Samsung Galaxy J7 Pro is now getting the Android Pie update

The Galaxy J7 Pro has become the first budget Galaxy phone that launched before 2018 to get the Android Pie update. Samsung has released the much-awaited Pie update for the device in Russia. Since the Galaxy J7 Pro is just a Galaxy J7 (2017) variant with Samsung Pay support and an LCD display, we should hopefully see the J7 (2017) also getting Android Pie in the near future.

The Galaxy J7 Pro Pie update for Russia comes with software version J730FMXXU5CSEE and the May 2019 security patch. We don’t have details on how big the update is over the air or its changelog, but you can expect all the features and changes that Pie brought to recent budget phones like the Galaxy M20. Naturally, the new One UI interface with a Night theme will be included, along with plenty of minor improvements and changes throughout the OS.

You should be able to start downloading the Android Pie update on your Galaxy J7 Pro using the Download and install option in the Software update menu of the Settings app. Since these updates are released in stages, you may not immediately get the Pie update, in which case you should try checking for it later. Or you can download the Android Pie firmware from our database and flash it on your Galaxy J7 Pro manually if you don’t wish to wait for the over-the-air release.
