Samsung Galaxy S5 Won’t Get Nougat Update

By  | 

If you own the Samsung Galaxy S5 you are more than likely going to be left disappointed when it comes to the Android Nougat update.

It has been said that devices from Samsung are going to receive the update to Android Nougat and they should get it before the end of the year. The flagship handset the Samsung Galaxy S7 will be among the first to receive it but what about older devices?

It is thought that the Samsung Galaxy S5 isn’t going to get updated to Android 7 Nougat as usually devices have a general rule of two major software updates and then they are done with. So if the handset arrives with Android 4.0, for instance 4.4.2, as the S5 did, then it would get as far as Android 6.0 or 6.0.1. This doesn’t bode well for the Nougat update of course.

The Samsung Galaxy S5 has now reached a stage of being upgraded where it isn’t going to get anymore updated, so this means that it has now finished with Android updated. Of course this isn’t to say that owners of the device are not going to get Nougat as they may by way of a custom ROM.

Are you hoping that your Samsung Galaxy S5 will get Android Nougat, even if it is by way of a custom ROM?
