According to some Galaxy S7 and Galaxy S7 owners writing on the xda-developers forum, Samsung is in the process of rolling out a software update meant to port some of the Note7’s exclusive features.

The Korean tech giant is attempting to make the Galaxy S7 and Galaxy S7 edge seem more attractive, especially to users who had to part with their phablet recently.

As you probably known by now, Samsung has announced it will be offering $100 credit towards the purchase of a different phone from its garden and for premium users the Galaxy S7 or Galaxy S7 Edge seems the obvious choice.
