Recently, the unlocked version of the Galaxy S7 Edge has received the Nougat update in the US. Naturally, people started wondering what will happen to the same update, but for the Galaxy S7. And now, there are some reports showing that the unlocked version of the S7 is finally ready to receive it.
Many Galaxy S7 owners confirmed on Reddit that the rollout for the S7 model SM-G930U, which is the US unlocked one, is now available. Another Reddit thread has also suggested that the UK unlocked S7 Edge devices might be getting the update too. However, it’s not the same thing as the S7 Edge update released last week, since the users have to install the update with the help of a Samsung Smart Switch PC interface.
Instead of this, the current update seems to be an OTA one. A screenshot that was uploaded by one of the users shows that the file weighs in at around 1.2 GB. However, the entire thing with the S7 devices seems kind of odd, since they were released after the carrier updates. Normally, the unlocked devices receive the updates first, because carriers take some time until they approve them. But in this particular case, the last of the US carriers rolled out the update in the beginning of March.
Even though we know this from Reddit, everybody is expecting an official confirmation of the update to the S7. If you want to check if your device is ready for the update, go to the software update page found in the settings menu. Up until now, people who managed to install the upgrade to Android Nougat declared themselves happy with the features they received. There might still be a bug here or there, but all in all Google did a great job here.
