Despite Samsung launching both the Samsung Galaxy A5 and A7 earlier this year, both phones were not launched with the latest Android operating system installed, Android 7.0 Nougat. However the good news is that owners of either device probably won’t have to wait much longer for the update to arrive.

According to reports, it seems that testing of the Nougat update on both phones is currently underway, as spotted on the WiFi Alliance website where the phones were listed with Android 7.0 Nougat installed. This suggests that Samsung has gotten the update up and running on the phones, and we guess it’s only a matter of time before they are released to the public.

Unfortunately with Nougat only being released this late in the year, one has to wonder about what this means for the Android 8.0 update which is expected to be released later this year. We’re not sure if either device would qualify for the update since OEMs usually prefer to focus on their flagships, but either way we guess an update to Nougat would do for now.

We’ll be keeping our eyes peeled for more information and will update you guys accordingly whenever the update has been released.
