Samsung Galaxy S7, S7 Edge Android 7.0 Or 7.1.1 Nougat Update Releases For S6 Variants; Samsung Galaxy Note 5 Next [Video]
The tech giant Samsung will be releasing the different versions of Android 7.0 Nougat update to different models of its Galaxy S7 Edge and Galaxy S7 in different regions of the world. However, few users of the smartphones will receive the latest version of the update i.e. Android 7.1.1 Nougat, while some users will get the older version i.e. 7.0 Nougat.
According to Android Central, this is also good news for owners of Samsung's former flagships like the Galaxy Note 5, Galaxy S6, Galaxy S6 edge, and Galaxy S6 edge Plus, which should be next in the line to receive the Android Nougat update.
A representative for Vodafone in Australia has confirmed this news. Australia is one of the regions that will receive the Android 7.0 Nougat update on the Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge as well as Samsung Galaxy S7.
In a response to a consumer inquiry, on whether customers will be upgraded directly to the latest version of the Android 7.1.1 Nougat update, the representative stated that they have checked-in with the right individuals for them @shauno100 and @chri5tin3 and they have confirmed the references to the company skipping Android 7.0 Nougat in the reference to other markets and not to Australia. They are surely testing Android 7.0 Nougat for both gadgets.
According to the several reports, based on the earlier guidance from the electronics company, the released version will be Android 7.1.1 Nougat. However, this appears not to be the case at least in Australia. However, it is still unknown as to which models in which other regions of the world will get which build, either 7.1.1 Nougat or 7.0 Nougat.
Samsung is said to be following the standard protocol by planning the release of Android Nougat to users of its current flagship smartphones first, but with that release now around the corner, the company is said now to focusing on its former flagships, namely the Galaxy S6, Galaxy S6 edge, Galaxy S6 edge Plus and Galaxy Note 5.
At present, there is no official word on a timeline for those releases, but the sooner the Galaxy S7 and S7 edge Android Nougat updates make their way to users, the sooner owners of the former flagships can also expect to receive the Android Nougat updates.
