Samsung Galaxy S7 and S7 Edge owners on T-Mobile have recently begun to receive OTA notifications that the Nougat update is ready and it looks like the latest security patches have been included as well, although the new firmware is not based on Android 7.1.1.

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.

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.
