Samsung Galaxy A7 gets Android 5.0.2 Lollipop update in Russia

The Galaxy A3 was the first Galaxy A device to be updated to Lollipop, and Samsung is now putting the spotlight on the Galaxy A7. Android 5.0.2 is rolling out to the device over in Russia (Russia was the first market where the update was rolled out for the Galaxy A3 as well), with the build number A700FDXXU1BOE6, with the firmware available via Samsung Kies and through our firmware section. It’s likely to be rolling out over the air as well, though as tradition would have it, the OTA will take a few days (and maybe weeks) to reach all users.

Android 5.0 brings over a host of improvements, including an updated user interface with Material Design touches, faster performance, advanced notifications, re-addition of full SD card access for third-party apps, a do not disturb mode and the option for setting a notification’s priority, and more. Once again, Samsung isn’t offering the new UX from the Galaxy S6 or Galaxy S6 edge, though at this point we’re not expecting any existing device to do so.

As for the Galaxy A5, it shouldn’t be long before it also gets the Lollipop update, though there’s no telling when that will happen. Let us know if you have received the update on your Galaxy A7, and if you haven’t, don’t forget to check manually in the Settings » About device » Software updates menu.

Still no updates in the Philippines, this phone might not be a flagship device but is still expensive to purchase. In terms of specification is capable of running newer version of Android OS , I had been waiting for months now for the Lollipop update, why Samsung? Why?

For Apple phone update means for all the apple iPhone not like Samsung Co.
Samsung treats customers like fools. They should not think that they can monopolies the world.

Galaxy Alpha it was released before the series A and so far only South Korea and France have the Lollipop. And the rest of the world?
O Galaxy Alpha foi lançado primeiro que a série A e até agora só a Coréia do Sul e a França tiveram atualização do Lollipop. E ainda assim apenas uma ou outra variante . E o resto do mundo?
