Samsung Galaxy S7 appears on GFXBench with Android 7.0 Nougat

Google released the final version of Android 7.0 Nougat on 22nd of August. The update was rolled out for compatible Nexus and Android One devices. However, OEMs like Sony, HTC and Motorola have already shared a list of smartphones which will receive the Nougat update. Talking about Samsung, the Galaxy Note7 and Galaxy S7 duo will undoubtedly be the first ones to receive the Nougat update, and, it seems that Samsung might release the update soon as the Galaxy S7 has appeared on GFXBench with Android 7.0 Nougat.


While there’s nothing new with the GFXBench listing of the Galaxy S7, it does show Android 7.0 Nougat in the Operating Systems section. Well, this means that Samsung is testing the Galaxy S7 (and probably the Galaxy S7 edge and Galaxy Note7 as well) with Android Nougat on board.

Samsung may not be the fastest when it comes to software updates, however, it has improved its record of rolling out both version updates and security patches to its smartphones lately. While there’s no news from Samsung as to when it will start rolling out the Nougat update for its smartphones, it is without a doubt that flagships like Galaxy S7, S7 edge and Note7 will be the first in line to receive the update.

By the way, do you own any Samsung smartphone? Which version of Android is it running?
