Android Nougat For Samsung Galaxy J5 (2016) Is Here!
After Google released Android Oreo on August 21, the only question everybody has is if their phone would receive the update anytime soon. But the reality is that, at this point, there is still a big bunch waiting for last year's Android 7.0 Nougat update. However, Samsung Galaxy J5 (2016) which was launched last year has now seen receiving WiFi certification from the WiFi Alliance (WFA) with Android 7.0 Nougat onboard.
The Samsung Galaxy J5 (2016) was spotted running Android 7.0 Nougat in the online database of the Wi-Fi Alliance, as reported by Android Headlines. The certification usually means that the official update should start rolling out anytime soon.
According to the listing, Samsung Galaxy J5 (2016) will support single-band Wi-Fi a/b/g/n (2.4GHz) and Wi-Fi Direct connectivity features. However, the listing shows that the device will be powered by Android 7.0 Nougat operating system.
The listing also reveals the smartphone with model number as SM-J510FN with the certification ID WFA64489 and the date of certification is 21st August 2017. Samsung Galaxy J5 (2017) has been running Android 7.0 Nougat since its launch, but its precursor of the same device is getting this version almost now, as reported by Dutch website Galaxy Club.
The latest spotted certification does not betray when Samsung wants to roll out the update to the device. All we know is that the start of the rollout is getting closer. It might take weeks or even months before the new software actually roll out to the Dutch devices. However, since the update has started collecting necessary certifications, it shouldn't be too long before it starts hitting units in the wild.
With Android Nougat on Samsung Galaxy J5 (2016), the smartphone will receive the update in form of multi-window support, improved reading on the smartphone with the ability to resize text and screen size. In addition, the notifications panel will also be updated, giving users the option to respond to messages directly via the notifications bar. Android Nougat also has shortcuts like double tapping recent apps button, which will help the user toggle between multiple apps.
