Samsung Galaxy A7 (2017) Android phablet gets Nougat update
Samsung Galaxy A7 (2017)
This 5.7-inch premium mid-range handset launched in early 2017 but only had Android Marshmallow on board back then. Now, the Nougat update is finally available for it. The new firmware brings Samsung Pass, Dual Messenger, and improved always-on capabilities.

Although Samsung should have released the Galaxy A7 (2017) with Android Nougat on board, they chose not to do so for unknown reasons. Fortunately, this is a premium mid-range device and so it should receive at least two major Android updates.

According to various user reports coming from Thailand, the new software for the Galaxy A7 (2017) handsets in the country has version number A720FXXU2BQGB/A720FOLB2BQG9/A720FXXU2BQG7 and brings Android Nougat, next to a few new features and improvements that come directly from Samsung. 

The size of this update is 1394.4 MB and, in addition to the usual Nougat changes, its users should get the new Samsung Experience UI, a new Dual Messenger function, the Samsung Pass feature, enhanced setting menu and AOD feature, as well as various fixes, tweaks, and the latest security updates.

The Network mode settings will be reset automatically after applying the update. Also, as usual, various apps that have not been optimized for Nougat might face problems until they are upgraded via Galaxy Apps or Google Play (or removed if no Nougat-compatible version can be found).

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.
