Probably fake or just a huge misunderstanding. No phone released with KitKat (obviously not a nexus) has been updated to Nougat, and especially a midrange from no other than Samsung.
I hope this update won't increase the overheating on the device and decrease it's battery duration after a full charge, Samsung has way too many skills to make customers buy new devices. I also hope that they'll be no lagging because after the Marshmallow update the A5 500FU started to overheat after a few minutes of usage and the battery performance decreased
Are kidding me??? Original A5 gets the damn Nougat and S5 Plus G901F won't??? What the hell???
That would be funny. Then Samsung could continue and offer it as something like the Android One devices, low end (by that time) but still years of support
I had this phone for 7 months. At that time it was on android 5.0.1. I bought it new, and never had any problems with it. Hope this article is true for people that still use it. But on the other hand, I also hope that Nougat will be well optimized for A5 2015 and that wont decrease its performance.
Anonymous, 23 Dec 2016Erm I'm still waiting for the Marshmallow update...But I already received marshmallow through ota update last month. Try update it manually if you can't wait the ota update.
Emm bad news. No separate mention of the 2016 models, so it's probably referring to that, not the OG.
How about Note 4.Their own flagship that come out at the same year with the original A5!!I just hope that it would make it to note 4
First, still having security updates, then Nougat? My, Samsung sure is working hard to make up for the Note 7 and to regain trust!
I personally own an A5 and I hope to get that Nougat! The A5 is good looking, well built and a good mid-range device.
EDIT: Weird they only mentioned N for the A5 and not for the Note 4-5 or the S5-S6x-S7x.
Anonymous, 22 Dec 2016great! best midrange ever!I think a7 isnt a midrange phone instead a7s price.
Anonymous, 22 Dec 2016great! best midrange ever!congratz, this is the last update for this smartphone! still good, you will be on latest android whole year so thats good.
This is certainly something now! Well done Samsung :) I'm so happy to be an owner of this fabulous phone.
I do own a galaxy a5 2014 model and I dont think it would get the update not expected at all
when Samsung will upgrade the Android version of Samsung Galaxy Tab E 9.6? Samsung Galaxy Tab E 9.6 is stuck on KitKat 4.4.4.
