Galaxy A5 (2017) Nougat update is now rolling out

Following the Galaxy A7 (2017), the Nougat update has now reached the Galaxy A5 (2017), with the update kicking off in the Russian market. Nougat is now rolling out to all three 2017 Galaxy A models, although it will still be a while before it hits all markets where the devices were officially launched.

The Galaxy A5 (2017) Nougat update brings almost the same set of features and improvements as the update for the A3 and A7, although the new Dual Messenger feature isn’t listed in the changelog for the A5, suggesting it could be market dependent (or it’s there but not mentioned, unless Samsung has forgotten to implement it on every device). You’ll see a newer user interface after the update, a slightly different version of Multi Window mode (which now takes after the stock Android implementation), enhanced notifications, Samsung Pass, and improved Always On Display functionality.

To see if the Nougat update is available for you, go into the settings menu, followed by Software update, then hit the Download updates manually button. Being a major OS upgrade, the download size will cross 1GB, so it’s recommended to use a Wi-Fi connection for a quicker download and for saving on data costs. If your Galaxy A5 has received the update, do let us know in the comments section!

Some people seem to forget that Sammobile doesn’t work for Samsung. It’s just a website that is about Samsung products so stop asking the ETA for an update. The world doesn’t revolve around you. Besides since when Samsung tells about an update for a specific region ? We only know when the update begins to be rolled out then we just have to wait

People in curiosity use to ask questions. Even that might be silly for you, but when it comes to a public forum people want to get some piece of information and they doesnt want this kind of reply. If you thought world revolving over your greedy head. Keep it within yourselves.

Lo compré con Claro pero le quité el software en Samsung Colombia y quedó como si hubiera sido comprado directamente a ellos (a Samsung Colombia)

Como lo hiciste? Odio el hecho de estar atrapado hasta que a Claro se le de la gana de actualizarlo.

Te seré completamente honesto. Hasta hace por ahí un año, comprabas un celular en Claro y te ibas de inmediato a cualquier centro de Samsung Colombia. Vivo en Medellín y aquí hay dos de esos centros. De manera gratuita, ellos en Samsung Colombia, te quitaban el software de fábrica de Claro y te lo dejaban cero kilómetros y recibiendo además todas las actualizaciones de primero. El logo y los predeterminados tan fastidiosos de Claro, desaparecen. Compré este A5-7 en marzo y oh sorpresa de la vida, que en Samsung ya no hacen eso por orden de Claro Colombia. Sin embargo,… Read more »

Lo que sí implica es un formateo completo del equipo para que lo tengas en cuenta.

Ya fui, se negaron completamente y me dijeron que eso no se podía hacer, y que Samsung nunca hace eso. Hahahaha me temo que tendré que esperar otros meses hasta que llegue la actualización

Ah, ¡qué vaina! Sólo puedo decir que mintieron con descaro. Sí lo pueden hacer sin problema alguno. Que Claro se los haya prohibido expresamente es otro cuento. No entiendo qué carajos gana Claro con eso. Las apps que ellos le meten al celular, y que no se pueden eliminar si no es formateando (y hasta dudo que formateando uno mismo), es un verdadero dolor de muela: no sirven para nada y encima, ocupan recursos del teléfono.
La verdad, lo siento mucho. Si te pasaras por Medellín, hasta yo te llevaba a Samsung. Ojalá que te llegue la actualización pronto.
Un saludo.
