Android 7.0 Nougat rolling out for Samsung S7/S7 Edge in India


Hello beautiful people,

Samsung had said they would improve their software update schedule and would ensure to provide quick Android updates for flagship phone users. They had one of the most pathetic software update schedule earlier. But now that’s not the case.

Samsung has started rolling out Android 7.0 Nougat for Samsung S7/S7 Edge in India,Russia and Vodafone subscribers in Germany. Samsung had launched beta testing in United States,United Kingdom, South Korea and China for the Android 7.0 to a limited number of users. After the beta testing ended, Samsung had rolled out stable versions of the Nougat to the former beta users.

Samsung then was quick to release updates to the stable devices from January 17 onward starting with China and UK. This update was for all users instead of only those who signed up for beta.

In India, the Galaxy S7 Nougat update is code-numbered G930FXXU1DQAZ and weighs in at around 1285MB. Meanwhile, the S7 Edge Nougat (G935FXXU1DQAZ) is slightly larger, at 1290MB. Not all users may get update soon as there may be server problem or if it is being rolled out in stages. So do wait for the update to arrive to your phone. Meanwhile you can also go to “About Phone” section in the phone settings and check for updates if you want to speed up the process. 


Samsung bundled quite a few changes with the Nougat update for the Galaxy S7/Edge, with highlights including multiple changes to the UI (new font, new animations), a revamped settings menu, a revamped notification drop-down, blue light filter, new Device Maintenance tool, Performance mode, the ability to scale down display resolution, and improvements to the Always On Display.

India, Russia and Germany are joining China,France,UK and other large markets where the Nougat is readily available for S7/S7 Edge owners. More regions should follow soon.
