Android Nougat Update To Original Samsung Galaxy J7 Could Release

Jun 12, 2017 11:13 AM EDT


Original Samsung Galaxy J7 was released in June 2015, running Android Lollipop and was later updated to 6.0.1 Marshmallow. The two-year-old Samsung Galaxy J7 was absolutely not in the cards for an Android 7.0 Nougat update. However, it looks like Samsung has will be rolling out Android Nougat update original Samsung Galaxy J7.

Samsung Galaxy J7 (2015) recently received Wi-Fi certification with Android 7.0 Nougat on board. The Smartphone's model in question here is SM-J701M, as reported by GSM Arena.

Samsung Galaxy J7 2015 turns two years old this month and having been launched with Android 5.1 Lollipop, it has got three iterations of Android. In addition to this variant of the Samsung Galaxy J7 2015, models SM-J701M/DS and SM-J701MT are also decided to receive Android Nougat update soon.

Samsung is said to roll out Android 7.0 Nougat to the Original Samsung Galaxy J7. This will be the second major OS update to the smartphone received in one year. Samsung's mid-range smartphone has released with Android 5.1 Lollipop out of the box, but an Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow was launched last year, as reported by Phone Arena.

The hustle to move to Android Nougat inside Samsung has died down a bit. Currently, Android 8.0 might come out into the open in August. After this, OEMs will start distributing the Android 8.0 update to their flagships first. Unfortunately, for Samsung smartphone, the present flagships only appear to have the maximum possibility of receiving the update by this year.

In any case, Android 7.0 Nougat will be the last major OS update the Samsung Galaxy J7 (2015) will obtain. So it would probably be best to switch to a newer device if the user wants to benefit from all the new features and improvements included in Android 8.0 O.

For the Samsung Galaxy J7 2015, reports say that it is highly suspect that device will get to see Android 8.0 in its lifetime. Perhaps the modding community will help those users to achieve that goal.
