Software upgrades remain a tricky topic for Android smartphone users. Above all if we look at Samsung and its update policy we rarely see a update quickly reaching low-end smartphones. An example of this is the Samsung Galaxy J7 (2016).
This is the world's largest manufacturer of smartphones and mobile devices is far from the most up-to-date manufacturer of their devices. Something that can go unnoticed to a good part of consumers but antagonizes others.

That is, it becomes difficult to have the latest version of the operating system on our Android smartphone, especially if it is not a high end. In that sense we are still looking at the update for Android Oreo, the 8th version of the system.
Although there is already a newer version, Android Pie 9.0, several users are waiting for the previous version, released in 2017. Among them are users of Samsung Galaxy J7 (2016).
Samsung Galaxy J7 (2016) will receive Android Oreo
It should also be noted that Samsung is not the only case, instead being the most famous example of an equally mediocre panorama. We have been reinforcing and paying more attention to this, but the distribution numbers of versions of Google's operating system still show considerable fragmentation. That is, the latest versions are far from the most common. It should also be noted that relatively recently, high-end and mid-range equipment has been updated. Finally, as usual, are the incoming smartphones.
Even before Android Pie starts reaching consumers, we'll have to wait a few more months. This until Android Oreo comes to this Samsung Galaxy J7 (2016). It is certain that the update will be distributed by South Korean technology, is left to know when.
However and despite the wait, this is good news for Samsung Galaxy J7 (2016) users. Note that, as a rule, low-end devices (and even mid-range devices) are limited to one major system upgrade.
Android Oreo will begin shipping in December 2018
If the Samsung Galaxy J7 (2016) effectively receives Android Oreo would be a sign of change within the brand. I recall that this device was released with Android Marshmallow (6.0). Then having received Nougat (7.0) about a year ago.
Due to the growing concern and attention given to system upgrades, South Korean technology will bring news to this terminal from December. This is the information provided by the Turkish branch of Asian technology.
In short, while December is postponed to January or February 2019, it is still good news. A late update is always better than a nonexistent update. That is, better late than never, right?
