The Samsung Galaxy A8 smartphone is a beauty to behold along with the specs packed on the device, however, one of the most troubling issues with the smartphone is the lack of Android 7 Nougat update as the South Korean tech company has slowed down the pace of rollout.
Coming after months of complaints by fans, the tech company has finally confirmed that the Nougat update for the Galaxy A8 is set to land soon.
The certified models of the smartphones which will be getting the Nougat OS update include the SM-A810S, SM-A810F/DS, and SM-810YS according to information made available online by Wi-Fi Alliance after the device passed its certification test.
The three models of the A8 (2016) will be able to experience a wide range of updated features including the split-screen view, better customizable quick settings, an improved Google keyboard and also the enhanced notifications and recent applications window.
Coming with the Nougat update also will be an extended battery life and some Samsung-specific software to include Samsung Pass.
It is important to recall that the A8 (2016) comes packing a 5.7-inch Super AMOLED display with a screen resolution of 1920 x 1080 and under the hood boasts of the Samsung Exynos 7420 processor paired with a double four ARM Cortex A57 CPU system. For graphics, the device runs the Mali T-760MP8 GPU and 3GB of RAM.
Onboard storage size is pegged at 32GB which is further expandable to as much as 256GB using the microSD card. And as for camera, the 156.60 x 76.80 x 7.20 mm measuring device which weighs 182 grams comes packing a 16MP rear camera sensor on the back panel and an 8MP camera sensor on the front panel all powered by a 3,300mAh battery.
