Galaxy S7/S7 Edge Android 7 Nougat Update?

Has anyone on ATT here in the US received the new OTA update to Nougat (Android 7) on their Galaxy S7/Edge phones yet?  Reports are out that today Samsung started rolling out the update.  If anyone from ATT sees this, can you confirm if and when the Nougat update will roll out to our phones?  Thanks!

you might want to read those stories better.  its for the 930/935F which is the euro model....  The us carriers have to certify the builds first.  I dont think we will see it till march.

 

http://www.androidcentral.com/stable-nougat-ota-now-hitting-galaxy-s7-and-s7-edge-starting-beta-user....  Notice they say when it starts rolling out to carriers around the world.

Re: Galaxy S7/S7 Edge Android 7 Nougat Update?

Look man, your Android Central article is just as vague as Android Authority and SamMobile, etc.  It says they are rolling out OTA update now, and everyone around the world will soon begin to see the updates.  Nowhere in that article does it say "only Euro" versions of the phone or when specifically the US carriers will see it.  Mine is a G935XXX, I don't know or care what versions are in what part of the world.  I was just simply asking the question here, and maybe getting the attention of an ATT moderator who could chime in if they know anything else about timing.  But I'll be sure to "read these stories better"   good grief...

My intent was not to make you mad.  it was to state you have to look at the model numbers as it shows where the update is going which does mean something.  The picture they used in that story is of a 935F you can see it in the build number.

 

As to if ATT will tell you when there releasing the update.  They dont and wont comment on it.  As cs reps dont have access to the build teams for the updates.

 

Take this with a grain of salt but ATT did not update the s6 series till May of 2016.  Then to compound the issue samsung is rolling out 7.0 not 7.1.1 which is a problem.

Re: Galaxy S7/S7 Edge Android 7 Nougat Update?

I do agree with you there, updating to 7.0 instead of 7.1.1 is just not smart.  Early reports even seemed to confirm that Samsung was going to roll out 7.1.1 as the official update because of all the stability improvements contained.  However it doesn't appear that will be the case.  Not sure why.

No way your getting Nougat.    Release dates for non carrier versions are not accurate either.

Europe gets the updates first...I've never known that not to be the case. AT&T is always slow. By the time they update the Galaxy S7s to Nougat, it'll be time for the S8s. I've gotten to the point I never pay attention to major updates, because I'm always disappointed. I'm still mad we didn't get Samsung Cloud.

Never, ever will I use private cloud services.  Not carrier, and not Samsung.  Google provides more than adequate cloud storage, sync and backup and is transferable to non Samsung devices.

They are rolling out the OTA update to nougat for S7 and S7 edge unlocked devices in the US. Devices locked to carriers like Verizon, AT&T, etc have to get approved by the carrier first.

Verizon and att have custom software from Samsung.  

Once Samsung releases Nougat for US phones (they have NOT done so) then the carrier tests it, tweeks it and sends it back to Samsung for coding. Rinse, repeat, until the software works well.  Samsung phones should not expect Nougat before the GS8 is released, but will not roll out for months, estimate late summer is pretty good.

 

Repeat....Samsung has not released a Nougat update for US phones.  The beta program proved the software was not ready.  Verizon pulled out after a couple of weeks.  

 

If you plan on holding your breath till Nougat comes out, you will not survive.  Just relax and it will come when it's ready.
