Samsung and T-Mobile have completed the Android 7.0 Nougat update for T-Mo’s Galaxy S7 and S7 edge. Several T-Mobile customers started receiving the Nougat update on their phones this evening, complete with the February 1, 2017 security patches.
It appears as though the update is only hitting Samsung beta testers at first. The TmoNews readers who pinged me about the update were in the beta program, as were users on Reddit and xda-developers. Additionally, one Reddit user received the following message from Samsung’s Galaxy Beta Program Team with the update:
So while this does sound like this is the full, final release of Android 7.0 for T-Mobile’s Galaxy S7 and S7 edge, it seems that beta testers are getting it first as a way of Samsung to say “Thanks” for participating in the beta program.
There’s no word yet on when this Android 7.0 update will hit all T-Mobile Galaxy S7 and S7 edge owners. Now that the official release is making its way to beta testers, though, hopefully it won’t be long before everyone can taste the Nougat-y goodness.
Thanks, Luis, Doug, and Alex!
