Samsung Galaxy J8 was launched with Android Oreo out of the box. The device is powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 450 SoC along with 4GB of RAM and 64 GB of internal storage. Galaxy J8 sports a dual rear camera set up featuring a 16-megapixel primary sensor and a 5-megapixel secondary sensor. Galaxy J8 is now selling in the country at a price tag of Rs. 13,990.

The update comes in at 1196MB in size, so you’ll have to make sure you have at least 1.5 GB free space in your phone before you start updating. We’ll also recommend you to charge your device to at least 75% before updating to avoid any unexpected shutdowns. The Android Pie update for Indian Galaxy J8 also comes with the April 2019 Android Security Patch.
The update is available via OTA( Over the Air) and will show up automatically on your device, but you can check for it manually as well by going into Settings > Software Update > Download Updates Manually.
