Samsung Galaxy J5 (2016) on track to receive Android 7.0 Nougat update
The Galaxy J5 (2016) could be among the next Samsung smartphones to receive the Android 7.0 Nougat update. The South Korean company is trying to update as many of its mid-range handsets as possible, but it might not keep up once it starts working on bringing Android Oreo to its flagships.
In any case, Samsung Galaxy J5 (2016) has been recently listed at Wi-Fi Alliance, but this time with Android 7.0 Nougat on board. Featuring model number SM-J510N, the Galaxy J5 (2016) could get the new update by the end of the year.
The Galaxy J5 (2016) was launched last year in April before Google introduced Android Nougat. And so, the smartphone continues to ship with Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow on board.
Hardware-wise, the phone is decent enough to run Nougat, as Samsung included a 1.2GHz quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 410 processor, 2GB RAM, and 16GB expandable storage. Other highlights of the phone include a 13-megapixel rear-facing camera, a 5-megapixel selfie snapper, and a 5-inch HD (720p) display.
