Samsung Extends Registration on Galaxy S7, Galaxy S7 EDGE Android Nougat Beta; Final Rollout to Other Devices in December? [VIDEO]
Samsung reportedly reopens the registration of Galaxy S7 and Galaxy S7 EDGE handsets to Android Nougat beta program. The second phase slot is only available in the United Kingdom while the United States will follow soon. Read more details here for the schedule of Android Nougat beta releases to other Samsung devices!
Android Nougat Beta Registration to Samsung Galaxy S7, Galaxy S7 EDGE
It's good news to all Galaxy S7 and Galaxy S7 EDGE users who failed to have their handsets registered to Android Nougat beta program since Samsung has reportedly reopens the registrations to all users who reside in the United Kingdom, GSM Arena reported. For the users in the United States, the registration will be reopened soonest.
Accordingly, Samsung has provided no information as to how many slots are available but users are advised to hurry as the company did not divulge as to when the registration closes. Users need to download the Galaxy Beta Program app first, select "Registration" from the menu and fill out the application form to be able to enroll in the program.
However, this step does not guarantee an automatic selection for Android Nougat download. Samsung will be the one to select the beta tester from the pool of applications and will get notified through e-mail once they are chosen, Phone Arena reported.
Aside from the reopening of registration, three updates for Nougat beta testers have also rolled out by Samsung with added features and security patches as well. If rumors are to be believed, the official rolling out of Android Nougat to other Samsung devices such as Galaxy S6, Galaxy S6 EDGE, Galaxy Note 5 and Tab S2 are expected in December.
