Last updated: July 12th, 2018 at 13:28 UTC+02:00

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. Doing so should trigger the update if it's released in your region. The firmware is also available in our database if you are too impatient to wait for the OTA.

The new update doesn’t bring any features to the Galaxy A7 (2017) and is focused solely on improving the security and stability of the device. To know the contents of the July security patch, you can read this post.

Could the Galaxy A7 (2017) be getting its Android Pie update soon?
