The latest Android Nougat operating system is highly anticipated by owners of Samsung devices, especially the owners of Galaxy S7 and Galaxy S7 Edge Plus since the South Korean tech giant confirmed that their flagship devices will receive the update during mid December 2016. According to recent reports it seems like Samsung won’t release the updates only to their flagship devices and the Galaxy A Series 2016 is next in line.

The company’s flagship devices Galaxy S7 and Galaxy S7 Edge Plus already run on the beta version of Android Nougat, but once the beta testing ends during December, Samsung will officially roll out the new operating system.



Recent reports point out that the company’s Galaxy A series will also receive the update, the only problem is that no one knows when exactly. Tech experts are speculating that the new Nougat operating system will be rolled out during the second quarter of 2017. This might seem kind of late, but taking in consideration that the developers need to create another Android 7.0 Nougat beta build, it might take them some time.

Samsung is not the type of company that rushes updates and releases, especially since the Galaxy Note 7 disaster. Rolling out a major software update without going through all the testing processes might result in a bad operating system and bad customer experience. This is certainly something which Samsung is trying to avoid mostly because the company is still trying to clear its name after what happened with the Galaxy Note 7.

All the waiting will be worth in the end, since Galaxy A owners will receive a bug free operating system that performs the way it should.

Owners of Galaxy A9 Pro, Galaxy A9, Galaxy A8, Galaxy A7, Galaxy A5 and Galaxy 3 should keep their eyes peeled for the release of the beta version of Nougat if they want to get their hands on the new OS ahead of time.
