Samsung releases Android Pie update for the Galaxy J5 (2017)

Samsung has released the Android Pie update to almost all the devices mentioned in the update tracker already. The Galaxy J5 (2017), also known as the Galaxy J5 Pro in some markets, is one of the last remaining devices scheduled to get the update. Fulfilling its promise, the Korean company has now released the Android Pie update to this budget device as well.

At the time of writing, the update is rolling out only in Russia, and it may take anywhere from days to weeks for it to be available in other markets and to other variants. This is the second and possibly the last Android version update for the Galaxy J5 (2017). Though Samsung took a year to push the update, it is still impressive considering this is a two-year-old budget device.

As is the case with all other Galaxy devices, the Android Pie update for the J5 comes with Samsung’s One UI. You can refer to our One UI Feature Focus series for all the major changes this update brings to the device. Along with the Android version upgrade, the latest release also bumps the J5’s security patch level to August 2019, which fixes many Android and Samsung-specific vulnerabilities as detailed in the company’s August security bulletin.

If the OTA update notification is not yet available, Galaxy J5 (2017) owners can manually check for it by tapping the Download updates manually option under Software Update in settings. If that doesn’t work and you are impatient to wait, you can consider downloading the latest firmware for your device from our database and manually flash it.

This new firmware is for J530FM not J530F.
We have to wait a little more for the J530F.

“Though Samsung took a year to push the update, it is still impressive considering this is a two-year-old budget device.”
it’s not so impressive that they completely forgot about the premium midrange A 2017, that was 1.5 years old at the time when Android Pie was released.

That’s because Samsung shouldn’t release the Galaxy A 2017 series before the Galaxy S8, as they release a new Android version when they announce a new Galaxy S lineup. Due to this decision, those devices are out of luck. :/

It’s a 2016 phone, which has the same story as the S7 and the A 2017 Series.

Until Samsung will decide to release a third major update for the flagships, the Galaxy S7 will be stuck with Oreo, unless you’re gonna install a Custom ROM.

Especially considering that they have done 90% of the work of porting One UI on the Note FE which shares the same chipset with the S7 duo and the fact that other OEMs have been putting out updates to 2016 models since they realised that 2 years of major OS updates are not tolerated anymore, Samsung looks like an absolute fool and their stance on the matter actually tells alot about them as a company and the future of the devices you are holding or the ones you consider buying.

Right now i think Samsung should really step up their game with major android updates to 3 for flagships. It’s good for low end devices, but to get the same support for low and high end is just unbearable. If this is how it is we should all get the cheapest Samsung and we’ll have the same software support as flagships. You can downvote me,this is my opinion as a Galaxy S9+ owner. I really think now that Samsung should give 3 years of major android updates and one more for security patches only.

We all agree it’s just that I don’t get what Samsung doesn’t get. It’s pointless to act like they are not listening. The race for all OEMs has started and Samsung is still on the starting line acting like they haven’t heard the race start gun shot. This is embarrassing for Samsung.
