The Android Nougat updates began rolling out to some Samsung Galaxy S7 and S7 Edge users after Samsung officially ended its beta program last month. General release of the Nougat 7.0 update may come soon after the successful run of the so-called Samsung "soak test" where a few lucky users get to taste the full features of the Nougat 7.0 update.
