Samsung begins seeding Nougat to a small batch of Galaxy S7 units

Kaloyan, 04 January 2017

Good news for the Galaxy S7 and S7 edge owners. Today Samsung began the soak test of Android 7 Nougat update and a small number of phones are getting it right now.

In December Samsung concluded a limited beta run of the Nougat update on the Galaxy S7 and it began prepping for the full-blown release. Now that the soak test is happening, if everything goes smoothly, the update should begin rolling out worldwide in a matter of days.

The Nougat update sent to the lucky users contains Google's January security patches and has a build number of G935FXXU1DPLR.

The official Android Nougat update for the Galaxy S7 series seems to be just around the corner, so stay tuned and free some space if you are in the low gigabyte digits.
