Following the release of the Android Pie update for the Galaxy J7 Pro, Samsung is now updating the Galaxy J7 (2017) with Pie. The Galaxy J7 Pro is a slightly more feature-packed Galaxy J7 (2017), so it’s not surprising that the Pie update for the two devices is coming out in close proximity. The J7 (2017)’s update is currently out in Spain (with software version J730FXXU4CSF1) and should be reaching other markets in the coming weeks.

The Android Pie update for the J7 (2017) comes with One UI 1.1 and the May 2019 security patch. You have the usual One UI features, like a Night mode, rearranged menus for easier access with one hand, navigation gestures, and various other improvements, along with the Digital Wellbeing feature that is available only on One UI 1.1. Digital Wellbeing lets users set limits on how long they use their device and apps on it to help them reduce the time they spend glued to their smartphones.

Galaxy J7 (2017) owners in Spain should be able to download the Pie update over the air. To do that, they need to open the Settings app on the device, select Software update, then tap the Download updates manually option. Major updates such as these are rolled out in stages, so they may have to try downloading it at a later time. Those who are confident enough to manually flash new firmware on their device may download the Pie firmware from our database and skip the wait for the over-the-air release.
