Anonymous, 29 Aug 2017what about the Note 4 Exynos Version? It has better Exynos Chipset than this.Many Android OEM only support their device up to 2 years or 2 major OS updates (many less with just up to 18 months or 1 major OS update depending on your device class).
Galaxy Note 4 is already 2 years old device, so it's not surprise that Note 4 won't received Nougat despite have a better hardware than S5 Neo. You can use custom ROM if you like to taste Nougat on your Note 4 or just buy Google Pixel device if you want long supported device next time.
Anonymous, 29 Aug 2017what about the Note 4 Exynos Version? It has better Exynos Chipset than this.The S5 neo is a S5 "re-release" with Android 5.1.1. It has thus the support of the S6, not the S5. The Note 4 has the support of the S5, plus frequent enhancement updates. And the CPU isn't the problem. The Exynos 5433 and the SD805 support Nougat and meet all prerequisite. Unfortunately, as the Tab S2 with E5433 received Nougat, and the Nexus 6 with SD805 too, the reason is that Samsung is not feeling like giving an update even if the phone deserves it.

Do you realize that latest Windows Mobile OS can't even match the features we had on Android Jelly bean few years back?
Seriously you guys like to make fun of yourselves!
Such a bummer that Android can make HW obsolete. Guess I am fortunate I do not use Android at the moment. Don't have that problem on Windows where 4 yr old Nokia phones can run the latest OS updates.
Android should support phones especially flagship phones for about 4 years or so. They put there the latest and best hardware during the release of the phone and it can only support the OS for 2 years?! Are you telling the customers that the best and latest hardware cannot support the OS after 2 years of upgrade, it will become obsolete, lag, and useless?
EverythingApple, 28 Aug 2017When it'll be updated to 7.1.2? Android 7.0 is old nowWhat feature from 7.1.2 do you miss on a 7.0 samsung device?
Apolodor, 28 Aug 2017Nougat or marshmallow, same features, just different look. For guys that want the google notif... moreDepending on the phone, Nougat also brings graphic drivers implementing Vulkan.
A bit surprising for a forgotten device but it makes sense considering the two year life span.
it's not surprising at all, this phone is a flagship (or a cheaper variant of one)
