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.

Although I have been writing about new software and hardware for almost a decade, I consider myself to be old school. I always enjoy listening to music on CD or tape instead of digital files and I will not even get into the touchscreen vs physical keys debate. However, I also enjoy new technology, as I now have the chance to take a look at the future every day. I joined the Notebookcheck crew back in 2013 and I have no plans to leave the ship anytime soon.
