Android Software Updates.pngWhen a new Android Operating System update is announced by Google there are a few steps that take place before it becomes ready for your device.  The manufacturer receives the update and customises the software for the device and mobile carriers in each country.  Once this is completed they’ll send the update to the carriers for testing.

 

For more info on this process check out our page:

 

Android Device Updates - What's The Process?

 

The below table provides info on the latest Android updates we’ve received for testing and approval as of 22/12/2016. If no info is listed, it means we haven't received the build or any new details from the manufacturer.

 

When a version is marked as completed it means testing has been finished on our end and approved.  Each manufacturer has a process for releasing updates to devices & once we approve the update, it’s sent back to the manufacturer to be released through their standard update processes. Generally, updates are rolled out progressively, where it’s made available for a small number of users (5% for example) initially. If no unforeseen problems pop up, it’ll be gradually made available to more & more users over a period of a couple of weeks.

Still no news on Nougat on S7/S7 Edge? I read that Vodafone has been doing the testings about 5 days ago.

The Australian android update process is a joke and we all know it. At least we are on 6.0.1 with the S7/edge with December security patch. Nougat would make a nice Christmas present from Optus but I won't hold my breathe as they most likely haven't even received it from Sammy yet. We cannot compare Optus and Vodafone it's like potatoes and tomatoes. I would expect by late January early February we will get Android 7.x for the S7/edge. If you want it now grab the beta and flash it, it's very stable even beta 1.

@savage01I am not part of the Galaxy Beta Program so I guess we just have to wait for the official release. Like you said, it won't happen not until another couple of months 🙁😕

You don't need to be in the beta program. The official beta 1 is floating around on the internet to flash via Odin.

I just hope we get 7.1.1 and not 7.0.

@TheFirst Yes, I read that today too.  And apparently, Australian carriers are not jumping straight to 7.1 So, it seems we'll be getting 7.0 in Jan/Feb Smiley Frustrated

Hey guys, we can only test the updates that are provided to us from the manufacturers. Once it's been tested then we send it back for deployment by manufacturer.
