You should note that there is no guarantee about the fact that Android 7.0 Nougat will be available to Galaxy S7 edge users even if you have enrolled for the Android 8.0 Nougat beta.
Android 7.0 Nougat update available to Galaxy S7 edge only
As of writing this, the update has been pushed only to Galaxy S7 edge. The standard Galaxy S7 will also be eligible for an update but there is no confirmation. You can try if you have the phone to check if there is any new update.
We expect the release of Android 7.0 Nougat beta builds in a phased manner in the upcoming days. Samsung has pointed out that the beta build, which is currently in circulation is not the official version. Moreover, the beta build will not offer all the features that will be included with the final release.
Expect errors in the Android 7.0 Nougat beta build of Galaxy S7 edge
If you installed the beta version in your Galaxy S7 edge, you need to expect few errors. Hence, it is advisable to capture a backup of all the important data before initiating the upgrade.
The main purpose behind the launch of Android 7.0 Nougat beta is to gather feedback from customers and developers. The final release will feature the bug fixes and improvements.
Meanwhile, Samsung will not release another flagship smartphone in 2016 even though Galaxy Note 7 has been discontinued. The company has decided to increase production of the Galaxy S7 and Galaxy S7 edge in a bid to compete against iPhone 7, Google Pixel, LG V20 and Huawei Mate 9.
You should download the Galaxy Beta Program application from the Galaxy Apps store to test drive the beta releases of the upcoming Android 7 Nougat.
