When your Samsung device will get Nougat (Android 7.0) update ?

Samsung isn’t exactly speedy when it comes to rolling out Android updates, and we sadly don’t expect that to change significantly with the Samsung Android 7.0 update. Samsung had confirmed Nougat for the Galaxy Note 7 “in 2-3 months” until the device suffered fires and was discontinued. With any luck that target will now apply to the Galaxy S7 and S7 Edge instead.

For reference, there was a five-month timeframe between the Android 6.0 launch on September 29, 2015 and the first U.S. update to Marshmallow with the Verizon Galaxy Note 5 on March 3, 2016. Using that as a benchmark, Galaxy owners could easily be waiting until the end of January or early February 2017 for the first Samsung Android 7.0 update.



With the Note 7 recall ongoing, we can’t say if Samsung might try to get Nougat out for the Galaxy S7 and S7 Edge before the end of the year with the Note 5, S6, S6 Edge and S6 Edge+ after them. With any luck, the Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8 Edge will both arrive in early 2017 running Android 7.0 or even Android 7.1 out of the box.

Best case scenario: Five months after Android 7.0 launch (January/February 2017)
