It’s time for mid-range smartphones from Samsung to get the Android Nougat 7.0 update. Yes, it’s pretty late, considering smartphones are getting the Oreo 8.0 update, but most of the mid-range smartphone are still stuck with older Android OS.
Samsung Galaxy C5 is getting Android Nougat 7.0 – in China, the version is C5000ZCU1BQJ2 and it has a size of 1.4 GB.
Android Nougat 7.0 Features
Those who own a Galaxy C5 will find every great feature, such as Split screen mode, new menu settings, a different design for notifications, separate wallpapers for home screen and for wallpapers and more. You’ll also see that the OS is more stable and there are some bugs that have been fixed.
The Samsung Galaxy C5 was exclusively launched for China in 2016 and got Android Marshmallow out of the box. Unfortunately, Samsung hasn’t decided to update the OS to Oreo. Getting Nougat is an improvement, nonetheless.
What to Do Before You Start Updating Your Galaxy C5?
Before you begin updating your OS, you should make sure that your phone has at least 60% battery or you can keep it plugged into a power source. You should also back-up important files and data and make sure you have some room on the internal storage for the file you are about to download.
If you are not in China and you don’t have the OS update, then check if it is available by going to: ‘Settings’ -> ‘About Phone’ -> ‘System Software updates’. If there is nothing there, you can also download the OTA zip file and flash it manually.
As for a future Android Oreo 8.0, the Samsung Galaxy C5 will be able to run it in the future. But until the time it gets a newer OS, you will probably have to wait about a year, since it just received the previous version (Nougat) at a one-year gap from when it was launched with the Android Marshmallow OS.
