[Update: Released in Europe] Breaking: Galaxy S7 Nougat update rollout halted

Avatar

Update [January 17, 2017]: Samsung has released the Android 7.0 Nougat update for Galaxy S7 devices in Europe today, as various readers of ours from UK and Germany have confirmed to us. Either the rumors from yesterday about the Nougat OTA rollout suspension were not true, or the issue seems to be related to Qualcomm version of the S7 devices in China, as the European Exynos variant is receiving the update on time, as was revealed earlier. For Europe, build no. of the Samsung Nougat update is G930FXXU1DPLT and G935FXXU1DPLT respectively, which can be downloaded from our firmwares pages here: Galaxy S7 firmware | S7 Edge firmware

Samsung rolled out the official Android 7.0 Nougat update to Galaxy S7 and S7 Edge device last week, but as per recent reports from China, it seems like the rollout is being halted and another beta release with build number G9350ZCU2ZQA4 is being released to Galaxy S7 Edge devices in the country.

The update notification also confirms that it’s indeed the Nougat Beta 7 for the Galaxy S7 Edge. The update comes in at 213.30MB in size. Also, the update size is very close to the official Nougat release which Samsung rolled out last week with build DPLT.

According to industry sources, the update is being halted due to bugs/issues present on the release.

Since the screenshots are in Chinese, we couldn’t understand the full changelog for the Nougat beta 7, but here’s what we could gather so far:

  • Stability and performance enhancements
  • New enhanced power saving mode

Samsung had officially announced the end of Galaxy Beta program earlier this month. However, it seems like the beta updates are still very much alive.

  1. I am in the Beta program and have not seen any announcement about a new beta update yet. This is for the S7 Edge on Sprint.

    1. S7 Nougat build would arrive in USA only after it’s out for global variant. We think it would be in early-February that you’ll see a notification from Sprint about the stable Android 7.0 build, not 7.1.1.

  3. I spoke too Samsung yesterday and they said they have no idea when it will be out. Sound about right!!

  4. S7/S7Eedge in China did get a N Beta 6 earlier this month, even after Samsung had closed the Beta Program around the world, and prior to notices for January 17 update release for G935F variant.
    Continuation of beta updates for China variant could be independent of the G935F variant.
    Fingers crossed for an update roll out later on today!
