GS7 Nougat

Samsung Galaxy Beta Program members can now grab the fourth major update to the Android 7.0 Nougat beta for the Galaxy S7 and S7 edge. (The fifth build in total, including an early patch to fix a Facebook-related crash.)

Beta update notice

The new build ZPLH includes bug fixes, according to the notice going out to beta program members, while also claiming to remove the Samsung Notes app that was added a couple of builds back. (The app is still available on our devices after updating, so ¯\_(ツ)_/¯)

The Samsung Experience version added in the previous build has been removed too. What does that mean? Probably not a lot. Samsung has shied away from actually naming its UX, which is why some of us still use the clunky "TouchWiz" monicker.

We're not seeing any other significant changes in this update — it seems Samsung is just working to fix up any remaining bugs before the release becomes finalized. For what it's worth, this is the first changelog from Samsung to not mention a couple of longstanding bugs affecting some beta users — Wi-Fi connectivity issues, and delays in the screen activating in some cases. It's not clear whether this is because they've been fixed, or just for brevity. The release does note that future beta updates are coming, so we're not done with the Galaxy Beta program just yet.
