Samsung may update the Note 7 to Android N before the end of 2016

Samsung has been criticized in the past for not updating its Android devices in a timely manner. The South Korean electronics giant, however, may be looking to change that starting with the new Galaxy Note 7.

According to the Korea Times, Samsung Mobile president Koh Dong-jin said the company is looking to update its devices to Android 7.0 Nougat within the next two to three months. An update before the end of 2016 would be a new record for Samsung, although not all versions will likely receive the update at the same time. Unlocked models tend to be updated quicker and are not subject to carrier approval like smartphones sold in the US.

The Galaxy Note 7 will go on sale in the US on August 19. The phone features a 5.7-inch QuadHD display, a quad-core Snapdragon 820 processor, 12-megapixel camera and an included S-Pen stylus.

“We are considering launching Note 7 with a 128 GB internal storage capacity for the Chinese market, even though the handset made its global debut with a 64 GB memory,” Koh Dong-jin, president of Samsung Electronics’ mobile communications division, said at a press conference in Seoul, Thursday.

The remark came amid local reports that Galaxy Note 7 may be available with 6 GB of RAM and 128 GB internal storage for Asia’s largest market.

“It is very important for us to offer up-to-date information with the new OS, but what’s more crucial is to build a stable and seamless platform for users,” Koh said. “That’s why we are planning to do enough beta testing before any OS updates.”
