Both models are FCC Certified for ANT+, but ANT+ is apparently not supported yet.  What is the schedule for firmware upgrade to enable ANT+?

Samsung is unable to speculate on the release of any updates or features, I apologize for the inconveniences caused.

The current version Samsung Galaxy S7 FE WIFI 64GB has no build in hardware to support ant+ unfortunately. My old Galaxy S2 works find without anything. Newer models should be always downwards compatible otherwise poeple get angry about the new tablet which can less than the old one. 
Following workaround works for most cycling devices on the market.
Install "ant tester" and "ant plugin service".

Buy following components:
- ANT+ Dongle Adapter USB Receiver which supports most cycling software around 18 sFr. (amazon.de)
- Rock - OTG USB to USB-C Adapter  18sFr. (apfelkiste.ch)
Connect those 2 items into your USB-C. Don't forget to power off/on. The cycling software might not recognize new hardware.
