Samsung Galaxy Note 7 Android 7.0 Nougat Release Update
Samsung could begin the rollout of the Android 7.0 Nougat for Galaxy Note 7 as early as October. Information came from Samsung Electronics President of Mobile Communications Koh Dong-jin. According to the executive, Samsung plans to start the beta testing for the system soon, ahead of the start of the official updates.
“It is very important for us to offer up-to-date information with the new OS, but what’s more crucial is to build a stable and seamless platform for users,” Korea Times quoted Samsung Electronics President of Mobile Communications Koh Dong-jin previously in a press conference for the Galaxy Note 7.

As to what Samsung is planning with the Note 7, the executive has this to say: “We are considering launching Note 7 with a 128 GB internal storage capacity for the Chinese market, even though the handset made its global debut with a 64 GB memory.”
“We will continue to accept different needs from each marketplace, and respond by releasing localized products by changing memory capacity or color,” he said.
As for maximizing the features of the Android 7.0 Nougat OS, the software will reportedly come with a split-screen feature. While some Android devices already have multitasking, Android N will be the first to include or have it built in the OS, according to Pocket-Lint.
People will be able to launch the split-screen feature either through pressing and holding the recent apps button, or digging into the settings a little bit. Just go to Settings > About Phone, then tap on the “Build number” repeatedly until the user enables Developer options. Swipe to the top of the screen, press and hold the settings cog until there is a prompt saying System UI Tuner has been included in the settings.
