T-Mobile issued a sweet treat to owners of the Galaxy S7 and Galaxy S7 Edge this morning in the form of an update to Android Nougat. The update may have actually begun rolling out last night to those participating in the Nougat beta, but it now seems to be rolling out to non-beta testers.
The update arrives as software build UVU4BQB1 and weighs in at a cool 1.5GB. If you are wanting to download this bad boy right away, make sure you have plenty of battery juice.
Once updated, you’ll actually get a fresh new interface in many areas. The notification shade is cleaner, the settings menu is completely re-done, and you’ll even get to choose the screen resolution displayed (Tip: It likely defaults after updating to FHD, so be sure to bump to QHD if that’s how you roll.). If you owned the Note 7 at any point during its short life, then this UI will be very familiar. It’s Samsung’s best ever, in my opinion.
Outside of the new UI changes, this is Android 7.0 Nougat, so you get Nougat fun like responding to notifications from within notifications, improved multi window functionality, quicker system updates, and more.
To check for the update, head into Settings>Software update.
