A new Android Nougat beta is currently rolling out to Galaxy S7/S7 edge users enrolled in Samsung’s Galaxy Beta Program, which allows them to test out upcoming software ahead of everyone else. This is the third beta released so far; it’s currently rolling out to users in the UK, but we suppose it will be later on seeded to all other beta testers as well.
Rolling under the G935FXXU1ZPKK build name, it brings a bunch of new features to the Galaxies. You can change the layout of the Quick Panel toggles and choose between 3×3, 4×3, and 5×3 grids. You can also choose whether the brightness slider should appear at the very top of your toggles, similar to what most Samsung users are used to, or neatly tuck it inside the expanded Quick Toggles view, which would likely suit fans of minimalist interfaces.
Seems that the Edge feed panel for the Galaxy S7 edge has been nixed – supposedly, this one will make a subsequent comeback or be substituted for a better alternative.
Samsung warns that select users have some issues with this beta build, namely the screen not lighting up immediately after you wake up the phone, which is definitely making it a bad choice for a daily driver.
Yesterday, Samsung released a full user manual detailing all the new changes, you can check it out right below.
