These two Canadian carriers have finally begun to roll out the new firmware to the Galaxy S7 family, thus joining Bell, Virgin Mobile, EastLink, SaskTel, Wind Mobile, and Freedom Mobile.

Samsung's last year Galaxy S7 lineup in Canada now have the long-awaited Android Nougat update available on most local carriers, since Rogers and Telus have finally joined the others. Smaller brands like EastLink or SaskTel took this step already, so it is good to see that the heavies are finally moving as well.

The Samsung Galaxy S7 and the Galaxy S7 Edge on Rogers and Telus now get the firmware version G930W8VLU2BQB6 and G935W8VLU2BQB6, an update that finally leaves Android Marshmallow behind. The usual Nougat goodies should all be here, including the improved Doze mode, enhanced multi-window support, quick settings, new emojis, as well as the usual security patches and various optimizations.

Rogers and Telus join the following networks who already launched the Nougat firmware for the Galaxy S7 handsets in Canada: Freedom Mobile, SaskTel, Bell, Virgin Mobile, EastLink, and Wind Mobile. The update comes via OTA and should reach Galaxy S7/S7 Edge users on Telus and Rogers in a few days.

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.
