Samsung Galaxy S7 Active with Android 7.0 Nougat hits GFXBench

Samsung Galaxy S7 Active Android smartphone to get Nougat update soon

The Samsung Galaxy S7 Active has just been spotted on the GFXBench online database running Nougat, so it looks like the update will arrive later this month, as previously announced.

Samsung Galaxy S7 Active has been around for a while, arriving exclusively on AT&T back in June. At launch, this handset had Android 6.0 Marshmallow on board, but now the time has finally arrived for it to get the Nougat treatment. However, it seems that those interested should wait for a few more days until the new firmware finally arrives.

Back in late 2016, Samsung announced that the Galaxy S7 lineup is scheduled to receive the Android Nougat firmware in January 2017. Now, although there is no official announcement yet, the Galaxy S7 Active has been spotted on GFXBench, loaded with Android 7.0 Nougat. Unfortunately, the version that surfaced on the online benchmark database had Android 7.0 on board, while Samsung has recently promised to deliver Android 7.1.1 to the Galaxy S7 family.

Since nothing is official yet, we should wait for a few more days until the new firmware finally becomes available. After all, the Galaxy S7 and Galaxy S7 Edge are expected to get Android 7.1.1 in the coming weeks as well, so it is only a matter of timing. We will get back to this topic as soon as we find out anything new, 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.
