Samsung Galaxy J7: Preparing to Update to a New Operating System Build
If you have a Samsung Galaxy J7 and you’re not from a country that already has received the update, you should wait a bit, since it will roll out in phases. Keep in mind to have at least 60% battery to avoid any failure if your phone turns off. Download the update via WiFi and not mobile data.
All you can do except for waiting is to monitor if there is any update available for your device. Go to Settings -> About Phone -> System Updates.
Don’t forget to back-up your Apps and messages, contacts and any other important thing that might be lost in the process of updating.
The Samsung Galaxy J series will soon receive updates with the Android Nougat 7.1.1 in Latin America, and then India, with J7 Prime already getting the Nougat 7.1.1 update.
