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!

It’s still not available in Pakistan and might never going to be unfortunately. Because I love my phone and waiting for months for this update
May be that’s why it’s never going to be available for me.

Is Samsung ignoring the Southeast Asian region because we’ve been waiting for about a month already and they’re only focusing on the European region.

Hi, can anyone confirm if the A5 2017 DUOS (SM-A520F / DS) supports VoLTE and VoWiFi and what is the area for this phone? CSC code?

Jordan14447
Jordan14447

We don’t know your CSC code. You need to check it.

muchacho60055
muchacho60055

It is more complicated, the DUOS version is officially not imported into the Czech Republic, so I have my phone originally from Thailand, the Czech seller on the phone allegedly gave the version of ETL for the Czech Republic, but according to Apk Phone INFO Samsung I have a version for UK / Ireland XEU. In any case, VoLTE is not yet in use. 🙁 All Czech VoLTE operators support …

So, the problem is resolved, the seller has loaded me a firmware CZ that supports VoLTE for all Czech operators.

I’m from India and using the German nougat firmware. Here are the few things which I’ve noticed. 1. No VoLTE support 2. Dual Messenger is available 3. Samsung Experience 8.1 and most of its features. 4. The Indian software tweaks like S-Bike Mode, Ultra Data Saving Mode, power management mode etc. are absent (Quite Obvious) 5. Little tweaks in the Camera UI, no social Camera like J siblings. 6. No performance modes like the S series Nougat update. 7. Improved battery backup. 8. If the display is off and we keep finger on home button (without pressing) then phone unlocks.… Read more »
