Samsung has officially announced the rolling out of Android 7.0 Nougat to their premium handsets Galaxy S7 and Galaxy S7 Edge. However, the said version of the latest android beta program has limitations due to available spots, device variants and duration, according to ZDNET.
To be able for the users to download Android 7.0 Nougat to their Galaxy S7 handsets, a Samsung Account is required for them from Samsung Member app or Galaxy Apps depending on their place of residence or country. Samsung has already warned that the program is a first-come, first-served basis and once accepted, users are free to report any bugs and issues related to the update.

On the other hand, only unlocked Galaxy S7 handsets are also qualified to join in U.K., while the official date for an imminent rollout in China is currently being finalized by Samsung but is expected to arrive sooner.
