Samsung Galaxy J5 (2017) may be updated directly to Android 8.1 Oreo
Since Samsung never says anything about the updates it plans to deliver to any of its entry-level and mid-range handsets, the only information we sometimes get is through collateral channels. GFXBench and its database is one of the channels that has offered us reliable info in the past.
The Galaxy J5 (2017), also known as Samsung SM-J530, was recently spotted at GFXBench with Android 8.1.0 Oreo on board. It's not unusual for Samsung to sometimes provide users with a much newer Android update, and the Galaxy J5 (2017) might be followed by other handsets as we're getting closer to the Android P market release.
Unfortunately, we doubt there will be many mid-range smartphones launched last year that Samsung will update to Android P, considering many haven't received Oreo yet.
