At this point, the Android Nougat 7.0 OS is more than a year old, but thanks to the very botched up update system which most Android smartphone users must deal with, users are just glad to hear about the year-old update finally arriving on their smartphone model. While Samsung has most definitely stepped up their game recently by providing updates that are much more timely than they used to be a few years ago, they still take a long time to release major OS upgrades for all their models. Having said all that, we have good news for you if you live in India and you own a Galaxy A7 (2017); the much awaited Android Nougat 7.0 update is now live via OTA.
Firmware version A720FXXU2BQI2 is rolling out to model number SM-A720F throughout the entire Indian subcontinent. It's a huge update of 1376.35MB, so do not forget to plug in your Wi-Fi or it will drain your mobile data in a flash. Some of the other improvements that come with the firmware (aside from the default ones which will come with all Nougat updates) include the following.
· improved notifications
· improved Quick Settings features
· Dual Messenger
· Better multi-window
· Samsung Pass
· Improved Always-on Display
· Faster app installation
