Android Nougat might still struggle around the 1 percent market share barrier, but this situation is expected to face a few major changes in the coming months. Thanks to the new flagships to launch with Nougat on board soon, next to the updated ones that have been around still running Marshmallow, Android 7.0 and Android 7.1.x should finally break the 10 percent barrier in a few months.

Now, it looks like the time has come for the Samsung Galaxy S7 and S7 Edge to finally receive Android 7.0 Nougat. According to XDA Developers, "the Nougat update is now rolling out to the T-Mobile Galaxy S7 and Galaxy S7 Edge," also coming with the February security patches including.

For those who were not beta testers, the new firmware has around 1.5 GB in size. Beta testers, on the other hand, should have a much smaller update file - around 120 MB. The new firmware comes with Android 7.0 Nougat, also adding Samsung Pass, "new UX and various performance modes," and more. The official change log is not available yet but should hit the web shortly.

In my early school days, I hated writing and having to make up stories. A decade later, I started to enjoy it. Since then, I published a few offline articles and then I moved to the online space, where I contributed to major websites that are still present online as of 2021 such as Softpedia, Brothersoft, Download3000, but I also wrote for multiple blogs that have disappeared over the years. I've been riding with the Notebookcheck crew since 2013 and I am not planning to leave it anytime soon. In love with good mechanical keyboards, vinyl and tape sound, but also smartphones, streaming services, and digital art.
