Nougat Roundup: Unlocked Galaxy S7 Gets OTA Update in US, Nokia 6 Receives Wider Android 7.1.1 rollout
Samsung recently rolled out Nougat update for the unlocked Galaxy S7 edge units in the US via SmartSwitch. Now, the company has extended the privilege to unlocked Galaxy S7 smartphone. For the unlocked Galaxy S7 (model number SM-G930U), Samsung has pushed an OTA update that finally brings Nougat on the device.
It goes without saying that a flagship like Galaxy S7 should have received this update way earlier. What's more surprising is that this time around US-bound carriers like T-Mobile, Verizon, and others have beaten Samsung in the update game. The carrier-bound units of the Galaxy S7 and Galaxy S7 edge got the Nougat update a month earlier. As the phrase goes, better late than never, Samsung has finally pushed the Nougat OTA update for the unlocked Galaxy S7 handsets.
The update package for the Galaxy S7 is 1.2GB in size, which means that you must check if your device has enough storage space to accommodate this update. Also, being an OTA update, we would like to suggest the unlocked S7 users make sure that they are on a stable internet connection to download the update. In another news, Galaxy S7 edge users in the UK are also getting the Nougat update.
