Although, it’s been a month that Android Nougat is out, it is still not obvious which devices will receive it. If you have an older Samsung device, for instance, you would still have to hang around and wait if it would be added in the list of those that would get the Nougat update.
What’s apparent now, however, is that the Samsung Galaxy S7 and S7 Edge will receive Android Nougat. GSM Arena has noticed these two flagship phones on Geekbench, and the listings reveal that the two models have been checked while running on Android 7.0. The results don’t demonstrate how the latest firmware update will enhance the S7 and S7 Edge, but it’s in any case a signal that they’re being vigorously checked by Samsung.
As per reports, Android Nougat now provides better and smoother performance in S7 and S7 Edge, as compared to Marshmallow. Together with the Nougat update, Samsung will apply the Grace UX in the S7 and S7 Edge.
Talking about the Note 7, Samsung has long-established that it will also get the Android Nougat update. However, it will take the company almost three months to adjust Nougat and guarantee its custom features will do well in the Note 7 build. Of course, keep in mind that this model has endured a tough time PR-wise because of arbitrarily combusting handsets, which might have added to the stoppage of the Nougat advancement for the Note 7.
Apart from the Note 7, S7 and S7 Edge, it’s very much possible that the Galaxy S6 family will get Android Nougat, bearing in mind that Android firmware updates typically cover two-year-old phones such as the S6. Mid-range and older models will still have to wait and see if they are entitled to receive Nougat.
