The Galaxy J3 (2016) is an entry-level smartphone from Samsung’s budget Galaxy J series. It has been out for quite a few months now, in some markets the handset is being shipped with Marshmallow installed straight out of the box. However, users in Europe haven’t been that lucky as the Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow update still evades the Galaxy J3 (2016) in this particular region.
Samsung today rolled out a firmware update for the Galaxy J3 (2016) in the Netherlands. Software version LMY47V.J320FNXXU0APH1 is a minor update that brings bug fixes, stability and performance improvements. The handset is currently on Android 5.1.1 Lollipop and while many would have expected that Samsung will finally come through with Marshmallow, it appears that they will have to keep waiting. The latest firmware update for the Galaxy J3 (2016) in Europe also bumps up the handset to the August security patch, you know what they say, better late than never. It’s unclear at this point in time when Samsung is going to release Marshmallow for the Galaxy J3 (2016) in Europe.
