Even though Samsung Galaxy S7 and S7 Edge started receiving Android 7.0 Nougat updates in 2016, only unlocked variants were included in the update.
Just yesterday, T-Mobile started rolling out Android 7.0 Nougat to the two Samsung phones and today, AT&T has also begun pushing the same update to the Galaxy S7 and S7 Edge phones. This is good news for American carriers given that the unlocked models only started receiving the OS a month ago.
Like other users, AT&T is also pushing Android 7.0 Nougat to both Samsung Galaxy S7 and S7 Edge, but it is possible Samsung may skip v7.1.1 and release the latest version 7.1.2 at a later time. Nonetheless, those using these two phones on AT&T can now download and install the original version, which also comes with the latest monthly Android security patch for this month. The update carries build number G930AUCU48QA6 for the S7 and G935AUCU48QA6 for the S7 Edge.
Since it is a major update from Android Marshmallow to Android 7.0 Nougat, it weighs a massive 1.6GB, which means you need a pretty good amount of free space on your phone. As for downloading the OTA, make sure you are connected to a Wi-Fi hotspot before proceeding with the process.
As expected, Samsung Galaxy S7 and S7 Edge users who update to the new Android 7.0 Nougat will start enjoying new features such as multi-window operations, changed UI elements, new quick settings and so on. As usual, the new software should also come in with more improvements to the phone’s performance, stability, and others elements.
Meanwhile, AT&T’s Android 7.0 Nougat update for Samsung Galaxy Note 5 has also been confirmed by the Wi-Fi Alliance. With this in mind, users of this Note phablet can expect to receive this OS in the next few weeks, probably together or after the same update rolls out to Samsung Galaxy S6, S6 Edge and S6 Edge+.
