Samsung's Galaxy Note 7 might have fallen victim to an internal issue that caused the smartphone to go up in flames randomly in various parts of the world, but the Secure Folder functionality offered by Samsung within the smartphone was undoubtedly eye-catching. Now, this feature is reportedly set to be seeded to Galaxy S7 users via a new update.
As per new reports, Samsung Galaxy S7 users can expect a new update in the near future. This is said to introduce Secure Folder functionality. Even owners of the slightly higher-end Galaxy S7 Edge would be seeded the feature.
However, the actual Secure Folder functionality would require manual downloading form the Galaxy Apps repository; as the speculated update would only make Galaxy S7 and Galaxy S7 Edge smartphones eligible for receiving the feature along with unlocking internal capabilities. Therefore, Galaxy S7 and Galaxy S7 Edge owners are advised to manually check out new updates for their devices.
In related Samsung news, the next-gen Galaxy S variant is rumoured to be Galaxy S8 that is reportedly slated for release in 2017. Features of this smartphone are rumoured to include a 5.7-inch screen, a custom Artificial Intelligence (AI) offering, a 12MP S5K2L2 snapper, 6GB RAM, 256 GB internal storage and Harman speakers on the front side.
