Samsung Releases The List Of Its Phones That Will Get Android Nougat

Samsung is the biggest manufacturer of Android phones by a wide margin, but that doesn’t guarantee timely updates. Today, months after Nougat was announced, the company has finally detailed which phones will get the update.

Right off the bat, Samsung is rolling out Android 7.0 to the Galaxy S7 and Galaxy S7 Edge. Beyond the two current flagships, the company says it plans to bring Nougat to a number of devices “within the first half of the year”. Here’s the full list of devices getting the update:

  • Galaxy S7
  • Galaxy S7 Edge
  • Galaxy S6
  • Galaxy S6 Edge
  • Galaxy S6 Edge Plus
  • Galaxy Note 5
  • Galaxy Tab A with S Pen
  • Galaxy Tab S2 (LTE unlock)
  • Galaxy A3
  • Galaxy A8

That’s a decent list, even if it only encompasses a portion of Samsung’s product lineup. Moreover, most of these devices won’t see an update until Google’s nearly ready to announce the next version of Android. Still, it’s better than nothing.
