Samsung launches beta testing Android 7.0 Nougat for the flagship Galaxy S7 edge 3 months after the release of OS
Samsung has announced the testing of the new Android operating system 7.0 Nougat in the UK. It is noteworthy that the company is launching the program, almost three months after the release of the OS.
To install the beta version of the new OS, owners of smartphones Galaxy S7 edge, you must first download the app Galaxy Beta Program from the app store Galaxy Apps. Join in the beta testing program will be necessary while the company has not officially announced the update. It is expected that the Samsung Galaxy S7 will also receive the update operating system.
In August of this year Android 7.0 Nougat came out to 5X Nexus smartphones, Nexus 6, Nexus 6P, Nexus 9, Nexus Player and Pixel C, all the rest have to rely on happy accident and the quickness of Google’s partners. The sources SamMobile indicates that Samsung will start sending out the final version of the relevant updates only at the end of the year.
Insiders note that the first Android N will go to the flagship Galaxy S7 edge, Galaxy S7, Galaxy S6, Galaxy S6 edge, Galaxy S6 edge and Galaxy Note 5. Of tablets first update will Galaxy Tab S2, but it will happen in 2017.
Given that Samsung have traditionally not too much of a hurry in this question, the actual fourth quarter may be only for the domestic market. The same Galaxy S6, for example, in South Korea received Android 6.0 in January, and some other countries of the world newsletter started even later. Therefore, in another scenario, believe with great difficulty.
Note that the main innovation of Android 7.0 Nougat is, of course, multitasking split screen. Smartphones and tablets will be able to display two applications on the screen simultaneously, and the programs for video playback will support mode “picture in picture”.
This year the release of the new version of Android took place before the debut of the new iOS release. Android now supports 400 original equipment manufacturers, 500 mobile operators and millions of developers. Despite this, in terms of release date updates for end-users Android is still far behind iOS. That is why, observers believe, this move of Google is entirely justified.
