Even though Google had released Android 7.0 late last year, Samsung launched this year's variant of the Galaxy A7 with Android 6.0. However, Samsung has now started rolling out the Android 7.0 update for the Galaxy A7 (2017) in India.
The Nougat-based update for the Galaxy A7 (2017) (SM-A720F) uses firmware version A720FXXU2BQI2 and has a file size of 1376.35MB. Samsung has started rolling it out over OTA, and it should reach most users in the country soon.
Apart from Android 7.0, the update brings a new user experience to the Galaxy A7 (2017). It also comes with improved notifications and Quick Settings features, multi-window, Dual Messenger, Samsung Pass, and improvements to AOD and app installation times.
