The Samsung Galaxy A5 (2016) is a mid-range device from Samsung and the company always give the at least one major android update to these A-series lineup. Galaxy A5 (2016) Android 7.0 Nougat update has started to roll out and it is one of the first devices to receive it apart from the flagships like the Galaxy S7/S7 edge, Galaxy S6/S6 edge, and Galaxy Note 5.
One of the major factors why users buy a Samsung device even if they would have to pay a bit of a premium is because of the timely updates. One user in Russia claims he already managed to successfully capture the Galaxy A5 (2016) Android 7.0 Nougat update via OTA, and he’s also got a video to prove it.
If you happen to own a Galaxy A5 (2016) and you live in Russia, you might want to look for a new update with firmware version A510FXXU4CQDK. The update is not available through Samsung Smart Switch, so the only way to get it is via OTA.
Even though we expect Samsung to continue the rollout of the update to other countries in the coming weeks, we don’t know how long it will take for it to propagate to all Galaxy A5 (2016) units. But, certainly, every A series (2016), user is likely to get the Nougat update.
