Any handset released in 2017 is expected to at least run on Android Nougat v7.0 and above, but that wasn't the case with Samsung's Galaxy A branded smartphones of 2017. Instead, when they came out, they were running on Android Marshmallow 6.0.1; a version of Android that while isn't old enough yet to be called backdated, is still over two years old at this point of time. The good news is that although late, the Galaxy A5 (2017) and the Galaxy A7 (2017) will both be getting their respective versions of the Android Nougat firmware officially from Samsung soon.
Both the Galaxy A5 (2017) and the Galaxy A7 (2017) has been spotted running on Nougat 7.0, merely hours earlier at the Wi-Fi Alliance website for certification purposes. This is a clear indication that the updates are just about to be rolled out to the Galaxy A smartphones for 2017. If you own one, keep that Wi-Fi fired up!
