The Galaxy J7 Prime is Already Receiving the August Security Update

9 August, 2017 Samsung Updates

Although Google Nexus and Pixel devices have mostly been updated to the latest security patch for the month of August already, Samsung smartphones and tablets are not exactly known for getting fast updates from the OEM, especially when it comes to the company's low-mid range devices. However, that stereotypical thought process doesn't seem to apply anymore as Samsung has now released the August SMR for the mid-range Galaxy J7 Prime in a number of regions.

It is quite astonishing to see the Galaxy S8 and the Galaxy S8 Plus still being stuck with the July security update, while the J7 Prime is being updated to the latest patch. Also to be noted is the fact that Samsung may have released the update even before Google this month as some users had received the August security patch as early as August 1. In addition to all the patches and fixes that Google has built into the update, Samsung has also added a dozen patches and fixes of its own.

Head over to our firmware section to find all the latest available updates for your Samsung smartphones and tablets.
