[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.



Thanks, ikps_sidhu!

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.

I have updated my a5 2016 few days before. Interface and performance improved. But has some problems too. Sometimes battery can’t be charged fully and it stuck between 80 and 100. I was pretty happy with its battery life on marshmallow, but after nougat superfast battery drain detected. I have just started using it and will come back….

When will android 7.0 hit samsung galaxy a9 pro 2016 ???

10 days 14 hours ago

A5 2016 nougat firmware have much bugs. Recently found

1. Battery doesnt get fully charged ( sometimes when put mobile on charging while device is on the battery charging stucks between 70% to 100% percent).

2. 3×4 keyboard stucks while typing like we had problems in g530h 4.4

The features needs back.
3d, bass and clarity option in soundalive

Smart manager was better than device maintenance. The device maintenance cause much battery consumption.

I hope we won’t get such bugs in turkey nougat update and please add those features back they forced me to downgrade device back to 6.0
