J7 2016 oreo that means the a series 2016 should get oreo that would make sense since its midrange but really need oreo for the s6
Someone Else, 14 Aug 2018These are budget devices we're talking about here. There's no update rule for budget devices. ... moreGood to know. I only check out flagships on androids and only buy nexus previously and pixel now, so updates have always been good to me.
DLLM, 14 Aug 2018Android oems only have to commit to 1.5 years of os update (and 3 yearÂ’s security updates) or... moreThese are budget devices we're talking about here. There's no update rule for budget devices. Those 2 years of update policy only applies for flagships. Here, Samsung is giving their budget phones two major updates while other manufacturers tend to ignore their midrange phones all together, or giving them only one major update and no security patch. Because of this, Samsung have the best support for midrangers than any other manufacturers.
Someone Else, 09 Aug 2018Ummm, isn't that a GOOD thing that a 2016 smartphone (that runs marshmallow and was updated to... moreAndroid oems only have to commit to 1.5 years of os update (and 3 yearÂ’s security updates) or something like that, thatÂ’s why a 2016 smartphone using a 2015 os gets a 2017 os in late 2018 or 2019. ItÂ’s just to fulfill its obligation. So no, itÂ’s not a good thing. Being the largest android oem out there, they are one of the worst at updating their smartphones

J7 Prime will get Oreo update by January 2019... Samsung how about the Y Variants isnt it unfair that we dont get updates tsk tsk... Those F Variants they are the only one receiving updates but here in the Philippines for Y Varianys we dont received any updates which is unfair...
Those phones should all ready be on the line for Android 9... The biggest problem Android phones currently have are the updates...
Yes. My A9 pro 2016 is getting the upgrade.
Hope itnreleases 8.0 for Samsung Note 4 also.
jai, 08 Aug 2018On max is not in the list. Is On Max considered as j7 Max because they are similar and usuall... moreYes. The On series phones are mostly available on India only. They are just J series phones with names changed. Oreo will be available for OnMax the same time as J7Max.

This will be the downfall of Samsung. The battle is on the Mid Range and if they provide updates to their phones this slow???? They will be outpaced by the likes of Huawei etc.
Galaxy J7 2016 will be my last Samsung phone that I owned. The update is freaking slow.

Samsung should look no further as to... moreUmmm, isn't that a GOOD thing that a 2016 smartphone (that runs marshmallow and was updated to nougat) will still be updated to oreo in 2019, with 2019's security patch? That's 3 years of update.
