Android 7.0 Nougat brings features split-screen multitasking, customizable quick settings and new Google keyboard. According to Sammobile, the firmware comes with a new UX as well. Apart from that the update also brings revamped notifications bar with inline reply feature, which will let you reply to text messages without having to open the app. Users will also save battery and consume less memory when the screen is turned off, which further helps saving battery life. Google has also included a Daydream VR mode in Android Nougat. The update also brings in routine bug fixes, stability improvements and speed optimizations.
