Samsung has released Android 7.0 Nougat beta build to the Galaxy S7 and Galaxy S7 edge devices in select countries. The company has also rolled out second beta build of the firmware to the devices in Europe. Now, the programme is expected to be expanded to more countries, including Philippines. But the big question is whether it will come to India.
Smartphone manufacturers roll out beta build of firmware to devices before it is released to the public to ensure that all bugs are fixed and issues solved.
When asked about the possibility of Android 7.0 Nougat beta programme launch in the Philippines by a SamMobile reader, Samsung support representative responded that it could happen next week. The source also shared a screenshot of the conversation with Samsung Philippines support.
It is still not confirmed if Android 7.0 Nougat beta programme will really come to the Philippines but it still has incited curiosity among the people whether the beta version will be released in other countries, including India. Samsung had earlier said that its beta test would come to an end by mid December, so it appears like it will not expand the beta programme to many countries.
Android 7.0 Nougat beta build comes with some features in Grace UX that was seen in the now discontinued Galaxy Note 7. Features like always-on display, more vibrant background, transparent folders, new settings and new notification bar.
