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

Home / News / [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.

I just updated my samsung j7 2016 SM-J710GN yesterday night and found out today that it have some glitches/problem; like forced-closing of apps especially “Google”, it always telling that it has stopped running even I’m not opening it. It is also a bit “laggy” when i have a few apps running.. 🙁
