Samsung Galaxy Note 7 to Get Android 7.0 Nougat in 2 to 3 Months


Samsung announced its flagship phablet Galaxy Note 7 earlier this month, and the smartphone was launched in India on Thursday. Even though the latest entry into Samsung’s Galaxy Note series will come running Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow out of the box, the South-Korean company has reportedly said that Android 7.0 Nougat is making its way to the smartphone in next two to three months.

According to a report by The Korea Times, Samsung Mobile chief Koh Dong-jin revealed the timeline, and said, “It is very important for us to offer up-to-date information with the new OS, but what’s more crucial is to build a stable and seamless platform for users.”

“That’s why we are planning to do enough beta testing before any OS updates,” Koh added.

Android 7.0 Nougat will bring improvements like multi-window support, enhanced notifications, revamped doze, number blocking, and more.

The Galaxy Note 7 has been priced at Rs. 59,900, and will become available in the India from September 2 in Gold Platinum, Silver Titanium, and Black Onyx colour variants. Galaxy Note 7 variant in India will come with Samsung Exynos 8890 Octa SoC (four cores clocked at 2.3GHz and four cores clocked at 1.6GHz), coupled with 4GB of LPDDR4 RAM.
