Samsung Galaxy J7 Prime Update to Android 7.0 Nougat Nears Release

Samsung Galaxy J7 Prime Android 7.0 Nougat

Samsung Galaxy J7 Prime was unveiled in September 2016 with Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow and as it stands, the phone is about to get an update to Android 7.0 Nougat OS.

The Galaxy J7 Prime has just made a stop at benchmarking platform GFXBench with Nougat running the show, suggesting that it’s weeks away from receiving the OTA update to the new OS. Usually, Samsung releases one major Android OS upgrade to its budget or rather midrange Galaxy J series handsets and since the J7 Prime has been around for close to a year now, it makes sense that the company is working on a new update for the phone.

Also known as Samsung Galaxy On Nxt, the Galaxy J7 Prime ships with a 5.5-inch PLS TFT display screen with a 1080p resolution and Gorilla Glass technology (market dependent). Under the hood is an Exynos 7870 SoC mated with 3GB RAM and either 16GB or 32GB of internal storage. The back camera gas a 13MP lens while the front has an 8MP lens, both with an aperture of f/1.9.

The battery capacity on board is a decent 3000mAh unit that is charged via a microUSB port. The phone also supports fingerprint authentication via a front-mounted sensor.

This appearance on GFXBench only confirms that Samsung Galaxy J7 Prime is being tested for Android 7.0 Nougat, but it doesn’t give us any specific date as to when the OS will be made official. But based on previous cases, the OS should be released somewhere towards the end of this month or in August. We’ll update you when this happens. Stay tuned.
