[Updated: Galaxy A8 & A9 too] Samsung Galaxy A7 (2018) Gets WFA Approval with Android Pie Ahead of April 2019 Release


Several variants of Samsung Galaxy A7 (2018) with beginning model number SM-A750 have acquired approval from Wi-Fi Alliance certification body.

[Update: Jan 18]: Several variants of two more Samsung smartphones, namely Galaxy A8 (2018) with model number SM-A530 and Galaxy A9 (2018) SM-A920 have also bagged WFA approval with Android 9 Pie onboard. Both these devices were supposed to get Pie update by April 2019 along with Galaxy A7 (2018) and this certification only seems to hint at earlier release.

[Original: Jan 17]: Just before Christmas last year, Samsung sent updates to its users via Samsung Members app highlighting its plans of Android Pie upgrade rollout to several of its devices that were slated to get Android Pie OS.

One among them was Samsung Galaxy A7 (2018) which was released just a few months ago in October 2018 with Android Oreo 8.0 on board. Considering that it’s a relatively new phone, it’s not surprising to see that it’s going to get Android Pie OS. It has been mentioned in this very list that Android 9 Pie upgrade for Galaxy A7 (2019) would be rolled out in the month of April 2019.

Coming to the Wi-Fi certification, we can see as many as ten different variants of the Galaxy A7 phone that have been certified with Android Pie. This includes devices for all countries and not just for any particular region. They include SM-A750F, F/DS (EMEA region), SM-A750FN, FN/DS (Europe), SM-A750G (Hong Kong), G/DS, SM-A750GN, GN/DS, SM-A750N and SM-A750X.
