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.
