Galaxy J7 Duo update introduces AR Emoji to Samsung’s budget lineup

Samsung has been bringing many camera features from its newest flagships to mid-range devices and existing flagship phones in recent months. Devices like the Galaxy A8 Star and Galaxy S8 were updated with the AR Emoji camera mode, and the feature has now come to Samsung’s budget lineup. The Galaxy J7 Duo seems to be the first J series phone to be getting AR Emoji support, although it remains to be seen if it will make its way to other existing Galaxy J smartphones.

New Galaxy J7 Duo update also includes November 2018 security patch

The Galaxy J7 Duo should get a basic version of AR Emoji like other devices, which means it will not work in real time and, therefore, not support the Disney AR Emojis. The J7 Duo is also the third Galaxy device to have been updated with next month’s patch ahead of schedule, following the Galaxy J7 Prime and the Galaxy Tab 2 Active. The update comes with software version J720FDDU3ARJ3 and is a 480 MB download over the air.

To update your Galaxy J7 Duo, open the phone’s Settings app, tap Software update, then select the Download updates manually option. You can also grab the latest firmware from our database and install it on your phone using your desktop computer or laptop.
