Galaxy A3 (2016) Nougat update released

It appears that Samsung is now rolling out the much-awaited Android 7.0 Nougat update to the cheapest model in its Galaxy A series. The company has reportedly started rolling out Android 7.0 Nougat for the Galaxy A3 (2016) in Europe.

Not like this wasn’t expected. We saw evidence of the Nougat update being developed for the Galaxy A3 (2016) just a few weeks ago which suggested that it may not be long before this update is finally released for the handset.

The first reports of this handset receiving said update came in from Hungary so it’s quite likely that this update will soon be released in other markets across Europe. Firmware version A310FXXU3CQE6 is now being rolled out for this handset in Hungary.

Since this is an over-the-air firmware update, it’s obviously going to take some time before the update is available for all users. It’s unclear at this point in time how long it will take for the update to be released in additional markets.

The firmware update weighs in at just under 1GB and brings all of the features that you have come to expect from the Nougat update, including but not limited to the Multi-Window mode, improved Doze mode and notifications shade, user interface tweaks and more.

The A 2016 series gets nougat before A 2017 series because the 2017 series have already grace ui and lots of nougat features, so 2016 series have more reasons to upgrade sooner

@ENESCUNGU Like A 2015 series.They needed more android marshmallow features but they only took icons,and somethings which google released basic things for Android 6.0.1
I think you are Turkish.And I write as Turkish after that.
Türksün sanırım ama yine de bilmiyorum.Samsung’un politikası çok saçma.Madem 2016 serisi 2017 den önce alıyor geçen sene neden 2015 serisi sonradan aldı.Tamam belki 2017 serisi Nougat özelliklerini taşıyor ama bir kısmını taşıyor.Ayrıca A 2015 serisi Android Marshmallow da hiç yenilik yapmadılar.Eski tip A 2016 serisinin Android 5.0 da kullandığı ikonları verdiler ve arayüz konusunda neredeyse hiçbir değişiklik yoktu ama A 2016 serisi S8 arayüzünü kullanıyor.Bundan önce A 2015 serisi kullanmıyordum ama bu konudaki haksızlıklar göz arda edilemez.

Why u all 2017 A series buyers wants update in 5-6 months after launching ?.Other models have also done good buiseness for them.They are lined in for almost 1 to 1.5 years for the update.They will get first then u get it.Other manufacturers does not provide updates to its midrangers.If u want quick updates buy nexus series.

@ROHIT10081008 Do you remember A 2016 series users got Android 6.0.1 update last year?And A 2016 series got this update before A 2015 series.And this year should be like last year.A 2016 series users have to get this update after A 2017 series users.

That’s because the A 2017 series already has most of the things from Nougat baked into the OS, including the AOD, the Blue light filter and even enhanced notifications.
