Verizon’s Galaxy S7/S7 edge won’t be among the models to receive the update this year if Samsung plans to do that. The carrier confirmed that the Android Nougat update for these two smartphones will be launched early next year.
The reason behind Verizon’s delay is unknown, but unsurprising since according to Tech times, Samsung and Verizon haven’t exactly seen eye to eye numerous times in the past.
The Samsung Galaxy S7 and Galaxy S7 edge are supposed to be among the first Samsung smartphones to receive the Android 7.0 Nougat update, and we’re hoping that will happen by the end of the year.
The South Korean company has already kicked off the Galaxy Beta Program in the UK, U.S. and a few other countries, where select Galaxy S7/S7 edge owners get to test Android Nougat before the update goes public.
Owners of non-Verizon Samsung Galaxy S7 and S7 edge handsets however need not worry about their planned Nougat update as long as they have an active Samsung account and have the Galaxy Beta Program app installed on their phone.
