Samsung has finally rolled out the official Android 7.0 Nougat to Galaxy J7 (2016) and Galaxy J5 (2016) in more countries. The update comes with a couple of improvements, including the latest version of Samsung Experience.

Galaxy J7 (2016) and Galaxy J5 (2016) owners from around the world, including India, are now receiving Android 7.0 Nougat. On top of all the new features arriving with the software update, Samsung Experience is the major haul in the update.

Later in August, IBTimes Singapore first reported the initial release of Android Nougat to Galaxy J5 (2016) smartphones. About a week ago, Galaxy J7 (2016) owners in Russia also received Nougat.

However, it has to be noted that not all changes that come with the latest Samsung Experience build are available for Galaxy J7 and Galaxy J5. The user interface's latest update for these devices would include the reduction of frame drops and App Pair, a feature that allows users to launch two apps in a similar window.

Samsung also makes the interface more stable, more efficient and faster. Apparently, improvements on facial and iris recognition and S Pen are not applicable to the devices.

Android 7.0 Nougat has also been confirmed coming to other Galaxy devices, including the Galaxy A8, Galaxy A9 Pro, Galaxy Tab E, Galaxy C5, Galaxy C7 and Galaxy C9 Pro, among many others.
