Samsung Galaxy J7 users in India can finally receive the Android 6.0 update.

This is definitely good news for many J7 owners, who have been waiting for several months to get their hands on Android Marshmallow while flagship Samsung phones received their update. For those who don’t know, only Galaxy J7 devices that were sold in South Korea and the United States came pre-installed with Android 6.0. The J7 handsets that were released in India and other markets came pre-installed with Android 5.1 Lollipop, which means that users had to wait for some time before they could enjoy Marshmallow’s new features.

The Galaxy J7 update started rolling out in July 21, which means that you’ll get it through over the air (OTA) connection soon. If you don’t want to wait, you can always manually check if the update is already available for your phone by going to Settings, choosing “About device”, then tapping on “Download updates manually”. If the update is available, your phone will start downloading it right away.

The Marshmallow update for the Samsung Galaxy J7 has the build number J710FXXU1APG. Downloading it will upgrade your device’s security patch to the July 1 update, which is surprising since Google had released another security patch on July 5. Still, there’s no need to worry since the July 5 update will most likely be made available to J7 owners in the following days or weeks.

Before downloading, though, you have to make sure that your phone has enough memory to accommodate the 254.24MB size of the update. You also have to make sure that you have a strong and stable internet connection (preferably Wi-Fi) and that your phone has more than 50 percent battery life. This way, you can finish downloading the Samsung Galaxy J7 Marshmallow update without any interruption and avoid bricking your phone.
