US Cellular Samsung Galaxy S7 and Galaxy S7 Edge get Android Nougat

Samsung Galaxy S7/S7 Edge flagships on US Cellular finally receive Android Nougat

Although the Galaxy S7 handsets in the US started to receive Android 7.0 Nougat more than three months ago, US Cellular was not in a hurry. The new firmware it rolls out as we speak has about 1.5 GB in size and does not hold any surprises.

Samsung Galaxy S7 and Galaxy S7 Edge might no longer be the latest flagships their maker has to offer, but they will continue to receive updates well into 2018. Sadly, the new software reaches carrier-branded units after pretty long delays, as it happens with the US Cellular Galaxy S7 and Galaxy S7 Edge.

The US Cellular variants of the two Galaxy S7 flagships are SM-G930R4 and SM-G935R4. Although it took a long time for the update to arrive (it has been available for unlocked variants and on other carriers since January), at least it comes with the latest official security patches. The update's file has 1,512.39 MB in size (when updating the S7 Edge) and comes with the new Nougat interface, improved notifications and quick settings, better power management, enhanced Always-On Display capabilities, and so on.

The update rolls out via OTA, and some users might have to wait for a while until they receive the notification. As it usually happens in such cases, those in a hurry can always update manually.
