In addition to the usual new features delivered by Android Nougat, this update also removes the AT&T address book and throws new Samsung services such as Samsung Pass and Samsung Cloud into the mix.

Since Samsung Galaxy S7 owners on all major carriers finally receive Nougat these days, it is no surprise to see that the rugged handset that is part of this lineup also gets updated. The new firmware for AT&T's Galaxy S7 Active has begun its rollout earlier today and, next to the Nougat features, it also comes with some changes from AT&T and Samsung.

The support page for this update reveals a download size of 1.58 GB and the build number NRD90M.G891AUCU2BQB2. The highlights of the new firmware are the following:

  • AT&T address book removed
  • Samsung Cloud with 15 GB free cloud storage space
  • Samsung Pass support
  • Android Nougat (with the now familiar features like Doze on the Go, bundled notifications, quick app switching, split-screen mode, customizable Quick Settings, support for more languages, and more)

In addition to the above, AT&T has also added the security patches dated February 1. The update rolls out as we speak and it may take at least a few days for all compatible handsets to receive it.

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.
