Owners of Samsung’s Galaxy S7 who have already upgraded to Android Nougat are still waiting for the promised Secure Folder app to become available to download officialy. However, its release seems pretty close now because earlier today it was leaked online. Those who tried it said it works, and even lets you add a Quick Toggle for it.
Interestingly, when you first launch the app you are presented with a short tutorial showing you how to use it. In this tutorial, Samsung uses the outline of a phone that very much resembles all the leaks we’ve seen so far about the Galaxy S8. Take a look for yourself:
This is clearly not meant to depict any previously released Samsung smartphone, so it looks like the Korean company itself is pretty much confirming the near-bezelless design of its next flagship device, along with its rounded screen corners (something the LG G6 will sport too). Hopefully Samsung won’t wait until the S8’s introduction (rumored for late March) to make the Secure Folder app available for Galaxy S7 owners running Nougat.
Secure Folder debuted on the now-recalled Galaxy Note7. It lets you create a protected folder in which you can place media files, documents, contacts, and other personal content, and secure all of this with your fingerprint.
