    Galaxy J3 (2016) owners on AT&T are receiving a new firmware update which brings Android 7.1.1 Nougat for their handset. The carrier has started rolling out the Galaxy J3 (2016) Android 7.1.1 Nougat update now. The August security patch and the Blueborne vulnerability fix are also included in this release.

    It's a pretty hefty update at 1GB so users should ensure that they're connected to a good Wi-Fi network before downloading. They also need to make sure that there's ample juice in the device's battery before they begin the installation process.

    AT&T is now rolling out the Galaxy J3 (2016) Android 7.1.1 Nougat update over-the-air. Those who own the handset on its network will get an over-the-air update notification soon if they haven't already.
