Samsung starts rolling out Nougat to the Galaxy A7 (2017)


Last updated: August 8th, 2017 at 14:29 UTC+02:00

After rolling out Nougat to high-end Galaxy S and Galaxy Note series smartphones, Samsung has started rolling out Android 7.0 to the Galaxy A7 (2017). The higher mid-range smartphone was launched in January, but it came running Android 6.0 out of the box. The new software update with firmware version A720FXXU2BQGB has a file size of 1394.40MB, and is now rolling out to all Galaxy A7 (2017) users in Thailand.

Apart from Android 7.0, the update also brings a newer user interface, improved notifications, quick setting buttons, and multi window experience. Similar to the Galaxy J (2017) smartphones, the Galaxy A7 (2017) will get the Dual Messenger function with this update. The feature lets users to setup two accounts of the same social networking or IM app on the phone. The update also brings improved AOD feature, newer settings menu, and Samsung Pass.

As always, the Nougat update also improves speed and reliability of the phone. Installation of downloaded apps and system upgrades should be faster as well. We expect Samsung to rollout the same update to other countries soon. Have you received this update on your phone? Let us know in the comments section below.
