BREAKING: Galaxy A5 (2017) Oreo update seems to be rolling out

Home / News / BREAKING: Galaxy A5 (2017) Oreo update seems to be rolling out

The Galaxy A5 (2017) was spotted with Android 8.0 Oreo on the Wi-Fi Alliance website a couple of weeks ago, and it looks like Samsung Russia has already started rolling out the Oreo update to the device. We’ve received tips from two of our readers telling us that they have received the Oreo update on their A5 (2017), with screenshots confirming the rollout has indeed begun. The update comes as a 1.2GB (1256.44 MB to be precise) download, and we’ll be updating this post as soon as we get our hands on screenshots from an A5 (2017) after the update has been installed.

Galaxy A5 (2017) Oreo update rolling out

It’s unclear just how many new features and changes Oreo will bring to the Galaxy A series and other non-flagship phones. The changelog for the update seems to be the same as the one for the Galaxy S8 and Galaxy Note 8, but there’s likely to be some disparity between the flagship phones and other devices in Samsung’s galaxy (no pun intended). Of course, we will have to go through Oreo on an A5 (2017) to see the extent of that disparity, and in the meantime, you can check out everything that’s new with Android 8.0 Oreo in our exhaustive coverage and in the official Samsung Experience 9.0 infographic.

To see if Oreo is available on your Galaxy A5 (2017), open the phone’s Settings app, tap Software update, then tap Download updates manually. If you do get the update, let us know by leaving a comment. Don’t forget to mention your country, so we can get an idea of whether it’s just Russia that’s getting the update or if it’s also available elsewhere. If possible, also send us screenshots through email to [email protected] and [email protected]

Update: We have added a couple of screenshots from Oreo running on the phone. We’ll be adding more as and when we get them.

Thanks, Oves Shaikh and Razvan Corsei!

Sweden received the Oreo update, May 10th. So far very satisfied with it. Better battery life for me. I have an unbranded A5 2017.

A samsungnak csak a pénzünk kell, utána szarik az emberekre! Oreo egy év után, biztonsági javítások 2-3 hónap csúszással! Ezek után hálásak kellene legyünk? 👎
