Samsung To Release Nougat 7.0 Update For S7 And Note 5
Google recently released the Android Nougat 7.0 for smartphones worldwide, and a lot of companies already have provided the software for download. The Nexus devices also have got the notification to download and update the software.
Samsung is infamous for releasing updates rather late for its flagships. This stems from the fact that Samsung likes to optimize the update for its TouchWiz, which apparently delays the update. It is still unknown when the 2016's flagship the S7 and the 2015's Note flagship, the Note 5 would receive the update.
The new update from Google adds new multitasking features like multi screen support and the ability to switch between apps by double tapping the recent apps button. Google also adds Google Assitant, which is far more interactive and fun to use than Google Now. Although the newest updates aren't new for Samsung flagship users, as they have been having the multi window support since the 2014's flagship the Galaxy S5.
The positive news is that this time around, Samsung would be pushing the update fairly quickly onto the devices and the update would be released sooner than people think. According to iTech, Samsung's Nougat update phones are the Galaxy S7, S7 Edge, Note 5, S6, S6 Edge and S6 Edge Plus.
Samsung will be releasing the update for the S7, S7 Edge and the Note 5 first, as they are the newest by launch, and will have easier firmware upgrades possible than older models. The Nougat update is likely to hit these phones before Q4 in 2016.
The Android Nougat 7.0 update has been confirmed by T-Mobile for Samsung. Samsung has released a statement which lets people know that its developers are working hard to pass onto the update for its flagship phones.
The update would bring a lot of flexibility to the flagship powerhouses. Stay tuned to know more Samsung and the Android Nougat updates.
