US Cellular has begun rolling out Android 7.0 Nougat to Galaxy S7 and S7 Edge customers on its network
Android 7 Nougat is finally coming to long-suffering Samsung Galaxy S7 and S7 Edge users on the US Cellular network, some eight months after the mobile operating system was released. Owners of the devices on other networks, such as Verizon Wireless, received the update a month ago, while Nougat was available on devices such as the Nexus 6, Nexus 5X, and Pixel C have had it since their launch.
US Cellular began pushing the operating system update to users on April 21, 2017, and it will have been made available to all users within a few days, according to a Tech Times report. The software can be installed as an over-the-air update. It can also be downloaded to a desktop computer using Samsung’s Kies software and then installed on the Galaxy S7 or S7 Edge device using a USB cable.
US Cellular is offering Android Nougat 7.0.0, but this version is already out of date because Nougat 7.1.2 was released on April 7, 2017. Google has already released developer previews of the next major release of Android, currently known as Android “O.” The final release of this software is expected in the third quarter of 2017.
