coming with Nougat, which you can preview in the slides below.
