Verizon starts pushing Android 7.0 Nougat update to Samsung Galaxy J3 (2016)


While many Android smartphone users are wondering when they'll receive Oreo, an even larger amount of people are still stuck on older versions of the OS. It's been more than a year since Samsung Galaxy J3 (2016) made its debut on the market, but the smartphone has already received a major Android update and is now getting a second one.

If you're the proud owner of a Verizon Galaxy J3 (2016), you'll be happy to know that the carrier has just announced an Android 7.0 Nougat update is now being rolled out.

The update contains many improvements and fixed in addition to Android Nougat. For example, Verizon confirms the update include the Blueborne security patch, along with a fix for an issue that caused Wi-Fi voice call drops.

Furthermore, Samsung included many proximity sensor performance improvements and a fix for a Samsung Messaging app issue where video messages were received with audio only. Improved Push to Talk and sound quality have been added too, and a fix for an issue that prevented ringback tones to incoming calls outside of Verizon.

Unfortunately, Samsung only added the August security patch along with the Android Nougat update. The new software version NMF26X.J320VVRU2BQJ1 for Samsung Galaxy J3 (2016) is pushed out OTA (over the air) in stages, so be patient if it doesn't show up on your phone immediately.
