Samsung has reportedly released Android 7.0 Nougat beta to its Galaxy S7 and Galaxy S7 edge devices in its home country South Korea. It came a few days after the OS beta version was rolled out in the UK before the servers stopped working.
Android 7.0 Nougat beta is now available for the Galaxy S7 and Galaxy S7 edge devices in South Korea. Consumers interested in taking part in the OS beta test need to download the "Galaxy Beta Programme" application from Galaxy Apps and submit the application form through "Registration" menu on the top of the app.
Samsung has earlier said that Android 7.0 Nougat beta would be made available for the Galaxy S7 and Galaxy S7 edge (unlocked version) devices starting November 9 and conclude the test in mid December.
It is still not known when the South Korean technology giant will release the firmware to its flagships but it won't come as a surprise if it happens by the end of this year or early next year. The company is expected to release the firmware to the Galaxy S7 and Galaxy S7 before expanding to other devices.
Android 7.0 Nougat update is expected to come to handsets like the Galaxy S7, Galaxy S7 edge, Galaxy S7 Active, Galaxy S7 Batman edition, Galaxy S7 Olympic edition, Galaxy Note 5, Galaxy S6, Galaxy S6 Edge, Galaxy S6 edge+, Galaxy S6 Active, Galaxy S6 Ironman edition, and Galaxy S6 Active.
Google's new firmware will bring features like Grace UX, multi-window, direct reply notifications, Extra power efficiency, Google Assistant, VR interface, Seamless updates, Data saver, Improved file browser, Instant Apps, bundled notifications, and improved Java 8 language support.
