Samsung Galaxy S5 Neo was launched in July 2015 with Android 5.1.1 Lollipop onboard. It was only a while back it received a major update that bumped the OS version to Android 6.0. However, it seems like the two-year-old device is up for another major update soon.
The Galaxy S5 Neo was found running Android 7.0 Nougat on GFXBench a few ago. This could mean that the Korean tech giant is testing the latest Android software on the device. Although we are not sure about the exact date the company will roll out the update to the users, it is expected to happen anytime soon once the testing is completed.
It was launched back in August 2015 as a variant of the original Galaxy S5. Unlike the Galaxy S5, the Neo variant had a different processor and support for LTE-A. Talking about the specs, the smartphone featured a 5.1-inch FullHD display, 2GB RAM, 16GB storage and 2800 mAh battery. It was powered by an octa-core Exynos 7580 processor clocked at 1.6GHz coupled with Mali-T720MP2 GPU.
According to TheAndroidSoul, the new update will bring all the Nougat goodies for the smartphone including multi-window split-screen mode, revamped notification shade, and improved Settings menu.
As mentioned earlier, the update is expected to hit the device soon after the testing is over. So, the users better watch out for the update coming in the next few weeks!
