Galaxy J7 Pie update and other news: Oreo 8.1 arrives on 2016 edition, Dec 2018 patch available for Prime variant

Galaxy J7 Oreo Update

Samsung has released a truckload of different Galaxy J7 models, all of which made this writer’s task a bit harder than he wanted it to be. But fair enough, it was interesting to check them out all in one view. Anyhow, all Galaxy J7 sets that have Android Nougat preinstalled will receive the Oreo update from Samsung. Those that come with Oreo preinstalled can gladly look forward to the upcoming Android 9 Pie update, but the wait could go all the way up to Q4 2019.

On this page, we have all software updates for these devices along with their changelogs and download links where possible, be it major OS upgrades or minor monthly security patches.

Samsung’s Galaxy J series is entitled to at least one major OS upgrade. Unless Samsung has plans to change this, the only J7 variant that is expected to receive Android 9 Pie update is the Galaxy J7 2018 variant. To put in simpler terms, all Galaxy J7 models that have Android Oreo preinstalled are eligible for the Pie update from Samsung.

Samsung One UI

Samsung will be rolling out the official Pie update to the Galaxy J7 2018, meaning there is a small chance One UI could accompany the Pie update to this device. However, no official word is available at the moment, but we won’t be surprised if it misses out on the One UI either because Samsung is no stranger to such stunts. Only time will tell.
