Google has already rolled out its new operating system, the Android 7.0 Nougat, to some of the Nexus devices. Although the new software is already expected to hit some of the devices from other manufacturers, tech fans are starting to wonder when the update will start. New reports have emerged suggesting that Samsung devices will soon get the update. According to reports, the highly anticipated mobile operating system is currently undergoing modifications to avoid compatibility issues.
In a report by Christian Today, there are sources saying that the first wave of updates will start in the last quarter of this year, which basically means that fans can expect the new operating system starting next month. According to the publication, Samsung devices may most likely get the Android 7.0 Nougat in early 2017.
According to a report by Android Authority, the South Korean tech giant may follow a pattern on updating software on their devices. Earlier updates happened after a five-month timeframeâ€”Android 6.0 was launch in September 2015, five months later in early March 2016, Samsung Verizon Galaxy Note 5updated to Marshmallow. If rumors prove to be true, Samsung Galaxy owners may get the Android 7.0 Nougat update between February and March 2017.
Meanwhile, it has been reported that the new Samsung Galaxy Note 7 will become the first device from the company to get the Android 7.0 Nougat update. On the other hand, the Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 is expected to get the Android N update between April and June.
Samsung devices under T-Mobile are already listed to get the Android update. These are the Galaxy Note 5, Galaxy Note 7, Galaxy S6, and Galaxy S6 Edge. The current Galaxy S7 and Galaxy S7 Edge are also included in the list.
It has also been confirmed that the new LG V20 will be the first device to be shipped with a preinstalled Android 7.0 Nougat. It is certainly interesting since new Android software normally debuts on a Google Nexus device.
