It is officially written on the Samsung Members Romania page! J7 2016 will receive Oreo 8.0 by 28.02.2019 with Galaxy Tab Active2 and J7 2017 will receive until 31.01.2019 and J5 2017 will receive until 31.12.2018! I was sure to be upgraded J7 2016 to Oreo was impossible to stay with only 7.0 !!!
I just received a software update July 28 2018, size 73.18 mb
version J710FODD5BRG5. Did anyone update this patch? any reviews on performance?
Whoami, 28 Jul 2018Are there different J7 (2016) versions in India? Some time back I received a ~238 MB updat... moreIn Est Europe no update from April. Last security patch still 1 March 2018! No VoLTE No Wi Fi call no S- bike Mode
Whoami, 28 Jul 2018Are there different J7 (2016) versions in India? Some time back I received a ~238 MB updat... moreI never even got some updates that people are mentioning here. So I guess that it all depends on your country/region, and what carrier pushes out.
Are there different J7 (2016) versions in India?
Some time back I received a ~238 MB update.
A few weeks back, a 78 MB update. Jio/VoLTE stopped working, but was fixed on new network search!
Was NEVER offered any 55 MB update that people have been talking about!
Now today a new 73 MB update is offered, but am worried about any Jio/VoLTE implications!
Anyone else ?
Chris22, 26 Jul 2018Somewhere is a mistake! It is not possible for the J5 2017 to receive its first update at Oreo... moreThere's no mistake. Oreo update is not for J5 2017, but it's for on5 2016 which is a variant of J5 Prime, with 32gb storage & 3gb RAM. Of course, it is late, that's why they mentioned the word POSTPONE.
mdtrpa, 26 Jul 2018The heading starts with "SAMSUNG POSTPONES OREO UPDATE..." J7 2016 is nowhere in the list, ... moreSomewhere is a mistake! It is not possible for the J5 2017 to receive its first update at Oreo and only on December 18 to receive it and J7 2017 is very late! Something is wrong here !!
Chris22, 26 Jul 2018J7 2017 gets update to Oreo just in December? I think this is a mistake, it can not be! well l... moreThe heading starts with "SAMSUNG POSTPONES OREO UPDATE..."
J7 2016 is nowhere in the list, for Oreo update.
J7 2017 Oreo update scheduled in December'18.
mdtrpa, 26 Jul 2018Just in... https://m.gsmarena.com/samsung_postpones_oreo_update_to_8_galaxy_phones_until_de... moreJ7 2017 gets update to Oreo just in December? I think this is a mistake, it can not be! well last year J7 2016 received the update to 7.0 Nougat in Europe at the beginning of October and J5 2016 at the end of November early December and jumped directly to 7.1.1. maybe J7 2016 to receive it by the end of December! J7 2017 must now receive it by October
This concludes, J7 2016 will never be updated to Oreo.
Anonymous, 26 Jul 2018You guys are too funny thinking we will get oreo I have already bought the A5 2017 and I have Oreo on it from the factory but I still have the J7 2016 that looks impeccably with the original flip samsung pouch. I think it deserves J7 2016 Oreo
Chris22, 26 Jul 2018It's too late in January 2019! If it does not get its update to Android 8.0 until December 31,... morethis is how Samsung works late with the upgrades but if you think about it even the s7 just got Oreo just a few weeks ago and that phone was a flagship
the camera quality decreased with Nougat update
now i am using the free" Open Camera" app from Play Store
for crisp clear pics and video
waiting for a Galaxy J9 release
alxx, 25 Jul 2018J7 2016 WILL GET ANDROID 8.0.1 OREO somewhere around January 2019 according to Samsung Members... moreIt's too late in January 2019! If it does not get its update to Android 8.0 until December 31, 2018, I do not think it gets it anymore! In January, I do not think Samsung is up to date with Oreo updates, then I have to prepare for Android 9.0 update for the S9 and S8 models. The end date is that it is until the end of 2018. If this date is exceeded, I do not think it gets anymore!
SD652, 25 Jul 2018Me too, I don't care much about Android updates and performance and stability matters the most... moreYes, it's possible to go back to Marshmallow. It's easier compared to other brand devices, using the Odin Tool on PC. Just Google the term...
"J7 2016 downgrade"
mdtrpa, 25 Jul 2018Of course, that was a joke. "Mo" is so over-confident about October update of Android Oreo ... moreMe too, I don't care much about Android updates and performance and stability matters the most to me. But my phone is running 7.0. I wonder if it's still possible to go back to marshmallow?
J7 2016 WILL GET ANDROID 8.0.1 OREO somewhere around January 2019 according to Samsung Members so you guys just have to be patient
SD652, 25 Jul 2018Was that a joke?Of course, that was a joke.
"Mo" is so over-confident about October update of Android Oreo 8, he should be knowing about the update of Android Pistachio 9.
By the way, I am very satisfied with performance and stability of J7 2016 with Android Marshmallow. I know updates provide features & security, but sacrifices performance and stability. If I wanna update, why stay with Nougat 7.0 not even 7.1.2. I would directly jump to Pistachio 9. Hahaha.
