It's been eight months since Google unleashed its Android 7.0 "Nougat" update to the masses, and in that time, various devices have gotten the newer version, with some still waiting. For example, the Samsung Galaxy S7 and S7 edge on AT&T got Nougat in mid-February, along with Sprint users, and those on T-Mobile. A little later down the line, March brought the update to users with devices on Verizon. In April, users on US Cellular can rejoice, as the update is heading for their devices.
If you own one of the variants of the S7 (SM-G930R4) and S7 edge (SM-G935R4) which are compatible with the network, you'll see Android 7.0 being offered, with a download size of 1,5 GB. On the S7, the firmware version supplementing the update is G930R4TYU4BQC5, with product code USC. The S7 edge's firmware version is G935R4TYU4BQC5, with the same product code.
Some of the features from Android Nougat, that the carrier highlights, are as follows:
- Nougat speaks your language: Bring your words to life with updated and entirely new Emoji, and the ability to use two or more languages at the same time.
- Be in two places at once: Now switch between apps with a double tap, or run one app side by side with another.
- Stay in the moment: Now it is easier to take action with more customized settings and direct reply options right from notifications without the need to open an app.
- Security matters: New features, such as direct boot and file-based encryption, help protect your device and keep your data private.
According to SamMobile, the new version comes with Android's April security update.
