Samsung is busy working on the Android 7.0 Nougat update for the Galaxy S7 and S7 edge. As we all know, the Galaxy Beta Program for Android 7.0 Nougat was launched a few weeks back and was soon followed by other OEMs. Much has been said about the platform but that’s normal because it’s not ready for public release yet. The S7 defaults to 1080p and we’re now on the second beta build.

We have yet to discover more about this software version but good thing Samsung already released an official guide for Nougat on the two Galaxy S7 phones. In this document, improvements and features are detailed for all the Galaxy S7/S7 edge users.

According to Samsung, the aim of the document is to introduce questions about Beta test and the differences in the ‘look’ and ‘functionality’ between the Marshmallow and Nougat. The mobile phones used here specifically are the S7 edge (model SM-G935F) and Galaxy S7(model SM-G930F).

Users part of the beta program are encouraged to send feedback to Samsung especially on UI and UX issues. You are free to download and test the program but you can also choose to quit anytime.

Check out the document and see for yourself how the Nougat is different from the Marshmallow. Some new features are illustrated including how to change display size, Always On Display enhancements, and direct reply from notifications.
