T-Mobile pushing the Galaxy S7 and S7 edge Android 7.0 Nougat updates to all users
We just got a confirmation from a reader that, after the Nougat beta users, T-Mobile is now pushing the Android 7.0 OTA update to all owners of Samsung's Galaxy S7 and S7 edge on its network. 

AT&T is also confirmed to have started the process, so the update took about a month after Samsung announced the official rollout on Januray 17th to arrive on the US carrier versions, and three months after the source code was distributed to manufacturers. That's about the usual timeframe for Samsung/carrier/Android standards, given that in the US the phones run on a Snapdragon instead of an Exynos chipset, too.

As you can see from the screenshot below that a user sent us, the size weighs in at 1.5 GB, or about as much as the software that is being pushed to the international versions, so it will take some serious updating to get the new minimalistic Samsung UX, the split-screen multitasking, and the app shortcut features that come with Nougat on the S7 and S7 edge. Anyone else got it already?

Thanks for the tip, Mitchell!
