It remains unconfirmed if the devices will get the Nougat update this month. Nevertheless, the remaining weeks in August may give Samsung enough time to evaluate the performance of the software and make it available by September.

Android 7.0 Nougat comes with a bunch of useful features. Data Saver automatically reduces app activities running in the background once the phone's monthly data allowance is running low. Nougat also makes a reply option available across all incoming messages so users can immediately respond right when the message arrives without ever launching any apps.

Quick app switching, meanwhile, makes it easier for users to switch between two apps last used. By double tapping the multitasking button, switching app has never become this seamless and useful, most especially when copying and pasting texts.
