Samsung has finally officially confirmed what we have known all along: that it has began seeding the Android 7.0 Nougat update to users of its flagship smartphones from last year, the Galaxy S7 and Galaxy S7 Edge.
Some of the features that users of the two devices are getting alongside the new features that came to Android with Nougat, some like Multi-window that are not new to Samsung’s Galaxy devices, is Samsung Pass. Samsung Pass is a master key of sorts that takes advantage of the fingerprint sensor embedded in the physical home buttons of the Galaxy S7 and S7 Edge to make it easy for users to log in to websites when using Samsung’s mobile web browser, Samsung Internet.
While making that announcement, Samsung has also made it known the other devices that are in line for an upgrade to Android 7 once it is done with the Galaxy S7.
Owners of the Galaxy S6, Galaxy S6 Edge, Galaxy S6 Edge Plus and Galaxy Note 5, premium smartphones from nearly two years ago can expect to get the update soon. As are those who use the Galaxy Tab A “with S Pen”, Galaxy Tab S2 (LTE unlock), Galaxy A3, and Galaxy A8.
Even though the company shies away from giving us specific dates, it does state that all the devices earmarked for a Nougat update will be getting it before the first quarter of the year elapses.
That under 1% will fall. Soon!
