Android 7.1.1 Nougat for the Samsung Galaxy S7 series coming in January
The Galaxy Beta program will shut down later today, and the official notice that delivers this information also reveals that the final Android 7.1.1 Nougat software update should arrive in January "as soon as possible."
While all the Samsung Galaxy S7 lineup devices did not get any official Nougat firmware so far, it looks like the software update is ready to arrive next month. The Galaxy Beta program has just ended, and the Beta notices that delivered this information also mention the launch date of the official firmware release.
"We will do our best to distribute the official version in January as soon as possible," says Samsung. The Galaxy Beta program still has a few hours to go, and during this period the "error report" and "suggestion" channels will continue to be monitored. Once the program shuts down, Samsung will only continue to pay attention to the "community" feed.
Android 7.1.1 Nougat packs new emojis, a brand-new camera app with white balance presets, exposure compensation, and more. The new firmware is also known to provide improved performance and various other enhancements. We will get back to the new firmware for the Samsung Galaxy S7 series once it launches, so stay tuned.

In my early school days, I hated writing and having to make up stories. A decade later, I started to enjoy it. Since then, I published a few offline articles and then I moved to the online space, where I contributed to major websites that are still present online as of 2021 such as Softpedia, Brothersoft, Download3000, but I also wrote for multiple blogs that have disappeared over the years. I've been riding with the Notebookcheck crew since 2013 and I am not planning to leave it anytime soon. In love with good mechanical keyboards, vinyl and tape sound, but also smartphones, streaming services, and digital art.
