Samsung and LG Smartphones Receive Android 7.0 Nougat Update
The Android 7.0 Nougat update will be coming on the unlocked versions of the Samsung Galaxy 7 (US) and the Galaxy S7 Edge (UK) smartphone devices. They operating system will arrive following the Galaxy S8’s global release and before the next release of a new Android version.
Apparently, the Android 7.0 Nougat requires quite a large amount of space, and it might lower the anticipation of several fans. However, most of the users are quite excited to try out the changes and the performance boost that the Nougat update will provide for the OS. The update is quite sizeable, at approximately 1.2GB, so proper care should be taken to ensure that enough space is available prior to the installation. Besides this, apparently, users will have to charge the handset via a WiFi connection prior to installing the Android 7.0 Nougat. This is done to ensure a smoother experience.
The update is currently available for owners of the Galaxy S7 and the Galaxy S7 Edge. If it didn’t come automatically, then you can manually trigger the update by going into the Settings tab and afterwards hit About to prompt the update into gear.
LG’s Stylo 2V is also warranted to get its Android 7.0 Nougat patch quite soon. Despite the fact that this handset is rather new on the market, having been released in October with the Marshmallow Android 6.0 OS version onboard, there are some rumors that suggest the company will be wanting to upgrade to the Nougat update too. This, however, has not been officially confirmed, and it only stems from the fact that an Android 7.0 Nougat source code has been apparently uploaded on LG’s website. The LG Stylo 2V has seen some updates previously, but most of them had to do with several security issues the handset has been faced with.
