Samsung Galaxy A3 (2017) could receive the Android 7.0 Nougat update soon

Samsung is definitely on fire when it comes to Android Nougat updates. The South Korean company has a long list of devices that has to upgrade to Nougat, and a short window to do it before the next version of Android gets released.

The Galaxy A3 (2017) is clearly on the list of smartphones that will eventually get the highly-anticipated Android 7.0 Nougat update, but since Samsung hasn't provided consumers with a timeframe, it's hard to tell when its devices will receive this major software upgrade.

The good news is Samsung is already testing Nougat for the Galaxy A3 (2017), as one of the listings at GFXBench mentions the smartphone runs Android 7.0 Nougat.

Obviously, this is just a heads up for those who own the Samsung Galaxy A3 (2017) and raise a little bit of hype. It will still take some time until the phone will receive the update, but at least we know it will eventually get it.

Even though Samsung Galaxy A3 (2017) made its debut on the market back in January, the phone ships with Android 6.0 Marshmallow operating system on board. Hopefully, that will be soon corrected by Samsung. In the meantime, don't forget to read our Samsung Galaxy A3 (2017) review for more details on the smartphone.
