Samsung Galaxy S5 is next in line to receive the latest July 2017 Security update. Although, the manufacturer may never release Nougat firmware update for the Galaxy S5, it still benefits from the timely security patches. With the latest July security level comes a new Baseband version G900FXXU1CQG1. The complete change log is not yet known. However, one thing is for sure. It brings system stability, bug fixes, performance optimizations, and of course, the latest AOSP sources.
We have already seen similar OTA rolling out for several other Samsung phones. The update is considered stable with minimum bugs. See how to download and install it right away. However, this firmware build is still based on 6.0.1 Marshmallow TouchWiz UX for the stunning S5. If you would like to install Nougat onto Galaxy S5, then custom ROMS like Lineage OS 14.1 ROM based on Android 7.1.2 are your best options.
List of Samsung devices already on July update:
- Samsung Galaxy S8/S8+
- Samsung Galaxy S7/S7 Edge
- Samsung Galaxy S6/S6Edge/S6 Edge+
- Galaxy J5/J7
- Galaxy A3/A5/A7
