While other manufacturers tend to do more to keep the software on their Android smartphones up to date, Samsung has a relatively poor reputation in that department. Therefore, this latest report will come as a pleasant surprise for Samsung users not using the company’s flagship devices. The Samsung Galaxy J7 Pro, which was launched over a year ago in July 2017, is reportedly receiving a software update bringing it to Android 8.1 Oreo.

The phone was launched running on Android Nougat last year, and has been on the now two-generations-old version of Android since then. While smartphone makers would typically be planning updates to Android 9 Pie at this stage, a handful of older and popular devices from manufacturers are receiving updates to Android Oreo. According to Sammobile, the update is being delivered as an OTA, and features the September 2018 Android security patch. Also Read - Samsung Galaxy A02 specifications spotted online

The Samsung Galaxy J7 Pro is among the company’s more popular devices in the country, as part of its affordable J-series. Last month, Motorola similarly rolled out an Android 8.1 Oreo update for its Moto G5S Plus, and is also set to bring the same to the Moto G5 and Moto G5 Plus this month. This suggests that many popular mid-range devices from last year are likely to receive updates, but not to the latest version of Android.
