It's just a little more than a week since Samsung started rolling out Android 7.0 Nougat beta programme to the Galaxy S7 and Galaxy S7 edge (unlocked version) in the United States, United Kingdom and South Korea, now the same beta version has been made available in China.
In a move that can be taken as an indication of an early launch of Android 7.0 Nougat, the South Korean technology giant is rolling out the second beta build via OTA (over-the-air) for those who have enrolled in Galaxy Beta Programme in Europe. The Galaxy S7 and Galaxy S7 edge users who have installed the first beta build will automatically receive the second beta build weighing 92MB.
Samsung has said that the beta test would conclude in mid-December, which means Android 7.0 Nougat would be released to the public in the second half of December or early next year.
The South Korean electronics giant is expected to make Android 7.0 Nougat available to 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.
