Galaxy J3 (2016) gets May 2017 Android security patch
Although Samsung recently unveiled the Galaxy J3 (2017) along with some other Galaxy J (2017) series smartphones, the company hasn’t forgotten its older devices. The Galaxy J3 (2016), an entry-level smartphone that was launched in March last year, has received May 2017 Android security patch with the latest software update.
The Galaxy J3 (2016) has started receiving a 143.13MB update to firmware version J320FNXXU0AQE1, bringing bug fixes, performance improvements, and May 2017 security patch to the device. However, the phone still remains at Android 5.1.1 Lollipop, and the company hasn’t updated it to Android 6.0 (Marshmallow) even now, let along Android 7.0 (Nougat).
The update is currently being rolled out to unlocked variants of the Galaxy J3 (2016) in European markets and India, and it could soon be rolled out to other countries soon. The device previously received March security patch in Europe. If you haven’t received the update yet, you can check for it manually by heading to the Software Update section in the Settings menu.
