Galaxy A (2017) Nougat update enters testing

It has only been a couple of months since Samsung came out with the Galaxy A (2017) series and even though the refreshed series was launched after Android 7.0 Nougat came out, they came with Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow out of the box. Now that Samsung has released Android 7.0 Nougat for devices like the Galaxy S7, Galaxy Note 5 and Galaxy S6 Edge+ it can focus its attention on mid-range handsets like the new A series.

A model of the Galaxy A7 (2017) has appeared on a popular benchmarking website and the listing reveals that it was running Android 7.0 Nougat. We usually see such listings pop up whenever a major software update is in the pipeline for a supported device.

Even though the listing specifically mentions the Galaxy A7 (2017), it can reasonably be assumed that Samsung is also testing the Android 7.0 Nougat update for the Galaxy A3 (2017) and the Galaxy A5 (2017) as well.

Samsung hasn’t confirmed as yet when the Galaxy A (2017) series is going to receive its Nougat update but it might take a couple of months before that happens.

S6 edge nougat update ????????? Europa wachten samsunggggggggg

19 days 3 hours ago

you’re better off upgrading at this point if Software Updates are your priority, with the release of the S8 its very unlikely the S6s will get much further support. Though the S6 edge+ has started receiving Nougat, my carrier unlocked version still hasn’t and I do not expect it now, not before the release of the S8s

As far as I recall, they stated that none of their phones before the S7 will get aod because of small battery capacity and lack of optimization (remember that their whole 2015 series of phones was badly optimized though they have received some updates to fix some but not all problems because they have like a million of other phones to take care of as well).
Also they should receive the new UI because the S6 did. Actually I’m 100% they will because the policy of Nougat is that all phones who have it must have the same notification bar concept. I doubt Samsung will skip on other things (icons, apps’ UI), so definitely they will receive the same UI.
