Samsung Galaxy S5 Neo could be getting Android 7.0 Nougat update soon

Samsung's fans are probably used to seeing their favorite brand launching many derivatives of its flagship smartphones. The Galaxy S5 Neo is a dumbed-down version of the Galaxy S5, which hit the shelves about two years ago.

Initially, the smartphone shipped with Android 5.1.1 Lollipop onboard, but one year after its market release Samsung rolled out an Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow update.

Today, the Galaxy S5 Neo has been spotted at Wi-Fi Alliance, and this time the phone runs Android 7.0 Nougat. The listing also confirms the Canadian version of the Galaxy S5 Neo, which goes by model number Samsung G903W, is likely to be the first to receive the update. The European model, Samsung G903F should get the update as well.

Usually, when a smartphone appears at Wi-Fi Alliance running a newer version of Android, it's a sign that a major update is in the works or ready to be deployed. However, that's not a confirmation that Samsung Galaxy S5 Neo will indeed be updated to Android 7.0 Nougat at some point this year.
