The Samsung Galaxy S7 and Galaxy S7 Edge is getting December security updates, and India will also see the update. The size of the update would vary depending upon your current version, and it carries the Android December security update plus other stability improvements and bug fixes as well.
The Samsung Galaxy S7 is getting the software version G90XXU1BPL2 whereas the Galaxy S7 Edge is receiving G935XXU1BPL2 version. The users of Galaxy S7 and Galaxy S7 Edge users can manually check if they update arrived by going to:
Setting > About Device > Download updates manually
The update also comes with some new features. However, it is still unfamiliar as to what exactly those features might be.
Earlier this month, Google started rolling out the Android 7.1.1 Nougat update, which comes with the December security patch, Nexus, Pixel, and Android One users.
Last month Samsung rolled out its ‘Galaxy Beta Program’ for its Galaxy S7 and Galaxy S7 Edge users to test the latest Android 7.0 Nougat on their handsets. Having said that, the company recently said responding to a user’s query that will skip the Android 7.0 Nougat roll out for their smartphones all in all and go directly to the Android 7.1.1 Nougat. The Android 7.1.1 Nougat comes with new emojis that symbolises gender equality, support for GIF images right from the keyboard, and app shortcuts directly from the home screen. Users will be able to get access to actions considering the app just by long-pressing the icon.
Google also rolled out Google Play distribution for the seven-day period which ended on 5th December, which explained that Android 7.0 Nougat is now running on 0.4 percent active Android devices. This is a relatively minor 0.1 percent improvement from the data which was shared by a popular search giant a month ago.
