Samsung Galaxy Note 5 gets Android Nougat on Sprint

Samsung Galaxy Note 5 Android phablet gets Nougat update on Sprint

Although the most recent Note phablet still available for the masses received the Nougat update in other parts of the world already, Sprint now becomes the first US carrier to roll out Android 7.0 in the country.

Unleashed back in August 2015, Samsung's Galaxy Note 5 (marketed by Samsung as "Note5") arrived on the market with Android 5.1.1 Lollipop on board. In the meantime, this 5.7-inch phablet was updated to Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow, then it started to receive the Nougat update as well.

However, US carriers were not in a hurry to deliver the new firmware and so Sprint becomes the first one to bring Android 7.0 to Galaxy Note 5 units on its network. The new software version is N920PVPU3DQC5 and comes in a 1.4 GB file. In addition to the new Android Nougat features everyone should be familiar with already, the new firmware should also bring the latest TouchWiz/Samsung Experience version that Galaxy S7 handsets have been receiving in the latest months.

Samsung Galaxy Note 5 is still a strong device, offering Samsung Pay support and also coming with a stylus. Its specs include the Exynos 7420 Octa processor, 4 GB RAM, 4G LTE connectivity, and up to 128 GB internal storage.

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.
