At least for European users, the Galaxy S7 Edge should be getting its official Android Nougat update within the next few days.

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.

After graduating with a B.S. in environmental hydrodynamics from the University of California, I studied reactor physics to become licensed by the U.S. NRC to operate nuclear reactors. There's a striking level of appreciation you gain for everyday consumer electronics after working with modern nuclear reactivity systems astonishingly powered by computers from the 80s. When I'm not managing day-to-day activities and US review articles on Notebookcheck, you can catch me following the eSports scene and the latest gaming news.
