The Samsung Galaxy J7 Prime is a smartphone which dates back to 2016. It launched with Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow out of the box and since then it has been updated to Android 7.0 Nougat. Earlier this month, the phone started getting the bump up to Android 8.0 Oreo in India, which was pretty exciting news for owners of this middle-range device. The phone features a 5.5-inch FHD display and relies on a Exynos 7870 processor.
But while Samsung might continue to offer security updates, the device is not really eligible for the next big update which is Android 9 Pie.
From all the Galaxy J7 models currently available in the wild, Samsung probably only has plans to update the US Galaxy J7 2018 (SM-J737). The others, starting with the J7 2017 model, will probably not get it. Unless Samsung surprises us.
Anyway, if you too own a Galaxy J7 Prime, make sure you follow the download link below and get it updated with the latest security patch available (October).
