This week Samsung made another much needed to one of their older devices, the 2016 variant of the Samsung Galaxy A5.

With this update, Samsung brought Android Nougat to the smartphone this week, bringing it in line with some of Samsung’s other smartphones and bringing it closer to the rest of the market.

On top of that, the update also brings the May security patches to the smartphone.

It is available in Europe now as the firmware version A510FXXU4CQE9, which can be downloaded over-the-air right now.

It is only available on unlocked units right now, however, we presume it will make its way to locked ones too soon as well as to other units in other regions.

Here’s the full changelog for the update:

  • OS upgrade – Android Nougat 7.0
  • New UX and various performance modes
