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.
