Samsung starts rolling out Android 7.0 Nougat for the Galaxy S5 Neo

The Galaxy S5 Neo is a relatively old smartphone software-wise. The device was launched exactly 2 years ago with Android 5.1.1 Lollipop on board but received an Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow last year.

Fast forward a bit more than a year and it looks like Samsung has suddenly decided to breathe new life into the old Galaxy S5 Neo by offering users another major OS update, Android 7.0 Nougat.

Although Android 7.0 Nougat for the Galaxy S5 Neo is only being pushed out in Canada, there's no doubt that Samsung will continue the roll-out to other countries in the near future. It's important to note that the update comes OTA (over the air) with firmware version number G903WVLU1CQH4.

Samsung Galaxy S5 Neo has almost reached its EOL (end of life) status, so it's likely that Android 7.0 Nougat will be the last major update hitting the smartphone.

If you're a proud owner of the Galaxy S5 Neo, you'll have to switch to a newer device if you want to reap the benefits of a more recent Android version like the newly launched Android 8.0 Oreo.

Interesting. This reminds me of the Galaxy S3 Neo, which received the Android 4.4.4 KitKat while the original Galaxy S3 remained in the Android 4.3 Jelly Bean.

S5 Neo was okay, not bad if you aren't in the market for a new phone.
