Carrier confirms Samsung Galaxy A5 will get Android 7.0 Nougat update in late January
The smartphone that was launched on the market back in 2014 shipped with Android 4.4 KitKat onboard. In the meantime, Samsung released two major Android OS updates that brought the phone to Marshmallow.
The last major update, Android 6.0 Marshmallow was pushed to all Galaxy A5 devices back in August. However, those who thought that that will be the end of Android OS update for the original Galaxy A5 couldn't be more wrong.
Optus, an important Australian carrier confirmed that Samsung Galaxy A5 will eventually receive another major update in January, Android 7.0 Nougat. According to the network operator, the update is already in testing and it's expected to hit Galaxy A5 devices in late January, 2017.
We so no reason for Samsung not to push Android 7.0 Nougat to all Galaxy A5 units across the globe, even though the update has only been confirmed by one major carrier in Australia.
Maybe there's hope for Samsung Galaxy A3 owners as well, since it packs the same chipset (but less RAM). Unfortunately, Optus didn't say anything about this particular device, and we don't have any additional information for the moment.
