Android 7.0 Nougat confirmed for the Galaxy A5 original

23 December, 2016 Samsung Updates

In an age and time when even premium flagship phones lose the eligibility for technical support after two years and lesser phones are forgotten much sooner, we have excellent news for you today. We knew that the Galaxy A (2016)-series was going to get the Nougat update from Samsung in 2017, but as it turns out, even the original Galaxy A-series isn't out of Samsung's support yet; at least not the A5 anyway.

In an official confirmation, Australian carrier Optus has stated that a Nougat build for the original Galaxy A5 is at its testing stage. They further elaborated that an OTA update which will deliver the final build to the A5 original should roll out by the end of next month. Considering that the Galaxy A5 has already received two major upgrades in the form of Lollipop and Marshmallow, the fact that it will receive Nougat is something that almost sounds too good to be true. If you are wondering if the same will be applicable to the Galaxy A5 handsets in other regions as well, I guess that's something which we will just have to wait and find out.
