Samsung Galaxy J7 Max, Galaxy On Max Get Android 8.1 Oreo Update in India: Report

Samsung Galaxy J7 Max, On Max get new UI with latest update

Highlights
  • Samsung Galaxy J7 Max, On Max get December security patch
  • The update brings version Android Oreo for users in India
  • Galaxy J7 Max update size is 1169.27MB

Samsung is reportedly rolling out Android 8.1 Oreo update for the Galaxy J7 Max and Galaxy On Max smartphones in India. The update brings along the December security patch, and bumps firmware version to G615FXXU2BRL3 and G615FUDDU2BRL3 for the Galaxy J7 Max and Galaxy On Max respectively. The size of the update is at 1169.27MB, and it brings along the Samsung Experience version 9.5 skin on top. To recall, the Samsung Galaxy J7 Max and the Samsung Galaxy On Max were both launched in 2017, and the former was made available offline, while the latter was made available online.

Sammobile has shared a screenshot of the update arriving on the Galaxy J7 Max, and it shows the size of the update is rather large - at 1169.27MB. We recommend all users to update under a strong Wi-Fi connection and while the phone is on charge. Furthermore, we recommend users to back up their data before they begin the installation process. The update is rolling out via OTA in stages, so expect it to arrive in the next two-three days, if it hasn't already popped up on your notification screen.

To check manually, head to Settings menu and look for the Software Update option, then select Download Updates Manually. The update, as mentioned, brings the December security patch, along with other new features like a new UI. The report states that the update size for the Samsung Galaxy On Max is 1189.76MB.

To recall, both the smartphones were launched with Android Nougat out-of-the-box, and this is the first major upgrade in two years. This only goes to show Samsung's lack of software commitment for its budget devices, and we hope that this changes with the new Galaxy M series set to launch next week. The new series is set to replace the Galaxy J and Galaxy On series, and two smartphones expected to launch in India are Galaxy M10 and Galaxy M20.
