It was reported recently that Samsung might soon release the much-awaited Android 7.0 Nougat update for the Galaxy A5 (2017) and the Galaxy A7 (2017). Both premium mid-range smartphones were released earlier this year. Samsung is yet to confirm when it will start rolling out said update for these handsets but now there’s mounting circumstantial evidence to suggest that the release is not that far off.
The Galaxy A7 (2017) running Android 7.0 Nougat has been certified by the Wi-Fi Alliance. The approval from the Wi-Fi standards body is often taken as an indication of an impending release.
This latest development suggests that it may not be long before Samsung starts rolling out the Nougat update for the Galaxy A7 (2017). It’s going to take quite a bit of time to become available for all users, though, as availability varies by carrier and region.
Those who own unlocked versions of the Galaxy A7 (2017) will undoubtedly be among the first to get a taste of Nougat on their handsets. That’s one of the benefits of purchasing an unlocked and off-contract device.
Samsung recently launched a variant of the Galaxy A7 (2017) in China with Bixby onboard. It remains to be seen if the company is going to release Bixby for this handset in other markets across the globe as well with the Nougat update.
