will j7 prime also get the update

CS, 10 May 2019WTF are you smoking? On7 prime was released in Jan 2018. I am smoking plain old air.

Read the second line of the article.

"The On7 Prime was launched in the subcontinent back in January of 2018, but it's actually known elsewhere as the Galaxy J7 Prime, and was first released in September 2016."

THE-TRUTH-REVEALER, 10 May 2019Wow amazing if this has been done intentionally. But I know... moreWTF are you smoking? On7 prime was released in Jan 2018.

Wow amazing if this has been done intentionally. But I know folks with S7 and Edge who don’t have Pie yet...so it makes me doubt the intentions behind this.

Anyway I am happy for the On7 Prime users. Their device has been given a new lease of life, especially those who purchased it in 2016 and are still using it.

MrGrumpy, 09 May 2019Spot on K9, this is nothing more than a cynical marketing e... moreMrGrumpy. Haha. I love your reference to the insect house. Couldn't have said it better. Thanks.
K9.

This is why I respect Samsung, Huawei only really cares about their flagships.

DaDo77, 09 May 2019wooooow Samsung is the best!!!!!Man its just one phone and its just accident because this phone is from 2018 the original J7 have different code name but it worked somehow.
S7 and S7 edge users dont have PIE. Same goes for S6 and S6 edge users.

unknownymous, 09 May 2019so they can upgrade the On7 Prime with Pie, but not the S7/... moreThen you have to swap for J7. You get better android device :-)

karoko, 09 May 2019And my LG G7 is still stick with Oreo. wt fMan thats LG.
LG=Life Gone,
DEAE
Which stands for = Dont Expect Anything Else.

so since this is also Exynos 7870, same as J7 2017, there should be an android 9 pie for A-line 2017 phones, which i got A3 2017 almost same specs as the mentioned phone, maybe we'd get the 9.0 too, hopefully

Anonymous, 09 May 2019how do we do that flashing Download the SM-G611F Pie firmware
Download Odin 3B Patched
Backup your data*
Open Odin
Put phone in Download Mode
Add AP, BL and CP (CSC is optional, try to get the same CSC you had in your phone. Then, flash the HOME_CEC file) in their respective fields.
Plug your phone.
Hit Start.
Wait
Enjoy

* Your phone may factory reset when you hit Start so do this as a precaution

Furiounx, 09 May 2019Are you serious. -_- I literally just ordered an LG G6 and ... moreG6 will be much better anyways, but great to see at least one phone being supported that far.

K9, 09 May 2019Sorry to spoil your optimism n9w, but Samsung are in an al... moreThey're at number two. They aren't grovelling

Shanti Dope, 09 May 2019And everyone still wonders why Samsung is hailed as the iPh... moreDo people really say that? I find that unlikely, especially because the phones are quite opposite to each other

So all exynos 7870 phones are compatible with android pie now Samsung should update all of them which is quite a lot of phones using this processor in Samsung phones even from 2016

If the s7 doesn't revise the update than this is poor even though it is much more powerful and compatible that's what happened to the s6 the a8 2016 got oreo same chip and s6 never

K9, 09 May 2019Sorry to spoil your optimism n9w, but Samsung are in an al... moreSpot on K9, this is nothing more than a cynical marketing exercise for Samsung to grab a piece of the Indian smartphone market given that their sales are in freefall everywhere else.

Probably outsourced the upgrade job to a local team in Bangalore meaning it'll be badly written, sub-optimal and riddled with more bugs than the insect house at London Zoo.

DaDo77, 09 May 2019wooooow Samsung is the best!!!!!Sorry to spoil your optimism n9w, but Samsung are in an all out push to grovel to the Indian phone market, in the hope of establishing a number one slot in the country.
