Google is about to release the next major Android platform update and there are still many devices out there that have yet to be updated to Android 7.0 Nougat. Samsung’s Galaxy J5 (2016) happens to be one of those devices. The company might finally be preparing the Nougat update for this handset.

The Galaxy J5 (2016) has been spotted at the Wi-Fi Alliance where it was running Android 7.0 Nougat. The handset running the latest version of Android has now been certified by the agency.

These certifications are normally viewed as a positive indication that the update in question is due to be released in the near future. That’s how it has always been in the past so there’s good reason to believe that Samsung might release the Nougat update for the Galaxy J5 (2016) in the near future.

Still, Samsung is yet to confirm when it’s going to release this update for the Galaxy J5 (2016). Those who own the handset would undoubtedly want the company to come out with it as soon as possible.

Google is due to launch Android O in the very near future. The next major platform update is reportedly going to be called Android “Oreo,” Google is likely to confirm the official moniker by tomorrow.
