The Android Nougat operating system is finally rolling out to Samsung's top phones, the Galaxy S7 and the S7 Edge. The Nougat update was first unveiled back in August last year. And it's taken about five months for it to show up on the Galaxy S7 phones. But it's not on all Galaxy S7s just yet. The update was first spotted by the blog SAMMOBILE, as it popped up on some unlocked european versions of the phones. But for Galaxy S7 owners in the US, you may have to wait for your wireless carrier to push out the update. So don't hold your breath, sometimes carriers drag their feet and take weeks longer. Google's Android 7.0 Nougat OS adds features such as bundled notifications, direct replies, better ways to save power, and of course, the most important feature of all, new emojis. Samsung's flagship phones are among some of the last profile phones to get the update. Google's own devices are always first to get the operating system updates.
