Android 7.0 Nougat update now arriving on the Galaxy J7 (2016) in India

Samsung is now pushing out the Android 7.0 Nougat update for the Galaxy J7 (2016) in India. The upgrade, which weighs in at 1.03GB, transports compatibility for a number of new features, including enhanced notifications and refined battery saving tools, as well as Samsung’s vibrant Experience user interface.

This news comes less than 24-hours after we reported that the firmware was available to download from our comprehensive online database; however, it turns out that wasn’t the case. For some reason, the files wouldn’t install on the Indian—or any other—variant of the handset.

Some readers believe it’s because the firmware was, instead, intended for the Galaxy On8, which launched in India last year.

We’re in the process of tracking down the correct firmware and will upload it to our database as soon as we have it. In the meantime, feel free to check to see if the over-the-air update is available for your Galaxy J7 (2016) by heading into Settings, tapping About Device, then selecting Download Updates Manually.

Still no update to the 7.0 Nougat android update here in Sri Lanka. I mean come on, India gets it and Sri Lanka just below it doesn’t get it at the same time…. I’ve been waiting for the update for weeks now. Checking the page also and all it updates is other countries.
