A few days ago Samsung started releasing the Android 7.0 Nougat OTA update for the Samsung Galaxy S7 SM-G930F and Galaxy S7 edge SM-G935F. This update is not universal and only users on regions where the beta program is available can download and enjoy Nougat on their phones.
Now, thanks to SamMobile, there are two full Android 7.0 Nougat firmware files available for the Samsung Galaxy S7 with model number SM-G930F that you can download and flash on your phone using Odin.
This is a full featured Nougat firmware released by Samsung and it will give Galaxy S7 users the official TouchWiz GraceUX Nougat experience.

Install Galaxy S7 Nougat Firmware
There are two Nougat firmware files based on two different countries: UK (BTU) and the Czech Republic (O2C).
After you have downloaded the firmware on your computer, extract the file. You will see a few files ending with the tar.md5 extenstion.
- On your phone, go to Settings and enable OEM unlock.
- Turn off the phone and go into download mode. Connect your phone to your PC using a USB cable.
- Open Odin on your computer, click on AP and select the extracted file which begins with AP. Do the same thing with other files on the remaining boxes.
- Click on the Start button and wait for the installation process to finish.
At this point, one of the boxes on the Odin software will turn green and the phone will restart. The first boot might take a few minutes as the software needs to be optimized for the already installed applications.
