To get a better picture of what Android Nougat is bringing to the table, let’s take a quick look at some of the notable features it comes with.

First off, there’s the Galaxy Note 7 feature Secure Folder, which takes advantage of Samsung’s Knox, and what it does is it allows users to store private notes, pictures, contacts, documents, and whatnot with a password or bio-metric security.
