Samsung Galaxy S7 edge owners were highly disappointed when they did not receive the Android 7.0 Nougat update on Tuesday, Jan. 17. Millions of users expected to have handsets running on the latest Google OS by now but only a few users were able to download the upgrade.
Samsung Galaxy S7 Upgrade Issues
While there were more successful upgrades now than yesterday, the staggered release frustrated many users. Based on the feedback of Samsung Galaxy S7 edge users, the first ones to receive the official upgrade were the ones who downloaded the Beta version. Given the delay in rolling out the update, some users questioned whether Samsung deliberately halted the upgrade.
There are rumors that Samsung decided to stop its campaign for the Android 7.0 Nougat upgrade because they saw some software issues in handsets in China. The said report indicated that Samsung had to look into this bug first before they can roll out the update. It is still unclear whether the issue that affected Chinese handsets could also affect devices in other countries.
Android 7.0 Nougat
As the latest OS for Android phones from Google, many users are excited to see the changes brought about by the latest upgrade. Based on reports, the Android 7.0 Nougat update for the Samsung Galaxy S7 edge has been halted temporarily in China. However, it is not clear if this is the reason for the delayed availability of the upgrade.
In fact, the South Korean tech giant was said to have released another beta update for the handset in China despite the fact that the beta program for Android 7.0 Nougat ended a month ago. The latest beta update will bring about performance improvements and introduce a new power saving mode.
It should be also noted that Samsung is not the only company that halted the upgrade. Due to bug issues, HTC 10 also stopped its upgrades. Users who cannot see the upgrade yet should not be worried since the Android 7.0 Nougat upgrade option for Samsung Galaxy S7 edge will definitely come out soon.
