Galaxy J3 Emerge receives Wi-Fi certification running Android 7.0 Nougat

A handset, bearing the same model as the Galaxy J3 Emerge, has been granted Wi-Fi certification for the second time in three months, but this time running Android 7.0 Nougat. Typically, when a unit is certified running a new flavor of the open-source operating system, it indicates that a rollout is right around the corner.

However, there’s a minor discrepancy. The Galaxy J3 Emerge, which started making its way into the hands of the public on Friday, January 6, is listed on Samsung’s website as running Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow. Seeing as the device is brand new, we find it strange that the firm didn’t release it with Nougat on board.

Nevertheless, it’s still reassuring to hear that it’ll be receiving the much-anticipated Android 7.0 update sooner, rather than later. The only thing left to say is that if Samsung was as dedicated to bringing the upgrade to its aging lineup of former flagships as it is to new handsets, customers would be a lot happier.
