Electronics major Samsung will not only be introducing new features to its Galaxy S7 Edge users (read Android 7.0 Nougat) but also focus on cosmetic changes. According to Sammobile website, the South Korean tech firm has rolled out a new Android Nougat Beta for its flagship smartphone. The update is said to be limited to UK and South Korea users as of now.
Amongst the changes, the new beta brings transparent notifications on the lock screen. As a result, when beta users receive notifications now, they will still be able to view its image in the background. Texts, such as ‘Use fingerprint or swipe screen to unlock’ and even the notification bar on top, will be transparent.
However, the changelog of the fifth Android Nougat Beta for Galaxy S7 Edge smartphones doesn’t mention anything about this change and talks only about fixes. The beta also fixes an intermittent rebooting issue amongst other bugs.
The firm is yet to roll out Android 7.0 Nougat to any of its devices. The dates are expected to be revealed at the upcoming CES 2017 event.
Talking about CES 2017, Samsung may introduce its new Galaxy A 2017 smartphones. It dropped its first teaser of the new Galaxy A series smartphones that have been making the rounds online as part of numerous rumours and leaks. The teaser image was posted through Samsung Malaysia’s official Facebook page.
The teaser read, “It all begins with A. Hold Your Breath” . There’s also an image of water, indicating that the new devices may well be water-resistant. The image caption says “Something ‘A’waits you. #A 2017 live unplanned.”
