The Samsung Galaxy A5 handsets in Netherlands started getting the Nougat update yesterday and today the update has started rolling out to other countries including Europe. The update comes with the build number A510FXXU4CQE9 and upgrades the Android version to 7.0 Nougat. It also brings with it the June security patch.
Earlier only the unbranded Galaxy A5 devices were getting the update in Netherlands. (An unbranded phone is a handset that is not purchased from T-Mobile and Vodafone). Now, the unlocked version is slowly starting to get updated across the world.
As expected, the 7.0 update brings all the basic Nougat features to the smartphone including an improved split-screen mode, an improved dose mode and more.
Also, the design of the UI has received some tweaking and the new version contains many visible changes. The updated User Interface looks better and cleaner, while the notification shade has been reworked too. Another notable feature added is the Secure Folder functionality.
What’s disappointing though is the fact that Samsung hasn’t updated the device to Android Nougat 7.1.1. Android 7.1.1 brought with it several fixes and optimisations.
To check for latest updates, go to Settings > About device > Software updates on your Galaxy A5. Since the update is rolling out by air, the update may reach you a little later. Enjoy the new update!
