Samsung is rolling out an Always On Display (AOD) update for its Galaxy S7 and S7 Edge smartphones, which will bring many Galaxy Note 7 software features to the devices.

XDA developers posted about the change log on its forum. The changes include Notes V1.4.02, increased customization, display music information and AOD support for the S-View cover and keyboard cover.

Clock, calendar and image settings will be set as the digital clock. Samsung has merged the two types of calendars with a newly designed calendar.

The digital/analog and world clocks have been added to the clock app. Image clock will allow any image to be set as AOD while signature clock lets you set your own signature as AOD. AOD will also have information about songs being played by music apps. It will also show on S7’s S-View cover and keyboard cover.

According to the changelog posted by XDA developers, the Always On Display will use 1% of battery per hour.

There are two ways to obtain the update:

  • You can manually find the update in the Galaxy App Store.
  • You can go to Settings>> Display>> About Always ON Display and then tap the Update button.

Samsung’s doomed Galaxy Note 7 handset has been a losing battle and the company has finally ceased production of the handset. The company is trying to entice customers toward its Flagship S7 series, to make for the damage caused by the Note 7 scandal.
