Galaxy J7 could receive the Android 7.0 Nougat update

It’s starting to look like the first-generation Galaxy J7 will receive the much-anticipated Android 7.0 update after all. The handset has been spotted on the Wi-Fi Alliance’s database running a build of Nougat, so it’s safe to assume that Samsung is planning on distributing the upgrade in the near future.

There’s no word on whether the update is on the cards for the original Galaxy J5, but we’re guessing it is. After all, both the Galaxy J5 and Galaxy J7 were announced—and released—at the same time, and they’re both capable of running the firmware without any hassle, leading us to believe that it will receive the upgrade.

For those unaware, Android 7.0 Nougat bundles a plethora of new features, including enhanced notifications, improved application permissions, new emoji and refined battery saving tools, as well as a truckload of much-needed bug fixes, stability improvements, and speed optimizations.
