[Release Status] LineageOS 15.0 For Galaxy S7 and S7 Edge
We have seen a long journey from cupcake, donut, eclair, froyo, gingerbread, honeycomb, ice-cream Sandwich, Jellybean, KitKat, lollipop, Marshmallow, Nougat to Oreo. Don’t worry it’s not a list of sweets but Android versions till date. We have come a long way to Android 8.0 which is currently in beta version. The biggest strength of Android is that it is open source. This opened up the channels for innovation which lot of third party developers have capitalized on; Lineage OS being one of them.
LineageOS 15.0 is the new custom OS which is the successor to the earlier commercially successful CynogenMod. Lineage OS was officially launched in December 2016. LineageOS 13, 14.1 are out there and LineageOS 14.1 has already been successfully installed on 165 plus devices.
LineageOS 15.0 developers community has already come with a list of devices on which they would be making it available; Samsung S7
and S7 Edge is there on the list. And the list for LineageOS 15.0 too has reached 150 plus.
and S7 Edge
was first launched in 2016 with Android 6.0 with Touchwiz. Touchwiz being Samsung’s own customized OS. Currently, it comes with Android 7.0 with Samsung Experience. Android 7.0 was released on Samsung S7
and S7 Edge
in January 2017. Samsung Experience is Samsung’s own customization to the Android 7.0 version. Lineage OS 14.1 has already been successfully installed on Samsung S7 and S7 Edge
LineageOS 15.0 will be better than the LineageOS 14.1 contributing to this factor is better notifications management, multi-window functionality, better security and so on that will be incorporated in Android 8.0.
LineageOS would be available after the Android Open Source version is released. Which means you should be able to get Lineage OS 15 which is also an open source software by late 2017 or early 2018.
