A new benchmark table shows the Samsung Galaxy S7 Active running on Android 7.0 Nougat operating system. Most phones scheduled for 2017 launch will run the latest version of the OS and but surprisingly some older ones will get the update as well.
The table appeared on GFXBench the platform where all best smartphones are put together to test their processing power and rate them based on how well they make use of the hardware resources available. Being a model designed with future proof hardware, it is to be highly powerful with the ability to run all apps, games and other content with ease. The drastic increase in processing power, especially when a flagship Qualcomm processor is used, the new Samsung Galaxy S7 Active will become much better when it receives the much needed OS update.
All Google Pixel phones are equipped with Nougat 7.0 Android platform while some select models will receive the update. Motorola G4 and G4 Plus has already received it in multiple regions. Moto Z series models are yet to receive it. Samsung always takes its own time to bring them out but they seem to be much faster now in bringing OTA updates to their top phones. The Galaxy S7 Active will receive Nougat for sure.
However, there is no information available on its launch date. Most over-the-air updates are suddenly rolled out when you least expect it. Another way is to head to the settings page on your phone to manually refresh and see if there are any available. It could be bit difficult because you will end up disappointed most of the time until the big day the launch takes place.
Another problem is that Samsung Galaxy S7 and the S7 Edge are the models that deserve the most attention from the brand. These phones are yet to receive the 7.0 Nougat update and when the flagship phones are delayed, the Active which falls in the second category will take some more time before the company decides to bring it out. However, Samsung did announce recently that they have ended the Galaxy beta program for all phones.
If you can hold on for another week or so, the manufacturer will surely come up with an official announcement. A report by SamMobile adds that Nougat is imminent update on these phones. It’s just a matter of time before you can enjoy all the benefits of the new operating system.
