A second chance to test Nougat on the GS7 — but it's not yet clear how many countries are included.
It appears Samsung has opened up the Galaxy Beta program to more users in the UK, following the initial rollout earlier this month. This gives Galaxy S7 and S7 edge owners a second change to try pre-release versions of Nougat for the phones, after the first wave of places were quickly snapped up.
As before, you just need to download the Galaxy Beta app and hit the "Registration" button, then follow the instructions.
There's been talk that Samsung may also open up the beta program to more countries, however we've yet to confirm this. So far, though, we were able to sign up for the program on a UK-spec device and update to the latest beta build, whereas last week the program was full. (Several users over on XDA are reporting the same.) If you'd previously flashed the first (leaked) beta build, this is your chance to get up-to-date on the latest build — Samsung has already pushed out two updated betas in quick succession as it makes changes and improvements to its Nougat firmware.
So if you weren't able to sign up for the beta program during the first wave, it's worth trying again now. And be sure to let us know if you're successful down in the comments!
