Samsung has stated its intentions to update several of its smartphones to Android Nougat. While some devices have already begun to receive the software, there have also been rumors about others updating soon. However, SamMobile recently revealed a list of Samsung devices, which are expected to get the latest Google software.
Here’s a rundown of Samsung’s Android Nougat update list and their current software statuses.
Samsung Galaxy A series 2016/2017
Samsung will likely update the Galaxy A3, Galaxy A5 and Galaxy A7 both 2016 and 2017 models as well as the Galaxy A8, Galaxy A9 and Galaxy A9 Pro 2016 models, according to SamMobile. Prior reports have indicated that Samsung would update devices in the Galaxy A 2016 line to Android Nougat. Samsung released its Galaxy A 2017 line, running Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow in early January, making the devices good candidates to update to Android Nougat in the future.
Samsung Galaxy S6 Series
Samsung will likely update the Galaxy S6, Galaxy S6 Active, Galaxy S6 Edge and Galaxy S6 Edge+ to Android Nougat. November reports indicated Samsung had begun developing the Android Nougat update for the Galaxy S6 and Galaxy S6 Edge. Updates for these devices are expected to soon follow updates for the Galaxy S7. The Galaxy S6 Active was also spotted running Android Nougat on a popular benchmark test. There is currently no word on an update timeline for the Galaxy S6 Edge +.
Samsung Galaxy S7 Series
Samsung is currently updating the Galaxy S7 and Galaxy S7 Edge in regions including the U.S., U.K and China to Android Nougat, with other markets expecting to get the software in coming days and weeks. The Galaxy S7 Active has not begun updating, but it has also been spotted running Android Nougat on a popular benchmark test.
Other Samsung Galaxy Devices
The Galaxy Note 5 and Galaxy Tab S2 are also expected to update to Android Nougat. These devices may be some of the last to update as they are slightly older than other devices on the list. However, both the Galaxy Note 5 and Galaxy Tab S2 have been spotted running Android Nougat on benchmarks.
