Samsung Galaxy A (2016) to get Android Nougat

Samsung Galaxy A9 (2016) Android phablet gets Nougat update
Samsung Galaxy A9 (2016)
Although it has been confirmed that high-end devices like the Galaxy S7/S7 Edge lineup or the Note 5 phablet will soon get Nougat, it is surprising to see that Samsung has added the Galaxy A family to the list of handsets that would get the new firmware.

Although not a flagship lineup, the Galaxy A family seems to get a lot of love from Samsung when it comes to updates. The original Galaxy A was the only non-flagship series by Samsung to get two major Android updates, and now it looks like the Galaxy A (2016) devices will get the same treatment.

According to an exclusive report by SamMobile, Samsung confirmed that Android 7.0 Nougat is heading for the Galaxy A (2016) lineup. Unfortunately, the release date of this update is still unknown. The same source also mentioned that "with quite a few flagship devices to be taken care of, Samsung is likely going to take its time with rolling out the update to its mid-range and budget devices."

The Galaxy A (2016) is a very large family of devices, starting with the affordable Galaxy A3 and Galaxy A5, and going all the way up to the large-screen Galaxy A9 and Galaxy A9 Pro. These being said, it would not be surprising to see the update coming out way in the second quarter of 2017.

In my early school days, I hated writing and having to make up stories. A decade later, I started to enjoy it. Since then, I published a few offline articles and then I moved to the online space, where I contributed to major websites that are still present online as of 2021 such as Softpedia, Brothersoft, Download3000, but I also wrote for multiple blogs that have disappeared over the years. I've been riding with the Notebookcheck crew since 2013 and I am not planning to leave it anytime soon. In love with good mechanical keyboards, vinyl and tape sound, but also smartphones, streaming services, and digital art.
