The Android Nougat brings in a bunch of new features including Always On Display, split-screen multitasking, more customisable quick settings, quick setting toggles, improved Google keyboard, enhanced notifications, and recent applications window, ‘Double Tap’ on the Recent button to switch between the two most recent apps, and ‘Doze on the go’ which will extend battery life. Further more the update brings bug fixes and stability improvements to the smartphones.
As the OTA update is sized around 1.3GB so we suggest you to charge your phone at least 50 percent and 2GB of free space available to run the update smoothly. As is usually the case with OTA roll outs, it may take time for the update to hit your device. So be patient and keep an eye on your notification. Meanwhile you can also manually check for the update by going to Settings ->About Phone -> Software Update.
