    Ok, so, figured I would eventually see this coming. Typically I see a waterfall of posts about this subject, so here it goes...

    After reading numerous Android and Samsung news sites, I am seeing a lot of differences in news.

    For example:

    • It will be 7.0 and not 7.11.
    • It was Beta tested in the US and other parts of the world, but it was "leaked" that it would be going OTA on 01/17/2017 for Europe.
    • And so on...


    Too much conflicting information...

    Does anyone have any reliable information on the rollout or is it pretty much a speculation and waiting game at this point?

    Since Samsung itself hasn't released anything official, nope. Everything else cannot be 'solid' since it's not coming directly from them. What we DO know is that the beta is officially over and some people HAVE received the final build on their phones, so rollout is imminent. If you're on a carrier, however, things might be different. And since most people who bought an US Unlocked Model are still waiting on the latest security updates, the OS upgrade might also take a while to reach those. Again, sorry, but nothing 'solid'.

    IMHO February/March at the earliest for me since I am on Verizon, last update I have seen from VZ was 11/16/16 and I am on October 1st security patch to give you some idea how fast & up to date VZ is with updates to the s7e so getting Nougat anytime this month seems like a pipedream

    You know, that is the weird part about Verizon...(happens to be my carrier as well)...Verizon states that ALL of their phones are sold "unlocked". So you'd think being on Verizon means you get the updates OTA directly from Samsung - WRONG!

    I would have thought after the Note fiasco Samsung would want to keep consumers onside, but the lack of info is seriously peeing me off. Surely Samsung know when they are going to start the roll out and what version is going to be supplied.
    What's the big secret, how hard is it to keep people informed.

    Factory Unlocked units get their updates from Samsung. SIM Unlocked carrier branded units still have carrier modifications in the OS (i.e. bloatware), so the updates come from the carrier, even if they don't lock the device.

    I was in the beta for Verizon and the experience for me was smooth and essentially flawless. There is no reason to think it should take until March for them to roll out this update.

    The Beta tests for the European and the US Verizon, Sprint and TMO Beta was 7.0. So, if you're in any of those groups, that's what you'll get.

    I've said all along that, with the N7 fiasco, it's in Samsung's best interest to get updates rolled out ASAP (especially for features that add N7 capabilities to the S7 and S7E). While carriers can gum that up, I think it's also in the carrier's best interest, too.

    TMobile has been quite quick in releasing updates since the Note 5. Can't remember which phone exactly (I think it was the Note 5) but they even released the update to Marshmallow before it hit unlocked models. And they have been fairly quick (until last month, at least) with security updates, so I don't think it'll take TMo that long, not for the S7/S7 Edge at least.

    Getting into the beta was hard, so don't feel bad about it... That being said, the update is starting to roll out now for, guess who?, those lucky enough to have been in the beta.

    Plus, TMO was part of the Beta. Why would it take a long time from then to release to everyone? That would fly in the face of the whole point of participating in the Beta to begin with.

    Hang in there! It's rolling out eventually. Right now it seems it's only for beta program users, but I'd say within the next couple of months it should be fully rolling out.

    They have to put on all their bloatware on it and then test it.. so yea march is more likely..

    The Verizon Beta has their bloatware on it. That's why it's the Verizon Beta. Vz Navigator, Kindle, Caller Name ID, Slacker Radio, Support and Protection, VVM (not what i'd call bloatware but Verizon's none the less), etc. are all on my phone with the Beta installed right now.

    Could be next week for European users

    https://www.sammobile.com/2017/01/11...-january-17th/
    And could be next year for America. I didn't get Marshmallow on my T-Mobile S5 (I know, I was lucky to get it at all, but then the ill-fated S6 was Sammy's flagship device at the time) until 9 mos. after it appeared on Google devices. Besides, even if Google does release it tomorrow, the carriers will find a way to bog it down and uglify it. I'm just glad Marshmallow works as well as it does.
