Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge will not get Android 7.0 Nougat update in all markets in Q1/2017

Galaxy S7 Edge has been Samsung’s main focus following the Note 7 incident that led to a worldwide recall of the device before it was officially discontinued. Samsung previously announced that the company would release Android 7.0 Nougat for its Galaxy S7 Edge and S7 in the first quarter of 2017.

True to its words, Samsung has just released Android 7.0 Nougat update for its 2016 hit smartphones with a lot of software changes. However, it appears that the update will not be available in all markets. Previous reports said that all Galaxy S7 Edge or S7 owners would get the Android 7.0 Nougat by the end of March this year. However, chances that users in some regions will get the update many months after the initial release.


Android 7.0 Nougat update brings in significant changes to the device. Some key changes include redesigned quick toggles shade, re-organized settings menu, revamped camera icon and more. Besides, Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge also comes with some of Nougat’s native changes including interactive notifications, notification grouping and support for multi-window. However, Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge has some issues after the update. We saw a significant drop in battery life when the device is connected to a Wi-Fi network. We are expecting a more stable update from Samsung in the coming months.

For some background, Samsung Galaxy S7 and S7 Edge were introduced at 2016 Mobile World Congress. The Galaxy S7 and S7 Edge include significant changes over the Galaxy S6 and S6 Edge, with much improved camera, IP certification for water and dust resistance and expandable storage. Under the hood, the device is powered by either an octa-core Exynos 8890 or quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 820 along with 4GB of RAM. Samsung Galaxy S7 and S7 Edge sales hit 100.000 devices within two days of availability in South Korea.
