Verizon Galaxy J3 (2016) Android 7.0 Nougat update

Big Red is rolling out firmware version J320VVRU2BQJ1 for the Galaxy J3 (2016) on its network. It comes with the August security patch which is a bit sad. Samsung has already started rolling out the November security patch so at least it could have been bumped up to October.
