The development team has rolled out a new Android Nougat beta update for Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge and it is expected to bring a couple of minor improvements to the phone’s operating system.
With the launch of the new Android 7.0 Nougat, a lot of smartphones especially the flagship ones are facing some issues. Earlier, Google’s very own Pixel phones got caught in the bootloop issue. Users reported that they were stuck in a constant loop cycle and couldn’t get into their phones. The company has promised an update to make sure the OS works as intended.
In similar style, Samsung launched another update for Galaxy S7 Edge within days to ensure their hardware doesn’t face any problems. The company didn’t release any patch notes making it extremely difficult for us to know what’s in the update. However, it is clear that they are not going to make any changes to the user interface or the Nougat operating system. Any update without a change log confirms that they are bundled with many backend improvements and revealing them to users doesn’t make any sense. Besides such security and backend processes cannot be detailed as they lead to hacking issues.
As reported by Sammobile, the Android Nougat update has been rolled out only to users who own a Samsung Galaxy phone signed up with the Galaxy beta program. The program is a closed testing zone where new updates will be tested for perfection, their functionality and any possible security issues before releasing it to millions of users. It is also confirmed in the screenshot that the second beta update should fix bootloop issues associated with the Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge.
If Google’s pixel phones face this problem, chances are high that they could affect any device and could make them unusable for days. It is assuring to see that Samsung took necessary steps to ensure they are delivering quality software to their customers as promised. When the Nougat 7.0 update is rolled out for the phone, you should be able to download and use it without any issues.
While Google has promised to look into the problem to fix Nougat issues on their Pixel phone, there is still no confirmed date for the same. Samsung didn’t confirm it in their release notes. If users confirm that it does solve bootloop issue on launch, we can confirm that they updated it earlier than the original developers, which is a plausible move from a buyer perspective.
