Samsung's Galaxy A (2016) lineup seems to be getting luckier, as after getting Android 6.0 Marshmallow - it is going to get the taste of Nougat too. A report by SamMobile suggests that Samsung is working on a stable Android 7.0 Nougat update for its Galaxy A (2016) series. Also, the Galaxy A (2017) series might as well run Android 7.0 Nougat out-of-the-box.
Samsung's Galaxy A (2016) is pretty huge as it contains phones such as Galaxy A3, Galaxy A5, Galaxy A7, Galaxy A8, Galaxy A9, and Galaxy A9 Pro. The company has not revealed a set timeline for the update to roll out, but we expect it to be a little bit stretched as Samsung's flagships are still awaiting Nougat update. Belonging to the mid-range segment, the Galaxy A (2016) series of smartphones will ultimately get the update after Samsung is done pushing it to flagships like Galaxy S7.
We think that it would be safe to presume that Galaxy A (2016) might have to wait until the second quarter of 2017 to finally get the update in all regions. Currently, Samsung is also working on Nougat update for the Galaxy S6, Galaxy S6 edge, Galaxy S7, Galaxy S7 edge, Galaxy Note 5, and the Galaxy Tab S2.
It would be interesting to see when will Samsung start rolling out the Nougat update to the Galaxy A series (2016). Stay tuned with us for more news about Samsung's update chart.
