Having the latest and the greatest version of any operating system is always something that device and hardware owners do look forward to, even though said device might be a couple of years old already. Well, Samsung Galaxy Note 5 owners will be grinning from ear to ear upon hearing this piece of news -- that the phablet from South Korea is all set to pick up the Android 7.0 Nougat update, at long last. To sweeten the deal, the Android 7.0 Nougat update for the Galaxy Note 5 would see a worldwide release, now how about that?
So far, we do know that the Samsung Galaxy Note 5 has already begun to receive the Android 7.0 Nougat over in Turkey. What better way than to select the only country in the world that straddles two different continents: Asia and Europe, to showcase a diversity in its geographical make up? Not only that, there are also whispers from the ground that point to regular Joes and Janes in Europe have begun to pick up the Android 7.0 Nougat update -- and it is also most likely that the rest of the world is going to follow suit, which is just a matter of time.
Samsung Galaxy Note 5 is late to the Android 7.0 Nougat party
Better late than never applies to this particular case, that is for sure. At least Galaxy Note 5 owners will be able to enjoy some Nougat goodness after seeing how all of the other major smartphone manufacturers have done their bit in making sure that eligible devices have picked up the Android 7.0 Nougat update along the way, with Samsung seemingly lagging behind its competitors.
The Samsung Galaxy S6 and Galaxy S6 edge, which are two devices that are considered to be within the same generation as that of the Galaxy Note 5, did receive the Android 7.0 Nougat update some time back, with the Galaxy Note 5 seemingly forgotten. Well, all’s well that ends well in this case.
With Turkey as well as various parts of Europe picking up this major operating system update, many eyes are now focussed on North America. Just like in the olden days, you can say that North America would be the last frontier when it comes to the Android 7.0 Nougat update release for the Galaxy Note 5. There has been no official roll out date set by Samsung just yet, but it does seem as though it is going to happen sooner as opposed to later, taking into consideration the number of Galaxy Note 5 owners Stateside as well as in Canada.
Just make sure that your Galaxy Note 5 would have at least 1.4GB of storage space before proceeding with the installation. The Android 7.0 Nougat update would be approximately 1.3GB in size, making it imperative to perform a download of it via Wi-Fi as opposed to relying on your mobile data quota. Again, the usual procedure applies: ensure that you have adequate battery life beforehand, and also perform a back up of all your important data before proceeding.
Time to finally enjoy the Android 7.0 Nougat update on the Galaxy Note 5!
