Android 7.0 Nougat update rolling out to Samsung Galaxy A7 (2017)

It's been about a month since we reported the Samsung Galaxy A7 (2017) might soon get the long-awaited Android 7.0 Nougat update. The smartphone was certified at Wi-Alliance back in July, and the listing revealed it runs a new version of the OS.

Samsung Galaxy A7 (2017) was launched in January with Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow on board, even though Google had released Nougat for several months already.

It looks like Samsung is determined to fix that as Android 7.0 Nougat is now rolling out to Galaxy A7 (2017). SamMobile reports the update is now available in Thailand, but this is just the beginning.

The update weighs in at around 1.4GB and brings a handful of improvements and new features specifically built for Samsung smartphones. For example, new Samsung Pass and AOD features are included, along with a new Dual Messenger function. Also, the settings for the Network mode have been reset.

Keep in mind that some apps that haven't been optimized for Android Nougat might not work after the update, so you'll have to download the latest version via Google Play Store.
