Samsung quietly rolls out Android Nougat update for some Galaxy S7 users

Samsung ended its Android 7.0 Nougat beta program for the Samsung Galaxy S7 and Galaxy S7 edge last month, and confirmed that the stable release will come to both devices by the end of January. It now appears that the South Korean company has started rolling the update out to some users, according to limited reports.

The new build's number is G935FXXU1DPLR and it comes with Samsung's January security patch.

Samsung quietly rolls out Android Nougat update for some Galaxy S7 users

Considering that Samsung confirmed that no new beta builds will be available, it's more than likely that what we see here is the final Android 7.0 build that will make its way to all Galaxy S7/S7 edge devices this month.

Releasing the update to select users is mostly an attempt by Samsung to test the waters and make sure everything works as expected. Despite having several beta updates and gathering a lot of feedback, when it comes to software, there's always something that could go wrong.

This information is not confirmed by Samsung, so it should be taken with a grain of salt, but with an official release knocking on the door, we're inclined to believe that the screenshot is legit.

Wait, didn't somebody say Samsung would go straight to 7.1.1?

Guess they were wrong.

My thoughts exactly. Hopefully this is a trial and not the final roll out.

So at last split-screen will come to the Samsung's high end devices. LOL

Now seriously:
Do not upgrade the OS on your smartphones, if you want they to perform good, as long as you have them..
At least not more than one time.
Do not fall into the media trap.

Are you talking about multi window? Because if you are I hope you're joking as Samsungs have had that feature since the Galaxy S3.

I'm not sure why stupid people like you still exist here, Samsung has had multiwindow which is much more advanced than split screen. And they've had that feature since the Galaxy S3 which is around 4 years back :/
