Samsung Galaxy S7 Leak on Dev Page Shows Hints of Android N and Stylus Support

Samsung’s leaks of the Galaxy S7 continue, in more or less official fashion and they’re also leaking other products now. For example, they’ve just confirmed the existence of Android N via the Samsung developer website.


On that same page, the South Korean handset maker recently confirmed the name Galaxy S7 Edge. This site lists a series of features that will be “depreciated in N”, Android N that is. We like to speculate it will be called Android Nutella, which is very likely, given Google’s penchant for sweet treats. S Pen Features like AirButton, SmartClip and WritingBody are mentioned on the same list.


This may lead one to believe that the Galaxy S7 may get S Pen support with Android N, which is something we’ve seen coming ever since that Samsung patent of a case with a holder for stylus appeared. Samsung did manage to remove all proof about the Galaxy S7 from the page, in the meantime. Android N may just bring universal stylus support, not just for Samsung models, like M brought USB Type C and fingerprint scanner support.
