Android 7.0 Nougat coming soon to the Samsung Galaxy J5 Prime

The Marshmallow-based Samsung Galaxy J5 Prime was launched about a year ago in India, but the smartphone slowly made its way to EMEA territories and even Australia. It's also known as Samsung Galaxy On5 (2016) and features many different model numbers depending on region.

The good news is all Galaxy J5 Prime models will be getting the highly-anticipated Android 7.0 Nougat update in the coming weeks. The smartphone has been recently spotted at Wi-Fi Alliance, which shouldn't be unusual unless it would not run Android 7.0 Nougat.

Multiple versions of the Galaxy J5 Prime have been certified at Wi-Fi Alliance, so if you own one of the following models, then you should expect Android 7.0 Nougat to hit your phone soon: SM-G570Y/DS, SM-G570M/DS, SM-G570 F/DS, SM-G570f/DD, SM-G570Y, and SM-G570M.

In the meantime, Google released Android 8.0 Oreo for Nexus and Pixel devices, but other brands like BlackBerry, HTC, Huawei, Motorola, LG and Sony are expected to offer the update to some of its smartphones by the end of the year.
