Owners of Galaxy S7-series phones are excited over Samsung’s Galaxy Beta Program. The company has enrolled select models in the US, UK, South Korea, and China to enroll in the Galaxy Beta Program. Participants will be able to try out Android 7.0 Nougat and provide feedback that will help engineers in development work.
The company will continue with the beta around mid-December. If you are inclined to enroll, download the Galaxy Beta Program application from Galaxy Apps. Complete the process by submitting an application form via the ‘Registration’ menu and putting in your Samsung account credentials.
The 7.0 Nougat update will pop up via the device’s Settings menu when it is manually checked for system updates. You also need to factor in that everyone who applies for the beta won’t be taken on board.
People residing in America must take note –Sprint (SM-G93xP), T-Mobile (SM-G93xT), and Verizon (SM-G93xV) models of the Galaxy S7 and S7 edge can apply for the program. S7 edge Olympic Games and Batman Injustice Editions are not supported for testing beta version.
In the UK, mobile phone users with unlocked models of the S7 and S7 edge are eligible. The Olympic Games and Batman Injustice Editions of the S7 edge are exceptions here as well. In South Korean, SKTelecom (SM-G93xS), KT (SM-G93xK), and LG U+ (SM-G93xL) variants make it. Again, the S7 edge Olympic Games and Batman Injustice Editions are missing from the list. None of the models in China are compatible for the program.
This is at least a positive news for Samsung amidst a slew of bad news for Samsung Android phone.
