Samsung has a wide range of smartphones and mobile devices, but the most popular ones are the Galaxy S and the Galaxy Note series. The South Korean company also released the Galaxy A, which is a range of devices aiming at the mid-range market, while the Galaxy J series are devices made for the users who want to purchase a budget handset.
It is good to know that Samsung doesn’t have a good reputation when it comes to updates for its handsets. However, it seems that the company has decided to get involved more and it is releasing updates for its devices more ever since it has released the Samsung Galaxy S6.
According to SamMobile, the Samsung Galaxy A 2016 devices will receive the Android 7.0 Nougat update. It seems that the first generation of Galaxy A smartphone is the only non-flagship lineup that has been released by Samsung, which receives two major Android updates. The company is now hoping to continue its track record with its 2016 series.
Unfortunately, we don’t have an official date when Samsung will release the Android 7.0 Nougat update, but it will most likely take some time for the company until it will release it for a good amount of its devices. According to some reports, this new update will start sometime in the Q2 of 2017.
As many of you already know, the Galaxy A lineup consists of six devices, which are the Galaxy A3, Galaxy A5, Galaxy A7, Galaxy A8, Galaxy A9 and Galaxy A9 Pro. Keep in mind that the Galaxy A8 and Galaxy A9 Pro have been released with the Android 6.0 Marshmallow, while the rest of them were running on Android 5.0 Lollipop out-of-the-box.
Samsung will most likely come with an official announcement regarding the Android 7.0 Nougat update for the mentioned devices sometime in the near future.
