Samsung Android 7.0 Nougat Update

Samsung
Android keeps bringing new OS each passing year but OEMs fails to get their smartphone up to date with new Os features but that isn’t the case with Samsung. Samsung has started roll out of Android 7.0 Nougat update to its flagship devices. This update will first come to the premium Galaxy devices namely the Galaxy 7 and Galaxy 7 Edge.

Users with these devices are simply required to the Settings followed by About Phone section then System Updates to get the latest Android Os update. Samsung isn’t offering the latest version of the Nougat as Google’s own smartphone lineup of Pixel devices already comes loaded with the version 7.1.1 while Samsung is bringing 7.0 version update. The area of improvisation is slight between the two versions of the Nougat but it simply crowns Pixel device as the sole bearer of latest Android update.

What’s new in 7.0 Nougat?

Google has brought a wide range of functionalities and improvements on its Android platform with Nougat update last year. This includes support for the DayDream i.e. its VR platform in form of Screen Saver which offers splendid graphics and visuals to the users, quicker multi-tasking, multi-window support, viewing two Chrome tabs, Clear All button for recent apps, new installer animation and list goes on.

It also brings bundled notification for quickly getting through notification at a single go. A ‘Notification Importance’ setting is present in Nougat to set dedicated notification for important apps on the device. An enhanced version of the ‘Data Saver’ functionality comes with Nougat which helps users in saving ‘more’ on their mobile bills. Data Saver allows users to actively monitor their network usage data and even setting up notifications for the same effect.

Some new updates to the Samsung Galaxy S7 & S7 Edge

Samsung Galaxy S7 & S7 Edge comes loaded with the fingerprint scanner but Samsung has bumped up its functionality with a latest update. It brings the support for Samsung Pass which allows users to use their fingerprint to not just to unlock the device but also open certain apps, sites along with a pop-up window wherein users can run as many as five apps simultaneously.

This functionality of running five different apps together shouldn’t be confused with the spilt screen functionality already available on these flagship devices.For heavy users Samsung has brought a Performance mode which allows them to optimize certain aspects of the device to answer their specific needs. This includes making tweaks in device for enhanced gaming, entertainment, multimedia consumption or improving the battery life for longer usage.
