Samsung Already Testing the Android N Update on Galaxy S7?

Although confirming via their carrier partners, Samsung has stayed silent on the exact timelines on when exactly could their users get a taste of Nougat, the latest Android version. Nexus 6P and Nexus 5X have already received OTA updates in the smartphone world, while devices like the LG V20 and the rumored Mi Note 2 Pro from Xiaomi as well as the Pixel phones from Google are expected to come with the same out of the box.


So if you recently upgraded to the latest Samsung flagship, which does not explode, you would be glad to know that Samsung is already testing Android 7.0 on the Galaxy S7. Typically, when the testing starts, it means the update is not too far away and we could even see the Nougat goodness on the Galaxy S7 as early as the end of the year 2016.

The information of the update comes from a Galaxy S7 spotted on Geekbench running Android 7.0. Worth noting from the screenshot that with the update, the benchmark score is virtually the same as that it is currently on the S7, maintaining a decent distance ahead of the iPhone 7 Plus, for those who love to go by the benchmark scores. The benchmark score shows the test being done on the SM-G930F, which is the Galaxy S7. Fair to assume given that the two phones have identical internals that the Nougat update for the S7 Edge would also not be too far behind.
