The Android 7.0 Nougat rollout continues with more mobile phones getting updated on Samsung’s end. The latest model confirmed to get the newest operating system is the Galaxy A5.

Word of such comes from Optus of Australia. The mobile carrier confirmed that the Galaxy A5 will be getting another Android update next month. Testing is underway for the device which originally debuted back in 2014.

Android 7.0 Nougat Updates To Continue For Samsung Galaxy A5

Since launching two years ago, the Samsung Galaxy A5 has been through different Android operating systems. It came out with Android 4.4 Kitkat out of the box with Android 6.0 Marshmallow the last one, Phone Arena reported.

When Android 6.0 was released, many Samsung Galaxy A5 owners believed that this would be the last major update. It turns out that their speculations were wrong with the final version expected to come out in January 2017.

More Mobile Carriers Could Follow

With Optus confirming Android 7.0 Nougat for the Samsung Galaxy A5, it seems plausible to see other carriers following soon. Right now, there is no reason for Samsung not to give device owners the Android bump.

Looking ahead, such could speak well for other models such as the Samsung Galaxy A3. Though it packs lesser RAM, the fact that its chipset can accommodate the features brought by Android 7.0 Nougat makes plenty of sense. Either way, all that should be covered during the current testings.

Other devices on the verge of getting an Android 7.0 Nougat update include the Samsung Galaxy S7 courtesy of Vodafone, Neurogadget reported. Curiously, there may be some models moving ahead with an Android 7.1.1 Nougat.

Samsung is currently running the fourth version of Android Nougat Beta, something that comes with improvements and bug fixes. With any luck, both the Samsung Galaxy S7 and S7 Edge should be getting the Android jump soon.
