After Europe, India, Africa and the U.S. (Sprint), Samsung Galaxy Note 5 users in South Korea can now speak the same language as Galaxy S7 and S7 Edge users – Android 7.0 Nougat.
The OS was first released to the Galaxy Note 5 in Europe and later on, it made a stop in India. A few days ago, reports came in confirming that the Galaxy Note 5 Duos was also receiving the Nougat treat and just yesterday, Sprint started giving the same treat to users of the Galaxy Note 5 in the U.S.
According to the latest developments, a Samsung Galaxy Note 5 variant with model number SM-N920S is now receiving the Nougat update over the air. This is a South Korean model of the same phone and the firmware coming in has build number N920SKSU2DQC7.
In addition to bringing Android 7.0 Nougat, the update also installs the latest Android security patch on your phone. This also means that you get bug fixes and performance enhancements alongside the many new features resulting from a Nougat update. Since it’s an OTA update, it will be rolled out gradually, which means that some units will receive the treat somewhere next week.
If you can’t wait for this to happen normally, you can take a shorter path to the update. Here, you’ll need to go to the phone’s Settings>About phone>System update>Check for updates. This will let you download and install Android 7.0 Nougat on your Galaxy Note 5 manually, but make sure your phone’s battery is at least 50% charged before you proceed. Since the update is a major one, it is also recommended that you connect to the internet via Wi-Fi to avoid extra charges.
Even though some regions are already receiving the Nougat OS on Samsung Galaxy S6 series, this is the only 2015 Sammy device that is reportedly being updated in the Korean market, at least for now. As for the others, the Nougat treat should be around the corner and it won’t be long before it starts rolling out.
