We’ve had mixed reports about the release date of Android 8.0 Oreo update for the 2017 Samsung Galaxy J3, with one from the recent past pointing to August 31st as the expected Oreo release date. However, this report was rather specific to the Turkish market, which, from the recent past, we know has been among the last markets to get Oreo updates.
This has indeed been confirmed by reports surfacing from Europe’s Russia and the United Arab Emirates, where users of the Galaxy J3 2017 say they are receiving Android 8.0 Oreo as part of the latest update that also installs the June 2018 security patch.
Folks in Europe can look forward to an update with software version J330FXXU3BGH1 while in the UAE, the update has software version J330FXWU3BRG3. The update is rolling out over the air, meaning it will take some days before it shows up on your Galaxy J3 2017 unit.
You can either wait or keep trying your luck via the Settings > Software update menu and if the update is available, you can download it manually.
