Samsung rolling out July 2018 security update to the Galaxy A7 (2017)
Samsung started rolling out the Android 8.0 Oreo update to the Galaxy A7 (2017) in April. It’s a major OS update which brings a long list of new features and UI changes. Even before the dust settles down, Samsung has now released the July security patch to the Galaxy A7 (2017) in Iraq, Tunisia, Turkey, Algeria, and many other regions.
The update bumps the Galaxy A7’s build number to A720FXXU3CRF3. Samsung started pushing out the update just a few days back, so it may not be available to all the eligible devices at once. Availability may vary depending on the region and carriers.
No new features
If you haven’t received the OTA update yet, you can manually check the update availability by going into the Settings app on your phone and tapping the Download updates manually option under the Software update section.
