Samsung Galaxy Note 5 on Sprint has just joined the Android 7.0 Nougat party, even before the country’s unlocked variants of the Galaxy S7 and S7 Edge receive the same treat.
All carrier versions of last year’s Galaxy S7 and S7 Edge have been updated to the latest Android 7.0 Nougat OS and with this done, attention has now shifted to the 2015 flagship – the Galaxy Note 5. Sprint is ahead of the park this time, joining those in Europe, India as well as those using the Galaxy Note 5 Duos variant in receiving the Nougat treat.
If you are using Samsung Galaxy Note 5 on Sprint carrier, you can now be sure of receiving an OTA notification to download the new Android 7.0 Nougat OS on your phone. This update carries software version N920PVPU3DQC5 and being a major update, it weighs close to 1.5GB.
Even though Sprint hasn’t made an update to its support page indicating that Android 7.0 Nougat is rolling out to the Galaxy Note 5, the fact that the update has appeared on the carrier’s model is enough to confirm that indeed the OS is being pushed out.
Since Sprint had already rolled out February’s Android security patch to the Galaxy Note 5 phablet, we expect this new OTA update to also come with the latest security patch, which will possibly be for the month of March. This month’s version started rolling out just this week, which means it could hit the device later this month or early next month.
Sprint users of the Note 5 can try checking for the update manually and see if it’s available and ready for download. This can be done via Settings>About phone>System updates. Alternatively, you can just relax and wait for the OTA notification to appear, which could take days or even weeks.
