Samsung Galaxy S7 and Galaxy S7 edge users might receive the Android 7.1.1 Nougat update directly on their smartphones. A XDA forum user posted a screenshot which says, “We are pleased to announce that we will support Android 7.1.1 from the official N OS release.” Samsung had earlier released its ‘Galaxy Beta Program’ allowing Galaxy S7 and Galaxy S7 edge users to test Android 7.1 Nougat on their devices.
But the South Korean smartphone giant did not give out the final dates for when the Nougat update will roll out. Now, according to the screenshot, Samsung might directly upgrade its smartphones to Android 7.1.1, skipping the release of Android 7.0 Nougat. However, we cannot verify the authenticity of the screenshot.
Android Nougat 7.1.1, which was put out in the developer preview in November, is out of beta. Google has officially released the Android 7.1.1 update for the Pixel, Pixel XL, Nexus 6P, Nexus 5X, Nexus 9, Pixel tablet, Nexus player and General Mobile 4G (Android One) devices.
Android 7.1.1 brings with it features such as app shortcuts, reset button, smart storage, new camera app, new emojis, support tab and moves menu. The new emoji collection in Android 7.1.1 is available in both genders.
Android 7.1.1 is bringing App shortcuts to select Nexus devices, including the Nexus 6P, Nexus 5X, Nexus 6. Smart Storage, on the other hand, automatically removes old backed-up photos/videos from the phone to clear up space.
The new camera app brings automatic Exposure, Viewfinder grid modes, Smart Burst and AE/FE locking. There’s an image keyboard as well that lets users choose and send stickers, emojis and even GIFs and images from your messaging app of choice.
