    Nougat Beta has been around for several months for Nexus devices. It has also been available to companies like Samsung so developers can get it integrated into their skin overlays. Samsung looks to have a pretty good start here. They have officially announced that they will have Nougat ready for the Note 7 within the next two or three months.

    While this may actually happen for some regions it is likely that US variants won't see the update for several months after the first update hits. Verizon devices won't see the update for a while after that. Still it is nice to see Samsung make this commitment to keep the device up to date!

    Isn't this what they said for the Note 5 and marshmallow, yet Note 5 didn't get marshmallow until around 6-7 months after release?

    It's what they basically say for every model, update it once, maybe twice, abandon.

    I believe the standard now is 2 major updates for a device. I wouldn't call it abandoned after that so much as the majority move to a new device in that time so it's a better allocation of resources to focus on current devices instead of older ones.

    I have yet to see anything in Android 7 that I feel I need or that Samsung hasn't been doing for years... I want to see some color and style added to the status bar again...
