It was June this year, when the first-gen Samsung Galaxy J7 with Android Nougat on board was spotted on the website of WiFi Alliance. Over a couple of months have passed, and the update is yet to roll out.
Now, the device has once again appeared on the agency's website, with the listing revealing Android 7.0 this time as well.
