Samsung Galaxy S7 and S7 Edge Android update: latest news

 

The Samsung Galaxy S7 and S7 Edge came with Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow right out of the box, and since their release, they have received a number of updates and security patches. Finally, the update everyone has been waiting for has arrived. All major US carriers (AT&T, Verizon, Sprint, T-Mobile and even US Cellular) have rolled out the Nougat update to S7 and S7 Edge devices, and Samsung has done the same for the unlocked devices, too.

I would like to try playing games with a TV box.

Galaxy S7 Android Nougat update

After the four major US Carriers (Verizon, Sprint, T-Mobile and AT&T) rolled out the Android Nougat updates for their Galaxy S7 handsets in March 2017, US Cellular has finally caught up with the pack. 

And, last but not least, the unlocked Samsung Galaxy S7’s time has come as well. The unlocked non-Edge G930U Samsung Galaxy S7 has received Android 7.0 Nougat.

If your device hasn’t yet received the update and you’re impatient to try it out already, you can also flash your device using a custom ROM – but doing so will likely void your warranty so it’s not especially recommended, particularly as the Nougat update will certainly arrive shortly. If despite this, you still want to try it out, XDA developers forum has a custom ROM you can use.

Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge Android Nougat update

After Sprint, Verizon, T-Mobile and AT&T all rolled out their respective Android Nougat updates for the Galaxy S7, US Cellular is finally following suit, and has just started rolling out the Nougat update. The rather sizable update is exactly the same Nougat version as on the other carriers, but will be a much welcomed update nevertheless.

Owners of unlocked Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge devices in the US (G935U) were, sadly, forced to wait for Samsung to make a decision on rolling out the latest Nougat update after the major carriers all received it. Finally, it’s here now
