Samsung has officially confirmed through its recently concluded Galaxy Beta Program for the Galaxy S7 and Galaxy S7 edge that it plans on rolling out the official Nougat update for the handsets in January. Samsung gave Galaxy S7 and S7 edge owners from across the world a chance to test Nougat on their handset before its official release and submit bug reports to them.

The company rolled out five updates to members of its Galaxy Beta Program fixing bugs and adding new features on the way since it initially started with the beta program in November. Considering that the beta program has now come to an end, a January release for the Nougat update for the Galaxy S7 and S7 edge definitely seems possible until and unless Samsung comes across some major bugs.

The Nougat update for the Galaxy S7 and S7 edge will bring with it a refreshed UI that Samsung first debuted with the Galaxy Note 7 earlier in the year. The update will also add new features like a Blue light filter and an enhanced multitasking experience. While the Nougat beta program for the Galaxy S7 was based on Android 7.0, the final release from Samsung will be based on Android 7.1.1 Nougat.

Are you looking forward to the Nougat update for the Galaxy S7?
