Android 7.0 Nougat Update Brings Major Visual Tweaks, New Power Saving Mode to Samsung Galaxy S7, S7 Edge

Samsung Galaxy S7 and S7 Edge

Samsung Galaxy S7 and Galaxy S7 Edge users are now free to join the Galaxy Beta Program that gives them access to the latest Android 7.0 Nougat beta.

As you all know, beta versions are not stable as they are essentially a work in progress. However, geeky users and early adopters of the new Android 7.0 Nougat on Samsung Galaxy S7 and S7 Edge are already enjoying the new OS on their devices.

Samsung will be adding a number of Galaxy Note 7 visual features to the new OS alongside other tweaks. However, this current version is far from the final version, which should be coming out in the near future.

Samsung Galaxy S7 and S7 Edge come with a display feature known as Always On. Just recently, the company had added a bunch of new features to the Always On Display, but it seems all of them, including clock faces, will be found in the Nougat update. The new update also brings transparent backgrounds for folders while the incoming caller background has also received a small tweak. These interface changes are among the many things Samsung Galaxy users have always asked for as far as the TouchWiz UI is concerned.

The dead Galaxy Note 7 had a number of amazing power saving modes, among them the ability to shift the resolution of the phone from QHD to Full HD or even HD. Samsung Galaxy S7 users can be happy as this feature will be coming over via the new Android Nougat update. The camera app has also been updated to add support for swiping gestures along with a complete redesign.

You should also be ready for the new-look notification shade alongside a new settings panel. The update is also expected to improve the performance of the phone through software optimizations as well as the addition of more features.

When exactly Samsung Galaxy S7 and Galaxy S7 Edge will be receiving the full version of Android Nougat is still unknown. However, it shouldn’t be long before it happens, probably this coming month of December.
