Galaxy J3 (2017) starts getting Android Pie update

Samsung’s Android Pie (One UI) rollout has reached the Galaxy J3 (2017), also called J3 Pro in some markets. The two-year-old smartphone is currently receiving the Pie iteration of Android in Russia and Vietnam. It was launched with Android Nougat back in June 2017.

Galaxy J3 (2017) gets Android Pie

Samsung is speeding up with its Android Pie rollout for its older budget smartphones. The Galaxy J7 DuoJ7 Pro, A8 star, and several other Samsung phones have received the update in the last couple of months. The Galaxy J3 (2017) has now joined the ever growing list.

The smartphone is receiving a new update in Russia and Vietnam with build numbers J330FXXU3CSG6 and J330GDXU3CSG7 respectively. The new firmware comes with Android Pie as well as the July 2019 security patch. While Android Pie brings tons of new features to Samsung smartphones, not all of them make the cut into every single device. How many of them made it into the Galaxy J3 (2017) remains to be seen.

The drill for upgrading your Galaxy J3 (2017) to the latest firmware is the same as ever. You should get a notification once the update becomes available for your device. You can also manually trigger the update by tapping the Download updates manually option in the Settings » Software update menu on your phone. The latest firmware is also available in our database (Russia | Vietnam) if you’re not willing to wait for the update to reach you over the air. You can download the compatible firmware and manually flash it on your phone.

Every day for the last three weeks I have been getting the notification that Android Pie is available to install. The updated downloads 100% but but every time the UPDATE FAILS at 24% during the installation process. I have tried a phone rest (not factory reset) and I also used the hidden menus to CLEAR CACHE but every time the same error occurs at 24% installation. The phone then pauses, then self reboots, and comes back on as it was prior to the update attempt. Still haven’t found a solution but any other ideas appreciated as it is doing my… Read more »

Either way glad another device makes it into the Pie update cut. Even if it comes late like this, it still helps with the longevity of the device long term (if the specs or the phone itself dont fail you, that is). Well I know of someone whom had a J3 2016 and it cant even get Android Oreo… It was funny how she had to eventually switch to a Galaxy S7 Edge 2 years after the debut of both of these devices… And now I have to see if she wants to take the risk and put a OneUI… Read more »

Why does Samsung update the J3 2017 before the J5 2017? It’s not fair! 🙁
