Samsung’s famous mid-range J-series steered the company to ramp up its market share in countries like India and Latin America, and now as per the company has promised, the Galaxy J7 2015 and Galaxy J7 2016 will soon get the Android Nougat update as well.

The device just received WiFi Alliance certification recently, mentioning the device running on Android Nougat. All the models will be shortly updated to the not so new Nougat.

Which is not so astonishing that we already have Android Oreo now, even though it’s just released. However, it’s better late than getting stuck with the same Android version forever. So, we are not complaining here. Just don’t expect that all Galaxy J7 2015 models would receive the update.

The new update will bring all the touted Android Nougat features such as Multi-window, dual account support in messaging apps as well as Samsung pay to the table. The Nougat update will make these devices more user-friendly and smoother to operate. Following is the list of all possible models expected to receive the much awaited Android Nougat.

  • Galaxy J7 (2016) SM-J710F
  • Galaxy J7 (2016) (KT) SM-J710K
  • Galaxy J7 (2016) SM-J710MN
  • Galaxy J7 Duos SM-J7008
  • Galaxy J7 (T-Mobile) SM-J700T
  • Galaxy J7 SM-J700F
  • Galaxy J7 SM-J700H
  • Galaxy J7 SM-J700M
  • Some other models too but we are not sure cause we were not able to find them in Wi-fi certification database.
