Here’s a list of all the Galaxy devices that should receive the Nougat update

Firmware

Last updated: January 17th, 2017 at 17:15 UTC+01:00

Now that Samsung’s finally started distributing the long-awaited Nougat update for the Galaxy S7 and Galaxy S7 edge, many owners of the firm’s other handsets have started to question whether their unit will be graced with the latest flavor of Android. To clear up the confusion, we’ve decided to compile a list of all the Galaxy-branded devices that will be bumped up to Android 7.0.

Check it out below:

  • Galaxy A3 (2016 and 2017)
  • Galaxy A5 (2016 and 2017)
  • Galaxy A7 (2016 and 2017)
  • Galaxy A8
  • Galaxy A9/A9 Pro
  • Galaxy S6
  • Galaxy S6 Active
  • Galaxy S6 edge
  • Galaxy S6 edge+
  • Galaxy S7
  • Galaxy S7 edge
  • Galaxy S7 Active
  • Galaxy Note 5
  • Galaxy Tab S2

We also expect the Galaxy J5 (2016) and Galaxy J7 (2016) to receive the Nougat treatment as its predecessors made the jump from Lollipop to Marshmallow in a relatively timely manner, though that’s not confirmed at present. The Galaxy Tab A tablets should be on the list as well, according to our sources. Unfortunately, it’s unknown whether Samsung will provide the upgrade for cheaper devices, like the Galaxy J3, as there may not be enough demand. Only time will tell.

With regards to carrier-branded smartphones, all of the major operators in the United States should roll out the firmware for handsets in the Galaxy A, Galaxy S and Galaxy Note series. However, an exact time frame remains unknown. Some of them might start pushing it out around the same time it starts arriving on international units, while some might take a few extra week — and we can only wait and see what happens.
