At long last, Samsung has released the much-anticipated Nougat update for the factory unlocked variant (SM-G930U) of the Galaxy S7 in the United States. Just like the release that started making its way to the Galaxy S7 edge last week, this upgrade transports all of the features baked into Android 7.0, in addition to a slew of bug fixes and stability improvements.
What’s a little strange is that Nougat made its way to the Galaxy S6 and Galaxy S6 edge in the region a little over a month ago, and we can’t fathom why the firm’s flagships of 2015 received the firmware before last year’s flagships, the Galaxy S7 and Galaxy S7 edge. Something’s not quite right there.
How do I download the update?
If you own a Galaxy S7 and would like to see if the update is ready for your handset, open up Settings, tap About Device, then hit the button entitled Download Updates Manually. That’s all there is to it. Alternatively, you can always wait until you receive a push notification prompting you to download and install the OTA.
