Galaxy S5 Neo Android 7.0 Nougat update rolling out now

The Galaxy S5 Neo has almost hit its two-year support window for major Android platform updates. Samsung is going to sneak in one last major Android update before the handset is relegated to the long list of devices that are no longer supported.

The Galaxy S5 Neo Android 7.0 Nougat update was spotted on a variant of the handset last month that surfaced at the Wi-Fi Alliance for certification. That’s when it became clear that it was going to receive the Nougat update, even though quite a lot of people thought it wouldn’t get the update.

It’s a bit surprising to see that the Galaxy S5 Neo is getting the Nougat update. Samsung has a habit of forgetting about the many spin-off variants that it releases not too long after they hit the market. I’m sure those who are still holding on to this device won’t complain about getting Nougat.

Samsung has started rolling out the Android 7.0 Nougat update for the Galaxy S5 Neo. Firmware version G903WVLU1CQH4 is rolling out now for the handset in Canada. It’s only a matter of time before it rolls out in other markets.

Galaxy S5 Neo owners will receive an over-the-air notification on their handset when the update goes live in their market. The firmware files are also available for download from our firmware section.

I have the Canadian varient that came from virgin mobile, which has an available update for me, but I can’t seem to be able to through settings. I’m not in Canada right now, would that affect it?

Do you think we will have to go through the benchmark test then wifi alliance? That would be bullshit. Also when did they complete Canada?

It will not be necessary if we look at the wifi certificate there is no G903W in the tests of the dancing, and yes they have finished with Canada on 30.08.2017, because there are not many mobile networks out there in Europe are more, we hope to let go soft- for countries and after being for the branded terminals

Another 3 or even 4 networks in Canada and finishes updating in Canada and we expect to come to Europe if it does not start with “903M”

I saw a test posted for nougat that just referred to 903 without the f or w so I’m assuming they will do both. Hoping anyway. It was a graphics test for Nougat. .

Didn’t the S5 Neo come out a year later than the original S5? it should receive software updates

S5 Neo was launched with 5.1.1 lollipop and marshmallow. Samsung update policy is to update with twi versions and they did. S5 Was launched with kitkat and lollipop was its first upgrade then marshmallow which is its second update. S5 cannot get another version but s5 neo can. Which means s5 neo is better than s5.

Interesting.
This reminds me of the Galaxy S3 Neo, which received the Android 4.4.4 KitKat while the original Galaxy S3 remained in the Android 4.3 Jelly Bean.

I really hope I am wrong…but actually just the Canadian version of S5 neo (G903W) received Nougat wi-fi certification so I do not think the other variants will be updated.
