Samsung Galaxy S7 and S7 Edge might be having just weeks before they get officially replaced as the latest flagship phones from the South Korean company, but this hasn’t stopped the tech giant from continuing with Android 7.0 Nougat OTA updates.
The phones first received the update to Android 7.0 Nougat in mid-January, but the process has since then spread to more Galaxy S7 and S7 Edge units across the U.S. Other regions in Europe and Asia have also received the update, but it is just now that those in the Philippines and Indonesia can speak the same language as other S7 users.
Samsun Philippines took to its official Twitter account to make this information public, confirming that the new Android 7.0 Nougat is now ready for Galaxy S7 and S7 Edge users in the country. Despite this confirmation, the tech giant did not confirm the software version that will be received in this country alongside the weight of the files.
The story is a little different when it comes to folks in Indonesia. Here, Samsung Galaxy S7 and S7 Edge users can expect an Android 7.0 Nougat OTA update that weighs about 1.3GB. The update will bump the phones’ software versions to G930FXXU1DQB7 for the S7 and G935FXXU1DQB7 for the S7 Edge and in addition to bringing Nougat, it should also bring the latest Android security patch for the month of February.
As noted at the beginning, Samsung has plans to replace the Galaxy S7 and S7 Edge in a few weeks’ time. In fact, tech giant recently teased the upcoming Galaxy S8 while unveiling the Galaxy Tab S3 at the MWC 2017 event over the weekend, all but confirming that the Unpacked event for unboxing the S8 will be held on March 29 in New York City, with the release expected to follow suit a couple or so weeks later. This phone will be powered by Android 7.0 Nougat out of the box.
