Samsung Galaxy S7, S7 Edge Android Nougat Update Rolling out for T-Mobile Users – and Taiwan
Samsung Galaxy S7 and S7 Edge Nougat update started rolling out in mid-January, but up until now, some regions have not yet received the OS.
The unlocked variants of the Galaxy S7 and S7 Edge were the first to receive the update, but this happened in the U.S. The rollout has on since then, with quite a number of regions including Europe and Asia already receiving the OS. As usual, carrier-branded variants lag behind when it comes to software updates and as a result, it is only now that T-Mobile is rolling out the new Android 7.0 Nougat update, but this is happening for those who were part of the Galaxy Beta program.
The update is coming over the air and as such, not all users of Samsung Galaxy S7 and S7 Edge on T-Mobile will download it at once, but it won’t be long before you are notified. Other than the new Android 7.0 Nougat, Galaxy S7 and S7 Edge users will also receive this month’s Android security patch. The OTA reportedly weighs about 115MB for both handsets thanks to the fact that the beta users already have an unstable Nougat on their devices. This new OTA brings the stable Android 7.0 Nougat. If all goes well, the stable rollout for other users should happen as from February 24.
Samsung is not just taking care of U.S. users of Galaxy S7 and S7 Edge, but it also has those in Taiwan at heart. Apparently, Android 7.0 Nougat is also rolling out in this market. The former is receiving software build number G930FXXU1DQBI while the latter has been updated to G935FXXU1DQBI. This update should also come with the latest Android security patch for both devices.
As always, you can check for the update manually by going to Settings>About phone>System updates.
