What was initially reported as a rumor is now looking more likely to happen. According to the screenshot below, The Galaxy S7 Edge should begin receiving OTA updates for Android Nougat starting January 17. The smartphone model in question is the Samsung G935F, otherwise known as the European Galaxy S7 Edge. The standard Galaxy S7 should also be receiving a similar update later this month according to previous reports.
The South Korean manufacturer has been beta testing Android Nougat for its latest Galaxy smartphones for months. Now that the Galaxy Note 7 is no longer in the limelight, Samsung has been focusing more on the rest of its lineup and even launched the Galaxy S7 in new colors during the Holiday season.
The next Galaxy S model could be announced as soon as next month at Mobile World Congress 2017 in Barcelona. If rumors prove to be true, then we can expect the Galaxy S8 to have no 3.5 mm audio jack, carry up to 6 or 8 GB of RAM, a 5.5-inch AMOLED UHD display, 256 GB of internal storage space, and be the first smartphone with integrated Bluetooth 5.
