Galaxy J5 (2016), Galaxy Tab A 8.0 and Galaxy Tab A 9.7 spotted running Android 7.1.1 Nougat

Home / News / Galaxy J5 (2016), Galaxy Tab A 8.0 and Galaxy Tab A 9.7 spotted running Android 7.1.1 Nougat

The Galaxy J5 (2016), Galaxy Tab A 8.0 and Galaxy Tab A 9.7 have been spotted on both Geekbench and GFXBench’s online database running Android 7.1.1, which has (almost) led us to believe that Samsung is in the final stages of testing the much-anticipated Nougat update for the devices.

Truth be told, we’re feeling a little bit confused. The Galaxy J7 (2016), the Galaxy J5’s big brother, has already started receiving the Android 7.0 Nougat update, while the Galaxy Tab A 8.0 and Galaxy Tab A 9.7 were recently certified by the Wi-Fi Alliance running the firmware.

Have you noticed the discrepancy? All three units have been spotted running Android 7.1.1 Nougat, yet all signs pointed towards them receiving the slightly older Android 7.0 Nougat upgrade—so we’d recommend taking this information with a considerable hefty pinch of salt.

Regardless, seeing as the Galaxy J5 (2016), Galaxy Tab A 8.0 and Galaxy Tab A 9.7  have passed through the Wi-Fi Alliance and acquired certification to run Nougat, it’s safe to say that they’ll all receive the update in the near future. We just don’t know whether they’ll be treated to Android 7.0 or Android 7.1.1.

Thanks, Cesar H. Estrada!

October 1st and here I am, still waiting for the Nougat update for my J5 2016, but If I receive the 7.1.1 update instead the 7.0 that would be fantastic.

Why is Samsung neglecting the J3 2016. The Grand Prime which had 8gb storage upgraded from kitkat to lollipop so why not j3 2016. Plus 7.0 update is designed to run on devices will less specs

It’s interesting that Galaxy Tab A 9.7 could get Android 7.1.1 and my Galaxy S6 is on Android 7.0. I have to say that i own both,Galaxy S6 and Galaxy Tab A 9.7.
