Samsung has released a new software update to the aging Galaxy J7 (2017). The smartphone was launched in mid-2017, and it is amazing to see that the company is still offering software support to such an old smartphone. The new update brings a newer security patch to the smartphone.

The new software update for the Galaxy J7 (2017) includes the March 2021 security patch and it is now available in Bangladesh, Nepal, and Sri Lanka. The latest software comes with firmware version J730FXWS8CUD1. Apart from Google’s own patches, the update brings a total of 19 fixes from Samsung to fix various privacy and security-related issues. It might also contain some general bug fixes and device stability improvements.

If you are a Galaxy J7 (2017) user in any of the countries mentioned above, you can check for the update manually by navigating to Settings » Software update and tapping on Download and install. If you don’t want to wait for the OTA update to hit your smartphone, you can download the entire firmware image from our firmware database and flash it manually.

The Galaxy J7 (2017) was launched with Android 7.0 on board, but it received the Android 8.1 update in mid-2018. Samsung then updated the smartphone to Android 9 Pie in mid-2019. Earlier today, the South Korean firm released the April 2021 security patch to the Galaxy J5 (2017).
