Galaxy J7 (2016) now receiving Android 7.0 Nougat update
Samsung has at long last started rolling out the much-anticipated Android 7.0 update for the Galaxy J7 (2016) in Russia. The upgrade transports all of the features you’d expect to find baked into Nougat, as well as the security patches included in this month’s maintenance release.
For those unaware, Android 7.0 bundles a slew of neat new features, including enhanced notifications, stricter application permissions, new emoji and refined battery saving tools, in addition to a plethora of much-needed bug fixes, stability improvements, and speed optimizations.
From what we can tell, the release hasn’t reached all variants of the Galaxy J7 (2016) in Russia, which resulted in us drawing the conclusion that it’s making the rounds in stages—and if that turns out to be the case, it could take anywhere from two-to-four weeks to reach your handset.
If you’d like to see if the update is ready for your Galaxy J7 (2016), head into Settings » About Device » Download Updates Manually. You don’t need to, though. You can always wait until you receive a push notification prompting you to download and install the over-the-air upgrade.
