Two weeks ago, the original Samsung Galaxy J7, which was released in 2015, appeared on Wi-Fi Alliance with Android 7.0 Nougat on board, prompting suggestions that the now two-year-old handset will be receiving the update very soon.
At the time, the Galaxy J7 2015 appeared in three different variants with model numbers SM-J701M, SM-J701MT and SM-J701M/DS, which are mainly Latin America and South American variants of the phone. Now, in a new listing on the same platform, a different variant of the phone has been cleared with Nougat running the show, adding more weight to the speculations that the OS will be rolling out really soon.
This time, the original Samsung Galaxy J7 with model number SM-J701F has been confirmed to be set to receive the Nougat treat in the coming days. Just like the previous listing, this is the only detail we can gather from the listing, but history tells that it won’t be long before the phone gets the OTA update to the new OS.
The first Samsung Galaxy J7 was released in June 2015 and given that this is a budget phone, it should come as a blessing in disguise that Sammy has plans to update its software to the latest version. The update will also be rolled out to the phone’s successor, the Galaxy J7 2016, but there’s no word on whether the Galaxy J5 2015 will be joining its counterpart in receiving this OS.
Of course, we’ll monitor the situation and update you on any development regarding the same – and other phones that we’ll be receiving the Nougat treat. Stay tuned.
