The Android 7.0 Nougat recently announced a beta program that is set to give the world a little taste of what is to come. Two of Samsung's best mobile phones to date are bound to receive this particular mobile operating system, and now, fans may be able to anticipate the next move that Google is up to.

For those unaware, the Android 7.0 Nougat has been made available only to an elite group of Android mobile devices, which are now on the verge of getting more as the months pass. To give the patrons of Samsung a bit of what the Android 7.0 Nougat can bring forth, the Beta 3 laid out improvements and attributes. One such is the change in the Quick Panel use, which dons a 4x3 button layout, button grid menu, brightness color menu and others to name.

Recent reports added the change that the Android 7.0 Nougat Beta 3 gave to the status bar icon and the clock, considering the space between them needed improvement. The multi-window, notifications and lock screen are also some that were improved, along with Edge feeds and the general resistance. Not everything was considered Christmas, however, as some Wi-Fi anomalies are still unaddressed, as well as screen activation.

As for the Samsung Galaxy S7 and the Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge, a beta update is expected to rectify the aforementioned. Though no actual release date has been noted for the Android 7.0 Nougat pertaining to the two devices, there are some who claim that the beta will run all the way to mid-December. Backing this up is the potential that the OS could take place by month's end or early January 2017.

The particular firmware version of the update is labelled as G935FXXU1ZPKK, and fans are urged to take note of this to know if their device has received it. It is measured at approximately 300MB, which can be downloaded manually via the Software Update option. Keep posted for Android 7.0 Nougat news and updates here at GamenGuide.
