As part of the beta program by Samsung, a few Galaxy S7 users already received the Nougat update as they try out the latest version of Android and provide feedback for improvements. However, Samsung finished the said beta program last month and would release the official update in January, according to a report by mobipicker.

A selected number of Galaxy S7 users will receive the Nougat update as Samsung is conducting a soak test for the planned roll-out of the official update. This could be the final build as the company has no more plans of releasing any more beta builds. Including in this update is a January security patch that addressed 67 common vulnerabilities and exposures, and also security fixes for Exynos 8895 and Snapdragon 835.

According to a report by neurogadget, The Nougat update for the Galaxy S7 and S7 Edge will be straight to Android 7.1.1, as announced by Samsung in response to a beta program member that suggests updating to the latest software.

Here are a few expected features for the Nougat update:

  •  New TouchWiz UI; The new user interface will be a mix of white and blue which was inspired by the Material Design of Stock Android.
  •  New Camera App; The new camera app is more polished and will be easy to use.
  •  New Lockscreen; The new lock screen is imported from the Note 7 and will now let users access apps without accessing the main menu.
  •  Blue Light Filter; This is based on the Google Pixel that limits the eye strain by limiting the amount of blue light from the display.
  •  Expanded Multi Window; Instead of selective apps on the current version, this will be extended for multiple apps.
  •  New Battery Modes; The new battery modes are Normal, Entertainment, Game and High Performance modes.
