Always-on Display from the Galaxy Note 7 now available for the Galaxy S7 and S7 edge

Galaxy Note 7 - Battery

With Always-on Display upgrading to version 1.4.02 on the Galaxy Apps store, it also brings compatibility for the #GalaxyS7 and the S7 edge. For those unaware, this feature was originally found on the now defunct Galaxy Note 7 flagship. Samsung had planned to bring the feature to the early 2016 flagships, and the day has finally arrived.

The update has been available for a couple of days on the Galaxy Apps store now, so you should be able to find it on your S7 or S7 edge right away. This is one of the ways that Samsung can keep some of its new features alive. While the Galaxy Note 7 might no longer be available for purchase, the fact that you can enjoy one of its features on an older device is welcoming news for the fans.

Samsung mentions that having Always-on Display enabled eats up less than 1% of your battery per hour, which is quite amazing. This is thanks to the AMOLED display panels used by Samsung. Be sure to check out the new feature from Galaxy Apps.
