This is exactly what your brand-new Note 7 may be like following the update.
Here you go, folks. As guaranteed, after getting a new Universe Note 7 yesterday – having a battery from the different supplier – Samsung is moving out an update to any or all Note 7s, pre- and publish-recall, separating the haves in the have-nots.
Particularly, my Note 7, the main one using the new, safer battery, includes a eco-friendly battery indicator instead of the standard white-colored, which Google has forced on all producers since Android 4.4 KitKat. Ironically, before this, all Samsung phones shipped with eco-friendly battery symbols.
Samsung received special dispensation for that vary from Google itself because of remarkable conditions.
Not just may be the battery indicator now eco-friendly, however the Note 7 includes a handy eco-friendly battery gauge within the Restart menu, that is utilized by holding lower the ability button anytime. This really is another, more explicit method of Samsung notifying its customers, and also the public, this new batch of Note 7s differs from the remembered one, having a battery licensed from the different supplier.
If you’re running any Note 7, new or old, your phone ought to be obtaining the update beginning today both in the U.S. and Canada (we verified this on Verizon and Rogers models). The update blurb succinctly sums some misconception for all of us:
“For new devices, the battery icon is green after the update. If the battery icon is white after the update, information on the safety recall will be provided.”
The update is all about 50MB, and should not take too lengthy to set up. It does not modify the security patch level, nor will it add other things towards the operating-system this really is strictly to create remembered phones less operable, and new phones more apparent.
