Finally got Nougate update - 7.1.1. on my J700T1. Runs a bit quicker, less memory. New device maintenance show 7.5 Gb available storage space, and 519 available RAM - after running 1-click button. Shows a score of 100, EXCELLENT! Samsung Experience ver 8.5, Security patch level date = August.1,2017.
Since warranty is over anyway - Now time to root it to remove them dang bloatwares from MetroPCS.
Aryan342, 06 Sep 2017yes me too waiting for my j700f.....still no update......j7 2016 got today....but nothing for ... moreWiFi Alliance already certified the J700T and J700P. I think its a matter of time now ... though I do noticed that these 2 models, even under the J7 2015 were made in 2016. Could it be that Samsung only considers phones made in 2016 to get Nougat?
Usman Shaikh, 27 Aug 2017But I have a j700f so when will nougat spotted get me ?please give me dateyes me too waiting for my j700f.....still no update......j7 2016 got today....but nothing for 2015 edition
Upcoming Nougat update for the original J7 will be a seamless update IF your J7 already runs the marshmallow OS 'out of the box'. Simply put, this J7 release was made in 2016 with the 2Gb of RAM running Samsung Octo-core cpu @ 1.5 Ghz with NFC - if you dont have this model, then think again if you want to do the update. What they tested are J7's with this min specs, dont think they tested J7 manufactured in 2015.
Grubba, 27 Aug 2017Isn't this just typical of Samsung playing Slowmo' once again.It is better to be slow and careful.. The last thing you would want is an update that broke your phone.. For example the "king" of updates Apple with their deadly incremental 10.2.1, 10.3, 10.3.1, 10.3.2, 10.3.3 updates LOL
Anonymous, 27 Aug 2017I'm having Lumia 535, J7 2016 and iPhone 7 Plus. J7 2016 is great but no updates. Samsung doesn't make OS updates a priority.

optxredhawk, 26 Aug 2017I am having Moto z2 play & iPhone 7 plus.Indeed very good phones. But Samsung in 2017 have devices like J, A S and the Note 8 where for the first time all of them are great devices.
VasiliS7edge, 26 Aug 2017What phone you have? I am having Moto z2 play & iPhone 7 plus.
Anonymous, 26 Aug 2017Quite sweeping with that one, eh? Guess it's easier than using your brain and not commenting.Lol. He so deserved that.
punmeisterone, 26 Aug 2017From what I see this is the T-mobile variant.Yep - most likely it is actually - its refer to as the SM-J700T1, and does exist indeed. It is marketed under TMobile / MetroPCS combo flavor which was released last May of 2016.
Look it up as SM-J700T1. I believe it is a 'stop-gap' or a bridge between the 2015 model and the 2016 models.
SM-J700T1 is a 2Gb RAM offering instead of 1.5 of the 2015 model. It offers also a 3000mAh battery, NFC and OS version 6.0.1 Marshmallow out of the box.
Powered by Samsung EXYNOS 7580 Octo-core @ 1.5 Ghz chipset.
- GPU chipset: ARM Mali-T720. Resolution @ 720x1280.
- Fingerprint - on samsung release key.
Lastly the Graphics API = OpenGL ES 3.1 ..... which I am excited to hear that it meets Nougat update requirement.
