Samsung Galaxy A8 (2016) spotted with Nougat on board
Samsung unveiled the list of devices to get Android Nougat back in January, but there are still quite a few of those included in the list that did not get updated yet. The Galaxy A8 (2016) is one of those devices, but it has been spotted on GFXBench with Android 7.0 on board, so the arrival of the new firmware is imminent.
Samsung Galaxy A8 (2016) was introduced last year in South Korea. It packs the Exynos 7420 Octa processor, 3 GB RAM, 32 GB internal storage, a 5.7-inch full HD display, as well as a fingerprint reader and Samsung Pay support. The model number that surfaced on GFXBench is SM-A810.
The launch of this update would not be the first one to target the A series of handsets since the Galaxy A5 (2016) already got Android Nougat and became the first non-flagship to receive the treatment. Samsung did not reveal the date of arrival for this new Nougat update, but we expect it to be out in the wild by mid-June.
