Update Samsung Galaxy A7 to Android 5.0.2 Lollipop (XXU1BOE6). Samsung has released the A700FDXXU1BOE6 (XXU1BOE6) based on Android 5.0.2 Lollipop firmware for the Galaxy A7 A700FD, the firmware comes with UI Material Design, bug-fixes, and of course enhancements and improvements to make sure this phone will run as smooth as possible.
Albeit the expected feature, like Galaxy S6 UX not yet included in this firmware, but hey we are handed with Android 5.0.2 Lollipop experiences and abilities now, that should be enough at least for now. Well the XXU1BOE6 Android 5.0.2 firmware is specifically released for the Dual-SIM based Samsung Galaxy A7 A700FD.
So if you own that phone you can expect its availability on either System Update feature on your phone or via Samsung KIES notifications.
However if you don’t get any notifications neither from OTA nor KIES, for some reasons such as your device is rooted or probably because it has not reached your region.
