As you might have heard, it has been reported that the Galaxy Beta Program for the Galaxy S7 and S7 Edge could be coming to an end soon, which means that it probably won’t be long until we see the Android 7.1.1 Nougat update pushed out to both phones. The good news is that it looks like owners of either device won’t have to wait much longer.
Samsung has recently confirmed that come January 2017, they are expected to roll out the update to both devices. In a message sent to Galaxy Beta Program participants, as obtained by SamMobile, the company wrote, “We would do our best to distribute the official version in January as soon as possible.”
Note that Samsung isn’t promising the release in January, but rather that is their goal and they will try to release it if they can. The reason they can’t make any promises is because it is possible that maybe there could be some last minute bugs that could delay the update, as is the case with beta tests, so better not to overpromise and underdeliver, right?
In any case Galaxy S7 and S7 Edge owners will just have to sit tight and wait for the update, but given that we’re only a couple of days away from 2016 and January 2017, we guess you won’t have to wait too long, hopefully.
