[Update: False alarm] Android 7.0 Nougat firmware for the Galaxy J7 (2016) now available online

Update: This seems to be a false alarm, or something is currently up with Samsung’s update servers, as the firmware that has gone online for the Indian J7 fails to install on the device. An over-the-air update isn’t available either, so we would suggest holding off from trying out this firmware. We’ll let you know once the update actually starts arriving.

Original story: The long-awaited Android 7.0 Nougat firmware for the Galaxy J7 (2016) is now available to download from our online database for manual flashing. There’s a caveat, though: it’ll only work with units registered in India.

That said, we expect to have the firmware for other regions listed on our database in the near future—so be sure to check our weekly Firmware Magazine to find out when it’s available for your handset.

Android 7.0 Nougat brings a number of exciting new features to the table, including enhanced notifications, stricter application permissions and refined battery saving tools, as well as a handful of much-needed bug fixes.

Recommended: Here’s a list of all the new features that Nougat brings to your Galaxy-branded smartphone

Last week, Samsung released a near-identical update for the Galaxy J7 (2016) in Russia. The only difference was the firm started rolling it out over-the-air (OTA), meaning customers didn’t need to manually flash it onto their device.

The OTA should start making the rounds in India in the coming weeks.

It is True update but not for J7 2016
I installed the firmware and checked the kernel Ramdisk and the build.prop ..
It is Exynos7580 device (Galaxy On8)

I think that :
J710FN with dual sim is Galaxy On8
J710FN with one sim is Galaxy J7 2016
This update is for On8

when i tried to install via Odin i got error on my phone in download mode (volume down+power+home) saying secure check fail (bootloader). i thought i’ll wait till the official ota comes. in meantime i just checked the update manually and i got an update of 1030.76 MB. updating it right now

this update is for SM-J710FN (its ON8 model no in build.prop with different processor and different screen ratio. still for j7 2016 SM-J710F the rom is not available. in download mode the rom we should install is SM-J710F not sm-j710FN so understand that have a good day (i checked the build.prop its not for j7 2016. this rom is for ON8 phone)
