UPDATE: Thanks to @deathst for the link to his downloads of Nougat for the Malaysian N ROMs. If you want to update your Singapore MM phone to Nougat, following the link and instructions there. Remember to use the HOME_CSC to retain your data and Singapore CSC.

/END UPDATE

So, I bought an international S7 Edge in Singapore last year. Got to say that their updates are incredibly slow.....only recently got the November Security update.

Had an on-line chat with them just now, about when to expect the Nougat update.......April to June!!! Though he did helpfully add "this year".

It really makes me sad that Samsung promise to update phones, then we have to wait maybe half a year to actually get the update.

If I have the Samsung VR (also bought in Singapure), will it still work with the UK firmware?

So if I flash the Malaysian firmware with Odin, it should retain my XSP? Which would mean I don't lose data?
