The company was already good with security updates this year, providing monthly patches even for its upper mid-range device. However, with that said, the Android Nougat 7.0 will start arriving soon in the country in phases, so be patient. With the update now seeding in South Korea, we can soon expect it to come in other countries as well in the following weeks.

As always the norm, make sure battery is more than�60% in r.eserve and download the update via WiFi rather than on Mobile data. If you haven’t received the pop-up yet, jump into Settings > About Phone > and System Updates, to check them manually.
