There are still many Samsung devices that have yet to be updated to Android 8.0 Oreo and it appears that the company is now rolling out said update for a mid-range device. Multiple reports have surfaced online confirming that the rollout has begun for the Galaxy A5 (2017). Samsung appears to have started the Galaxy A5 (2017) Android 8.0 Oreo release in Russia. As expected, it’s a hefty update, coming in at more than 1GB as it brings a major Android platform upgrade as well as updates for Samsung’s own software as well.
It’s about time that Samsung updated the premium mid-range handsets from last year so it’s likely that we’ll see the rollout being expanded to other devices in this series in the not too distant future.
The changelog of the update appears to be similar to the one we saw with the Oreo update for the Galaxy Note 8 and the Galaxy S8, this means that users can expect to get almost all of Google’s new features in Oreo as well as Samsung’s improved software features.
It’s only a matter of time now before the Galaxy A5 (2017) Oreo update makes its way to more markets across the globe. We’ll start hearing more reports about its rollout in the days to come.
