Galaxy A3 (2016) running Nougat surfaces on Geekbench

We’ve known that Samsung’s preparing to start distributing the long-awaited Nougat update for the Galaxy A3 (2016) for a while now, but unfortunately we don’t have an exact release date. It looks like it could arrive on the device soon, though, as a variant has been spotted on the official Geekbench online database for the second time running the latest flavor of Android; indicating that the South Korean company is in the final stages of testing the firmware.

It would be wrong to not mention that benchmark results are relatively easy to falsify as there’s plenty of different applications available that enable you to modify a unit’s model number. That said, we’re pretty confident this is the real deal. As always, we’ll let you know as soon as the update starts rolling out — so be sure to keep your browser pointed to SamMobile (and follow us on Twitter) for the latest details.

This is my test on Geekbench. I’ve flash LineageOS 14.1. Its not official rom 7.1.1.
Galaxy a3 2016 have 8 cores, but in the stock rom only 4 are enable.
For the moment LOS14.1 is in devellopement, we have a major bug (Sim card not detected)
