The Galaxy J7 was released in the first part of 2018, mainly for the Indian market. The phone will get last year’s OS from Android, which takes the form of Pie 9.0. The version number for the firmware is J720FDDU4BSG7 and 1.3 GB of free space is required for download and installation.
Galaxy J7 Duo specs
The phone has a 5.5 inch Super AMOLED display and an Exynos 7885 Octa-core processor. A Mali G71 GPU allows the device to have good performance when it comes to graphics.
The J7 Duo is further equipped with 4GB of RAM and 32 GB storage space but it does have a micros SD slot with a max value of 256 GB.
There is a rear-mounted double camera on the phone with 13 MP and a 5 MP sensor. The front-facing camera has a single 8 MP sensor to its name.
When it was launched, the J7 Duo came with Android 8.0 Oreo as standard. The phone was behind on the latest operating system when it was launched and still is. Although receiving the 9th version of Android Software, Google is almost finishing up the 10th version.
When to expect Android Pie 9.0?
The phone specifications should not require the latest Android OS, however. As Android 9.0 is more than enough to provide a quality user experience for J7 Duo owners. The software update is expected to slowly roll out in the next couple of months but there is no official release date offered by Samsung.
Expect a slower update as not all devices will receive it at once. These upgrades usually happen gradually by offering the software to phones belonging to a batch number. No matter your batch number, or your location, you can try to see if the update is available in your settings and manually install it.
