It doesn’t come as a surprise that not all Samsung Galaxy S7 and S7 Edge users have yet to receive the latest Android 7.0 Nougat update on their handsets.
The OS started rolling out in mid-January, but only those with the unlocked models in the U.S. were able to access and actually download the new OS. Since then, the Nougat love has been spreading gradually across the globe, with markets in Europe and Asia receiving the OS each and every day.
After Taiwan and the Philippines, the latest to join the party are the Baltic States in Europe. These include Lithuania, Latvia, and Estonia and if you live in any of these three countries, you can now download and install Android 7.0 Nougat on your Galaxy S7 or S7 Edge phone right away. As you can expect from a major software upgrade, the latest version is quite heavy, weighing in at about 1.3GB.
In addition to coming in with the latest Android 7.0 Nougat, Samsung Galaxy S7 and S7 Edge users in the Baltic States will also see a bump in the Android security patch level to the latest version from the month of February. It gets even better as Sammy has also included the new Secure Folder app that was recently rolled out to Galaxy S7 and S7 Edge users who are already on the Nougat platform.
So far, Samsung has not made this official, but there’s someone who has already received the update and shared the details with Android Soul. In case the OTA notification hasn’t arrived on your Galaxy S7 or S7 Edge just yet, patience is recommended and sooner than later it will be there. If patience is not part and parcel of your philosophy, there’s an option to run a manual check of the update’s availability via Settings>About device>System updates.
Do make sure that you have at least 50% of the battery and that your phone is connected to the internet via a Wi-Fi hotspot, otherwise, you’ll end up using cellular data, which could be way expensive, especially if there’s no unlimited plan.
