[Firmware now online] Samsung releases Android 7.0 Nougat for the Galaxy Note 5 in India

It has only been a couple of weeks since Samsung released the Android 7.0 Nougat update for the Galaxy Note 5 in Turkey. We knew that it was only a matter of time before the update made its way to other markets across the globe. Last week, Nougat for the Galaxy Note 5 was released in 8 additional markets. Today, Samsung is rolling it out in India.

The Galaxy Note 5 (SM-G920G) is now receiving the Android 7.0 Nougat update in India. Firmware version N920GDDU3CQC7 is being rolled out for the handset. Since it’s a major update, it weighs in at just over 1GB.

The update bumps up the core Android OS to version 7.0 and brings all of the features that are part and parcel of Nougat. It brings the improved user interface as well as features like Multi-Window, Samsung Pass, improved Notifications experience, and more. Check out our video detailing Nougat features for the Galaxy Note 5 down below.

Samsung has started rolling out Android 7.0 Nougat for the Galaxy Note 5 in India starting today. It may take a while for the update to go live across all regions of the country.

Update: The Nougat firmware for the Note 5 in India (and a couple of other countries with the same model) are now available from our firmware section.


Thanks, Yogesh!

28 days 6 hours ago

This specific update is for the single SIM variant only, so, yeah, let’s hope the Duos variant gets updated soon too.

I live in Thailand, my Note 5 received nougat on Friday 24th, since then I have had major sounds problems. Most notification sounds, s pen, undock, alarm and ringtones and others disappear. This happens daily. A restart fixes the issue.

Factory reset, cleared cache second one at the Samsung customer service centre, but it happened again.

Has anyone else had this issue?
Any help will be great.

What about Nougat update for S6 Edge Plus in India? It was a newer model than Note 5 and yet to receive an update. Poor Poor.

28 days 5 hours ago

Bruh, the main flagship of the year gets updated first (S7/Edge in this case), then the main flagships of the previous year (S6/edge in this case) and then the Note along with any other variants of the main flagship(s), such as a ‘plus’ or Active variant.
Samsung followed that sequence in other major regions but for whatever reason screwed it up in India by delaying S6/edge’s update and pushing it to Note 5 (and now to edge+) first. Note 5 & edge+ users should be happy that they got the update before S6/edge did

29 days 1 hour ago

It should start soon, S6 edge+ and Note 5 usually get updates around the same time in India, shouldn’t be different with Nougat.

What about Galaxy S6?

Vignesh Shanmugam
29 days 4 hours ago

it is an older device compared to note 5 so wait

28 days 4 hours ago

Technically, S6/edge should get updated first, followed by Note 5 & edge+. And that IS how they did it in other regions. The S line-up gets updated before the Note line-up every year. But for some reason unfathomable, they messed up the order for India

In All the other regions Galaxy S6 Got Nougat update first!

Yet no update for the S6 G920I variant even though the 7.0 update came out for S6 (G920F) before it did for Note 5. RIP

My S7 edge still on marshmallow and December security patch. Portugal MEO.

Verry strange that Galaxy S7 Edge SM G935F LUX last update 6.01 have received in december 2016 and that’s it ! No nougat for us anymore because it looks that Samsung stops the update services for some consumers
