The Android Nougat 7.0 in beta form for the Galaxy S7 and S7 edge, has gotten many users excited and with good reason as it comes with so many really cool features and the like. 

There's just one teensy problem for those who might want to manually flash one of the leaked ROMs.

Only Nougat's first beta build — build ZPK1 — has made its way out into the wild. That's the build with the light-blue (as opposed to white) quick settings, and a crashy Facebook app. None of the subsequent three builds — including the most recent ZPL3 — have leaked. So if you're flashing any of the leaked GS7 or GS7 edge builds via the ODIN utility, you're getting an older version.
If you don't see this as a problem, think again as in order to receive over-the-air beta updates, you need to be a member of Samsung's Galaxy Beta program. If you're not then you're going to stay on the first beta, which means manually updating to the final Nougat build once it's available, or flashing the latest Marshmallow firmware for your phone to downgrade.
The first beta still works relatively well — Facebook crashes notwithstanding — and gives you a decent preview of many of the features we're expecting to see in the final GS7 Nougat update.

Owners if the Galaxy S7 or S7 edge are set to be the first to be able to give their android device an Android Nougat refresh. 
This is due to Samsung's Galaxy Beta Program which is now available for S7 users, but only in the US, the UK and the company's home country of Korea, though it will soon launch in China, as well.

To do this, users will first have to apply for the privilege to be one of the first by making a Samsung account and then downloading the Galaxy Beta Program or the Samsung Members app. Since the Korean conglomerate introduced the program for Android Marshmallow last year, users might already have either app. In case you do get early access to Nougat, you'll obviously be able to preview Samsung's updated user interface and provide feedback on anything you think needs fixing.
If you're one of the lucky people who got a limited edition S7 edge Olympic Games or an S7 edge Injustice Edition, then you really wouldn't be that lucky as this means you can't participate in the beta. 
Moreso users are only eligible in the UK if they have an unlocked device. In the US, on the other hand, users will have to be Sprint, T-Mobile or a Verizon subscribers. 

First off, i'm a huge Batman fan. 
So when i heard that Samsung was going to be doing a custom made Galaxy S7 phone with the Dark Knight, i squealed like a girl.
At the moment though i'm just downright envious, why? Well this super cool Batman Injustice Edition of the Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge is arriving South Korea come June 13. 
I'm chuffed for South Korean Batman fans, while i'm just sad for me. This jet-black Samsung device comes emblazoned with a golden batwing emblem so iconic to your favorite non-super-powered superhero.
Now before you jump out the window in excitement, it would be wise to advise you-- this will cost you a pretty penny. The limited edition Injustice Edition of the Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge has a price tag of 1.199 million won, which clocks in at just around $1,035.
Did i hear you whistle? I did too.
On the other hand though, Only 1,000 will be sold period, but the first 30 who show up will be getting an extremely limited Batman Injustice figure as icing on the cake. 
Also coming with the package is a gold-colored Batarang, a coupon for VR content, a Batman-black Samsung Gear VR headset, and a back cover touting the Batman symbol.
So you can be certain that there won't be many people owning stuff like this around you.
So if you're cool with all the inherent conditions and you can pull it off, then you may just be getting yourself the coolest phone ever.
