Samsung recently rolled out the stable Android Pie update to its Galaxy S9 family as well as the Galaxy Note 9 and now, the company has reportedly released the old Android 8.1 Oreo update to its Galaxy J7 Max. The smartphone was launched back in 2017 with Android 7.0 out-of-the-box. The Samsung Galaxy J7 Max is now getting the Android 8.1 Oreo update, instead of the latest Android operating system. The new update brings several improvements. The update version is G615FXXU2BRL3. Additionally, instead of waiting for the OTA update, the Android 8.1 Oreo firmware update is also available.

The update is being rolled out in batches, therefore, users need to be patient. One can check for the update by heading to the Settings menu > Software update > Download update manually. To recall, the Galaxy J7 Max features a 5.-inch display with a resolution of 1080 x 1920 pixels. Under the hood, it is powered by a 16nm Mediatek MT6757 Helio P20 octa-core chipset. It is backed by 3,300mAh battery. It packs a single 13-megapixel rear camera and a 13-megapixel front shooter.

Besides, Samsung is all set to launch its highly anticipated Galaxy S10 Series at an Unpacked event on February 20 in San Francisco, a few days before the MWC 2019. The South Korean giant is widely rumored to unveil as many as five distinct variants of the Galaxy S10. It is expected to house a Qualcomm Snapdragon 855 chipset and triple rear camera setup.
