According to various reports on Twitter and elsewhere, T-Mobile this evening has stared rolling out Android 7.0 Nougat to its Galaxy S7 and Galaxy S7 edge models. The update comes complete with the February 1st security patches in place. It appears that T-Mobile and Samsung are starting the rollout with users who had been beta testing the software and will expand it from there.

The update comes in at 117MB and brings all of the features you’ve come to expect with Nougat updates. New features include things such as various user interface tweaks, notification tweaks, improvements to Multi-Window, and more.
