Every user of the Galaxy S7 and S7 Edge will be more than happy this month, as the newest Android 7.0 Nougat is coming up to their devices. The upgrade can begin starting from Marth 20th. The upgrade is brought up by Rogers and it makes a list of devices that will receive this update. The S7 and S7 Edge are among that list, getting an upgrade from Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow, to Android 7.0 Nougat. If there is also a problem with receiving the update if it doesn’t come automatically on March 20th, every you can force it manually. You just simply go to Settings, then go to About Phone, and next click on System Updates, where you can check if the update is ready for download on your device.
The Android 7.0 Nougat upgrade brings both system and visual upgrades of the devices. It has Just-in-Time (JIT) built, and what is most important feature about it, it reduces the amount of RAM that each app is taking. If you are asking how is this possible, well, it is all enabled by the JIT system itself. With the lower usage of RAM, there is more availability for optimization on every device, which bring even more efficiency.
The Vulkan API will also allow your graphics to look more realistic, with better reflections and less motion blur, and more life-like water reflections.
With that ability now, with the lower usage of RAM, there is an open opportunity for every device to do multitasking much more easily. This means that there can be two applications running at once. This feature not only that sounds great, it is also true and plausible with the Nougat update. Quick Switch will also allow you to jump between the apps just by double tapping the app switcher. It only switches you to your recent opened apps though, but there is a lot of space for optimizing this app.
With all of these features enabled, there is also an opportunity for saving your battery power. With the less usage of RAM, the battery won’t be struggling that much and it won’t be using that much of power.
From the graphic part though, the notification panel will receive some improvements, allowing you to optimize the drop down panel by yourself which can include your most used apps.
Below you can see the list made up by Rogers who will receive the Android 7.0 Nougat update.
