When 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 information on the latest Android updates we’ve received for testing and approval as of 31/01/2017. If no information 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 and 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, for example the manufacturers might make the update available for a small number of users (i.e. 5%) initially; then if no unforeseen problems pop up, it’ll gradually be made available to more and more users over the following weeks.

Sorry all, we don't have any updates re testing Nougat on the S7 at present. Will hopefully have some good news soon.

Sighs

 

Nexus and Pixel are currently getting first dibs into 7.1.2 through the Google Beta program. 

 

Looks like we have to wait until the release of GS8/GS8 Plus/Pro to use Nougat and also to bring our business somewhere else.

Your post says 'Offical Yes' but it should be more like 'Offical NO'. Typical Optus #fail

No word as yet ThomsonT :/ We'll certainly post an update when we do know.

 

Sorry to hear that you feel this way Panga Smiley Sad Is there something we can help you out with?
