Samsung Galaxy A5 (2017) to get Android 7.0 update soon?


Last updated: July 14th, 2017 at 11:30 UTC+02:00

Samsung had unveiled the Galaxy A5 (2017) earlier this year running Android 6.0.1 (Marshmallow), but it looks like the phone will soon get the Android 7.0 update. The company received Wi-Fi certification for the Galaxy A5 (2017) running Android 7.0 earlier today, which means that the South Korean smartphone giant is close to releasing the Android 7.0 (Nougat) update to the smartphone.

The Galaxy A5 (2017) features a 5.2-inch 1080p Super AMOLED display with support for Always On Display. It comes with a 16-megapixel primary camera and a 16-megapixel secondary camera, both with f/1.9 aperture and 1080p video recording. The phone comes equipped with an octa-core Exynos 7880 processor, 3GB RAM, 32GB internal storage, a microSD card slot, and a 3,000mAh battery.

Samsung has already released the Android 7.0 update for various Galaxy S and Galaxy Note series of smartphones, and now it’s time for the Galaxy A series smartphones to get the Nougat update.
