Galaxy S7 Nougat

Following the Nougat rollout for the Galaxy S7 and S7 edge, Samsung has now revealed the list of phones that will receive the update next. Here's the list of phones (and tablets) that will pick up the Nougat update in the first half of 2017:

  • Galaxy S6
  • Galaxy S6 edge
  • Galaxy S6 edge+
  • Galaxy Note 5
  • Galaxy Tab A with S Pen
  • Galaxy Tab S2 LTE (unlocked variant)
  • Galaxy A3
  • Galaxy A8

Seeing as how the list has several notable omissions, including the Galaxy A5, A7, and the popular Galaxy J series, it is likely not the final list of phones that will pick up the Nougat update. On the flip side, that means that phones not on the list will not be updated to Nougat before at least the third quarter of 2017, which is a lengthy wait for a platform update.
