Galaxy A3 (2016) Nougat update released

It appears that Samsung is now rolling out the much-awaited Android 7.0 Nougat update to the cheapest model in its Galaxy A series. The company has reportedly started rolling out Android 7.0 Nougat for the Galaxy A3 (2016) in Europe.

Not like this wasn’t expected. We saw evidence of the Nougat update being developed for the Galaxy A3 (2016) just a few weeks ago which suggested that it may not be long before this update is finally released for the handset.

The first reports of this handset receiving said update came in from Hungary so it’s quite likely that this update will soon be released in other markets across Europe. Firmware version A310FXXU3CQE6 is now being rolled out for this handset in Hungary.

Since this is an over-the-air firmware update, it’s obviously going to take some time before the update is available for all users. It’s unclear at this point in time how long it will take for the update to be released in additional markets.

The firmware update weighs in at just under 1GB and brings all of the features that you have come to expect from the Nougat update, including but not limited to the Multi-Window mode, improved Doze mode and notifications shade, user interface tweaks and more.
