Word of Android Nougat on the Samsung Galaxy S7 and S7 edge has been circulating for some time now. Last we heard, the Korean giant was gearing up for a field test in the UK, but that was later scrapped. However, it’s not all bad news, as a beta was indeed launched today, only in the OEMs home market.
The beta test is live for eligible and registered users of both the Galaxy S7 and the S7 edge for carriers SK Telecom, KT corporation and LG Uplus. The ROMs have the model numbers G930SKSU1ZPK4, G930KKKU1ZPK4 and G930LKLU1ZPK4 for the S7 and G935SKSU1ZPK4, G935KKKU1ZPK4 and G935LKLU1ZPK4 for the edged version, respectively. The OTA itself seems to weigh 1295MB or so, but that is not necessarily indicative of the size of any future final release.
We also have a few screenshots of the new interface for you to check out. Grace UX seems to be maturing nicely.
If you are using an eligible device on one of the aforementioned networks, the steps to sign up include getting the Galaxy Beta Program and then, weirdly enough, downloading the Samsung members app and waiting for a confirmation there.
