Samsung appears to be testing Android 7.0 for the Galaxy J7 Prime

Samsung had launched the Galaxy J7 Prime last year with a metal body, fingerprint sensor, 2.5D glass covering, and features like S Secure and S Battery Planning. It was launched with Android 6.0 (Marshmallow) out of the box, and the company seems to be testing Android 7.0 for the lower mid-range smartphone.

We’ve spotted a GFXBench entry for the Galaxy J7 Prime (SM-G610) running Android 7.0 (Android Samsung Edition), which makes us believe that Samsung has started testing the Nougat update for the phone. We’re not sure whether Samsung will bring a newer user interface with the update, but we hope Samsung released Android 7.0 for the Galaxy J7 Prime before Google releases Android 8.0.

The Galaxy J7 Prime was launched in India last year. It features a 5.5-inch 1080p TFT display, a 13-megapixel rear-facing camera, and a 5-megapixel front-facing camera. Both cameras feature f/1.9 aperture. It is equipped with an octa-core Exynos 7870 processor, 3GB RAM, 16GB internal storage, a microSD card slot, and a 3,300 mAh battery.
