Samsung is rolling out another security update for its Galaxy J7 2017, Galaxy J5 2017, and the Galaxy J1 Mini Prime. The update is On-the-Air, so you should automatically receive a notification to install the update. If you don’t, to check for the OTA go to your Settings -> About device -> Software updates to update it manually.
Do not panic, if you don’t get one, remember such OTA updates are released region-wise. If your device hasn’t got one yet, it will surely get one. It’s just a security update so; it won’t be huge. Glad to see Samsung giving out latest security updates for its budget devices like Motorola does for its G series.
It will be available on all the three handsets and is arriving with the following build numbers:-
- Samsung Galaxy J7 2017: J730FXXU1AQG1
- Samsung Galaxy J5 2017: J530FXWU1AQF5
- Samsung Galaxy J1 Mini Prime: J106BUBU0AQG1
With the July security patch installed on the above-mentioned phones, the overall security should be enhanced to counter any new malware. Bugs or performance issues are existing in the previous build also have been fixed with this update. Keep your phone charged to 80% plus, before updating it.
We hope now the C, and A series would also get these updates soon. As Samsung is now on the roll to update its budget phones which will help the company to gain the trust of the Android community when it comes to budget handsets as Samsung isn’t the brand the Android enthusiasts go for these days.
If you own these devices, do share your experience after updating your devices.
