My Final say ....been running Nougat 7.1.1 since 10.20.17, and I can definitely say it brought back new life to the phone. Battery last longer, boots faster, lots of improvements in memory, storage - makes you feel like its a high-end midrange. So far, only this variant benefited from this major OS upgrade. BUT, this Nougat 7.1.1 update did not come with some features like the 'Always On display', 'Smart View', 'Secure Folders' and 'Private mode', found on the newer J7 running Nougat. 'But I do want to mention this J7 2015 -all variants - no longer has warranty. So rooting it makes a lot of sense, go for it, no worries on 'bricking' it.
Anonymous, 11 Nov 2017Still there is nothing. Possibly no nougat. But you cannot outrun the fact that there is not a... moreIt will not happen. Samsung already done any more updates for J7-2015. Those so-called 'Samsung tech support' on chat and phone support dont know any better.
Red5, 11 Nov 2017One more time .... J7 that came with 5.1.1-Lollipop, out of the box - have already been update... moreStill there is nothing. Possibly no nougat. But you cannot outrun the fact that there is not a chance. Because the ph is being still sold. And shamesung technical support are responding "you may get it". Just sayin
One more time .... J7 that came with 5.1.1-Lollipop, out of the box - have already been updated to 6.0.1 Marshmallow. Thus there is no room for Nougat.
J7 that came with 6.0.1 Marshmallow out of the box, will get update to Nougat 7.1.1, and is also the last OS update from Samsung.
This are the FACTS - check with Samsung ... Telco carriers dont develop OS - Samsung does with Google.

A round of applause for the 2nd company with the worst update policy in history(number 1 is BlackBerry nobody can beat them in bad update policy)
