More troubling, though, seems to be news coming out of the company's value sub-brand Honor in recent days.

Samsung has finally issued an update to the unlocked variants of the Galaxy S7 and S7 edge sold in the US (the G930U and G935U, respectively), but it's going to come as bittersweet news for owners: Nougat is not in tow.
