It seems like smartphone manufacturers are finally waking up to the fact that most smartphones are yet to receive the latest version of Google’s mobile platform, that is, Android 7.0 Nougat. Apart from LG, which has started rolling out Android 7.0 Nougat update on Tuesday to LG G5 users in South Korea, Samsung has seemingly rolled up its sleeves and will be providing an early taste of the Nougat update to select Galaxy S7 and S7 Edge users from Wednesday.
Samsung has announced a beta programme to allow users to check out Android 7.0 Nougat on their Galaxy S7 and S7 Edge smartphones before its official rollout. The beta program will be available for users from the US, UK, China, and South Korea from November 9.
In the US, carrier variants from Verizon, Sprint, and T-Mobile are also eligible to take part in the programme. In South Korea, the KT, SKTelecom, and LG U+ variants of the smartphones will be able to take part in it. Interestingly, the unlocked version of the smartphones in the US are not eligible to take part in the programme while the unlocked models from UK will be eligible for it.
