Samsung’s midrange offerings A5 and A7 has received Android Nougat update and is slowly being rolled out. For the A5, the major OS update has reached users in Russia and is expected to reach other markets soon.
The update brings a new UI, an improved, more stock Android approach to the multi-window, improved notifications, among others. Unlike the Galaxy A7 2017, there is no mention if the A5 2017 will get the Dual Messenger update. This feature allows users to log in to two accounts of social networking apps on the same device.
To check if the update is available for your device, go to Settings > Software Update. The major software update comes in at more than 1GB in size.
