Having launched with Lollipop Android 5.1.1 installed, the Galaxy A5 2017 has been updated by Samsung to Marshmallow, and Android 7.0 Nougat OS. Getting two major Android updates is usually all that a device gets, so we would consider it End Of life situation for the A5 2016, and thus do not expect Samsung to release the Android 8.0 Oreo update for it.
