Having released the Android 7.0 Nougat update for some of its high-end models, Samsung is now turning its attention to its recent premium mid-range smartphones. Just yesterday, it started rolling out the Nougat update for the Galaxy A7 (2017). Earlier today, Samsung released the first firmware update for the Galaxy A5 (2017) that brings Android 7.0 Nougat.
Samsung’s new Galaxy A (2017) series was released back in January this year. Even though it was released a few months after Nougat arrived, Samsung chose to launch it with Marshmallow instead probably because it wanted the Galaxy S8 to be its first Nougat-powered smartphone.
The company has finally turned its attention to the Galaxy A (2017) series and is now sending out the latest iteration of Android for it. The first Nougat firmware update for the Galaxy A5 (2017) has been released in Russia.
Samsung has rolled out firmware version number A520FXXU2BQH4 for the Galaxy A5 (2017) in Russia today. It weighs in at over 1GB, unsurprisingly, as it’s a major platform update. It also includes the latest August security patch from Samsung and Google.
This goes to show that the company has got the ball rolling on the Nougat update for this particular handset. It’s obviously going to take a lot of time before this update is released for all Galaxy A5 (2017) users across the globe, but at least now they know that it’s only a matter of time before the update arrives.
