Galaxy J7 Max January 2018 security patch released in India

The January 2018 security patch was detailed by Samsung last week and the company has kicked things off by rolling out the latest security maintenance release to its mid-range handsets first. Samsung has now released it for the Galaxy J7 Max in India.

The Galaxy J7 Max is a mid-range handset that was launched in India about seven months ago. It came with Android 7.0 Nougat out of the box and it’s still on that iteration of Google’s mobile operating system. Samsung hasn’t even released Oreo for its flagship smartphones yet so it’s unclear when Android 8.0 will trickle down to devices like the Galaxy J7 Max.

The Galaxy J7 Max has a 5.7-inch Full HD TFT display with an octa-core MediaTek Helio P20 (MT6757V) processor coupled with 4GB of RAM and 32GB of internal storage. The handset features a 13-megapixel rear camera and a 13-megapixel shooter on the front.

It also has a fingerprint sensor as well as support for Samsung Pay Mini. All of this is packaged inside a metal unibody frame with a 3,300mAh battery keeping the lights on.

Samsung is now rolling out firmware version G615FUDDU1AQL4 for the Galaxy J7 Max in India. It’s a minor update which just adds the January 2018 security patch. The update is rolling out over-the-air. Galaxy J7 Max users can download the file from our firmware section as well.
