Not so long ago, Samsung Galaxy A3 2016 was certified by the Wi-Fi Alliance with Android 7.0 Nougat on board, prompting suggestions that the OS’ release is just around the corner.
Samsung Galaxy A3 2016 is not the only Galaxy A 2016 device that has been lined up for an update to Android 7.0 Nougat. So far, the high-end Galaxy A5 2016 and Galaxy A7 2016 are also part of the game. If the latest listings on Wi-Fi Alliance are anything to go by, the two should also be joining the A3 2016 in the “coming soon” release date bracket for Nougat.
The certification body has cleared a series of variants for the two phones, with each one featuring Android 7.0 Nougat OS. Although this appearances can guarantee that Samsung Galaxy A5 2016 and Galaxy A7 2016 will indeed be updated to the latest Nougat OS in the not-so-distant future, the specific release date cannot be confirmed just yet.
Samsung Galaxy A5 2016 has been cleared for model numbers SM-A510X, SM-A510M, SM-A510M/DS, SM-A510L, SM-A510Y, SM-A510Y/DS, SM-A510S, SM-A510K, SM-A510F, and SM-A510F/DS. As for the Galaxy A7 2016, the cleared model numbers include SM-A710S, SM-A710F, SM-A710F/DS, SM-A710K, SM-A710M, SM-A710M/DS, SM-A710L, SM-A710X, and SM-A710Y/DS.
A previous Samsung Galaxy Android 7.0 Nougat roadmap had pegged the OS’ release date for Samsung Galaxy A3 2016 at April 24, which is actually Monday next week. As per the same report, the Galaxy A5 2016 and A7 2016 are to receive the same treat beginning May 22. But as usual with software update release dates, you can expect changes to these dates.
