Samsung Galaxy J7 Prime

Samsung has rolled out February Android security patch to the currently available Galaxy J7 Prime smartphone. With build number G610FDDU1AQA2, the latest security update provides bug fixes for the month of February. There are reports that the update includes few minor security enhancements but we don’t have any confirmation.

Released in September 2016, the Samsung Galaxy J7 Prime features a 5.5-inch FHD display, an Exynos 7870 processor, 3GB RAM paired with 16GB internal storage. While the rear camera is equipped with a 13 rear camera, the front-facing shooter bears an 8MP sensor.

Powered by a 3300mAh battery, the Samsung Galaxy J7 Prime ships pre-loaded with Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow. Samsung will most likely roll out Android Nougat but there is no clarity regarding the approximate date of the rollout.

Like in the past, Samsung will release updates via OTA. However, it will take few days for the update notification to hit your smartphones. Alternatively, you can manually verify the presence of the update by tapping on the Settings menu. Furthermore, you should make sure to charge the smartphone more than 70 percent before starting to download the update.
