At the time when the latest Android 9 Pie OS update roll-out is taking over for many manufacturers, Samsung is still struggling to push Android Oreo for its smartphones. The company, after a long delay, is now reportedly pushing out the Android 8.1 Oreo for its Galaxy On7, which is also called the Galaxy J7 Prime in some markets.

The OTA update for Samsung’s Galaxy On7/ Galaxy J7 Prime carries the software version G610LKLU1CRK8. The Samsung Galaxy On7 Pro, also known as J7 Prime 2 is receiving the same software update with version number G611KKKU1BRK6, reports TheAndroidSoul. It is said to bring features such as picture-in-picture, notification dots, Autofill, revamped notifications center, new settings app, notification snooze option and more for the Galaxy On7 devices.

The update is currently being rolled out to  South Korean users, but it shouldn’t be long before other regions start getting it. The update also brings the latest Android security patch for the month of November 2018. You can also check its availability on your device by going to Settings > Software updates. It is recommended to back up your data before proceeding with the update.

Samsung launched the Galaxy On7 smartphone in India in October 2015, and it even brought the Pro version of the same phone in December. The device was launched with Android 5.1 lollipop in the market and it has now jumped to Android 8.1 Oreo. The Samsung Galaxy On7 and On7 Pro were launched at a price of Rs. 8,490 and Rs 11,190 respectively and comes with 3GB of RAM and 32GB storage.
