    Snapdragon 820 phones with Android Nougat have Galileo support yet.
    This feature is integrated in the latest Snapdragon 800, 600, and 400 processors and modems.
    Galileo will be supported on smartphones and compute devices with the appropriate software release on Snapdragon 820, 652, 650, 625, 617, and 435 processors, automotive infotainment solutions utilizing Snapdragon 820A, and telematics and IoT solutions with Snapdragon X16, X12, X7, and X5 LTE Modems, and 915 and MDM6x00 modems.

    Currently 14 out of 24 sats in service, I wonder what's the coverage? Visible everywhere or only in certain location?

    As of December 2016 the system has 18 of 30 satellites in orbit.

    When Galileo, Europe's own global satellite navigation system, is fully operational, there will be 30 satellites in Medium Earth Orbit (MEO) at an altitude of 23 222 kilometers. Ten satellites will occupy each of three orbital planes inclined at an angle of 56 to the equator. The satellites will be spread evenly around each plane and will take about 14 hours to orbit the Earth. One satellite in each plane will be a spare; on stand-by should any operational satellite fail.

    14 operational with 4 for test according to [Only registered and activated users can see links. ]
    If it takes 10 sats to cover 1/3 area, then 14 is falling short of total coverage. From video, even with 15 there are gaps in coverage even in some European countries.

    Sure, it's half way, ground assets must be implemented too.
    Fortunately,the Galileo signal is available to the public well before all the services are declared operational, with every new Galileo satellite deployed, value will be added as it is not necessary to wait until having the full constellation in place.

    Note: I will move this thread soon merging it with the previous one here: [Only registered and activated users can see links. ]

    I'm not saying that it's bad or anything. GALILEO is a good program, it has contribution from many countries. Full services for all area will takes time. That is why I said most (if not all) chipsets that has GALILEO will also have GPS or GLONASS as well. This would help those new devices; if you can't use GALILEO yet, just use GPS or GLONASS services.

    Mediatek announced/launched in 2013 the MT3332/MT3333 chipset.
    I quote: "It supports GPS, GLONASS, Beidou, Galileo, QZSS, and SBAS."

    On market are allready devices that are using gps modules based on that chipset.
    They might need a firmware update though.

    But currently there are:
    -Only 11 satellites: USABLE.
    -1 satellite: UNAVAILABLE FROM 2014-05-27 UNTIL FURTHER NOTICE.
    -2 satellites: in TESTING
    -4 satellites: in COMMISSIONING (the last 4 satellites launched)
    We can see it here:
    NAGU (Notice Advisory to Galileo Users):
    Code:

    And if I understand, currently there are only 11 satellites with USABINIT NAGU ISSUED.
    (USABINIT: Satellite first time usable ->The satellite is for the first time providing signals and navigation messages according to the service performance commitment.)

    As it is obvious according to the previous posts Huawei mate 9 is GALILEO compatible, but so is/was the Samsung Note 7 and probably/hopefully the S8.
