Initially, the company said the update will arrive in June, but it's only now starting its rollout.
The update brings along Android Nougat version 7.1.1 and also bumps the Android security level to November. There's no information on the reason behind such a huge delay, but it's good to see the update arriving nonetheless.
To get an idea, the Galaxy S5 Neo has not yet received the Android Nougat in most countries where it has been released. Only Canadians have been lucky so far.
It should only be distributed at the end of 2018. Or, at worst, early 2019.
At least Brazil is a priority for some OEM. Why expect similar treatment from Samsung, LG, etc ...
