Many are waiting for 7.0 Nougat software updates on their Galaxy S7 and S6 smartphones, but we’ve come across a video showing how 7.1.1 Nougat looks and feels on the first phone in Samsung’s Galaxy S series.
YouTuber XTvideos posted a video showing how Android 7.1.1 Nougat performs on the 7-year old Galaxy S smartphone, announced in March 2010 and released a couple of months later in June. The video shows the first boot of Galaxy S1 i9000 running the latest version of Android.
Obviously, this is an unofficial CM version of Nougat, as nobody expects Samsung to release an update for devices so old. The smartphone runs a bit slow, it takes some time to load the settings menu, and it is running a clean OS, no apps were flashed.
The user installed CyanogenMod 14.1 on the Galaxy S (GT-I9000), and since it’s an unofficial version, the phone is a bit slow in certain areas. The phone also appears to have the December security patch, which was the latest when the video was uploaded.
The video shows that 7.1.1 Nougat contains most of the features that you would expect, like a revamped notification area and even quick reply. The phone can open all settings menus and provides the user with access to developer options, without crashing, freezing or shutting down.
Samsung’s Galaxy S1 (GT-I9000) had a 4-inch AMOLED display with 480 x 800 pixel resolution and Corning Gorilla Glass coating on top. It ran Android 2.1 Eclair out of the box and later received an update to 2.3 Gingerbread. These two versions haven’t been included in Android Distribution reports for quite some time now, meaning that their market share is well below 0.1%.
Moving on, the Galaxy S1 came with 512MB of RAM, 8GB or 16GB of internal storage which could be expanded to 32GB with a microSD card, and ran a Hummingbird chipset or Exynos 3110 with a 1.0GHz Cortex-A8 processor, coupled with PowerVR SGX540 graphics processing units.
Rear camera capacity reached 5MP with autofocus, while the secondary camera was VGA. The phone drew power from a removable 1,500mAh battery.
