Galaxy S5 Neo to receive Android 7.0 Nougat update

In a strange turn of events, the Galaxy S5 Neo has been spotted at the Wi-Fi Alliance running Android 7.0, seemingly confirming rumors claiming that Samsung will distribute the long-awaited Nougat update for the handset, which is now approaching the end of its two-year support window.

Android 7.0 Nougat brings a plethora of new features to the table, including enhanced notifications, improved application permissions, new emoji and refined battery saving tools, as well as an abundance of much-needed bug fixes, stability improvements and speed optimizations.

We’re a little surprised that the Galaxy S5 Neo is being treated to Nougat. Usually, Samsung forgets about spin-off variants shortly after they hit the shelves. But my colleague Asif humorously speculated a plausible reason for rollout: the firm’s taken on too many interns and is looking for ways to keep them busy.

In case you missed its announcement, the Galaxy S5 Neo is a slightly smaller variant of the Galaxy S5. Under the hood, it sports a 5.1-inch Full HD display, a 1.6GHz Exynos 7580 CPU, 2GB of RAM, a 16MP rear-facing camera, a 5MP front-facing shooter and a 2,800mAh removable battery.

There’s no word on when the release is scheduled to start making the rounds.

i wouldn’t be too excited about this until it gets released, the reason being is that samsung always certifies their latest devices with the latest supported android version. for example the Straight talk S5 (SM-S902L) is a Verizon variant of the S5 and it never passed to android lollipop but yet has wifi certification for android Marshmallow as of 03/07/2016. It never got any updates from tracfone pass kitkat. see below links wi-fi.org/content/search-page?keys=SM-S902L
