Forward ever i believe backward never so is the saying with Samsung. Finally Samsung has yet to release Android 7.0 Nougat update for any of its smartphones. However, the South Korean company is expected to make the highly-anticipated update available to some of its flagship smartphones later this year.
A Galaxy Beta Program application is available for download in the Galaxy Apps store, so those who want to take beta versions for Android up for a spin must download this application and hope they'll be chosen by Samsung.
The good news is Samsung is already working on the first Android 7.0 Nougat beta build for those who own the Galaxy S7 edge. The regular version of Galaxy S7 might be eligible for the update as well, but we've only had it confirmed for its edge counterpart for the moment.
According to new reports, Samsung UK has just kicked off the Android 7.0 Nougat beta program, and assuming that you already have the Galaxy Beta Program app installed on the Galaxy S7 edge, you will be able to download and install this beta version of Nougat.
Keep in mind, though, that having enrolled for the Android 7.0 Nougat beta does not guarantee that you'll be getting this build in the UK.
This beta build could be rolled out in the coming days
As Samsung points out, the beta build released in the coming days is not the official version, so Galaxy S7 edge owners should expect it to be affected by some issues and errors. Moreover, this particular build might not contain all the features that the final version might bring.
Obviously, those who do receive the Android 7.0 Nougat beta update on their Galaxy S7 edge should definitely try and offer their feedback whenever they find issues within the build.
In other news, with the Galaxy Note 7 discontinuation, Samsung fans won't be getting another flagship smartphone for the second half of the year.
The South Korean company has decided to ramp up production of the Galaxy S7/S7 edge, so these models could go against the latest flagships released, including the iPhone 7, Google Pixel, LG V20 and Huawei Mate 9.
