[Update: Galaxy A7 (2016), too] Android 7.0 Nougat hits the Galaxy A5 (2016) in India

The Galaxy A5 (2016) is the first non-flagship Galaxy phone to receive Nougat; the rollout started with Russia, and it has now expanded to the Indian market. It could be available in other markets already, so if you have received the update on your A5 (2016), do let us know in the comments section.

With Samsung aiming for consistency in software across its range of devices, the Nougat update for the A series devices brings the new user interface that runs on the Galaxy S7 and Galaxy S7 edge. Performance and battery life should get a boost, and we will be taking a closer look at what the latest version of Android brings to the Galaxy A lineup in the near future. For now, check out the video below that shows Nougat in action on the Galaxy A5 (2016).

If you’re in India, go into the Settings » About Device menu to download Nougat. Don’t see it yet? It can take time for updates to reach everyone, so be sure to keep checking from time to time.

Update: The update is also rolling out for the Galaxy A7 (2016) (as a 970 MB download) in India, as pointed out to us by Navin. We’ve added more screenshots.

I am glad to see Samsung keeps its promise unusually. lol
Could anyone updated A5(6) to Nougat see any improvements in the camera, especially, the front camera? Any new modes added?
I am bit disappointed with the camera performances. The colours are not natural and punchy. It looks washed out. For example, my blue denim looks grey. lol
Can anyone confirm camera improvements?
Or else, I have to wait until Rovo releases Xposed Framework for Nougat.
Thanks.
