Samsung's latest iteration of the Galaxy A5 handset arrived back in January when it launched loaded with Android 6.0 Marshmallow. Although it did not receive Android 7.0 yet, it looks like the new firmware is ready, as the Nougat-loaded Galaxy A5 (2017) has just received its WiFi certification.

First introduced back in 2014, the Galaxy A5 has now reached a generation that comes with IP68-rated protection from the elements, an octa-core Exynos 7880 processor made by Samsung, 3 GB RAM, 32 GB internal storage, microSD support, 16 MP cameras on both sides, a 5.2-inch display with 1,920X1,080 pixels, as well as a 3,000 mAh battery.

The WiFi certification of the Galaxy A5 (2017) with Android 7.0 Nougat on board is dated July 14, so it would not be a surprise to see it launch by the end of next week. We will get back to it as soon as that happens, so stay tuned.

Although I have been writing about new software and hardware for almost a decade, I consider myself to be old school. I always enjoy listening to music on CD or tape instead of digital files and I will not even get into the touchscreen vs physical keys debate. However, I also enjoy new technology, as I now have the chance to take a look at the future every day. I joined the Notebookcheck crew back in 2013 and I have no plans to leave the ship anytime soon.
