If you live in India and own one of Samsung’s Galaxy J5 (2016) smartphones, we have good news for you because reports from all over have confirmed that the handset is indeed getting an OS upgrade to Nougat 7.1.1, a version of the Android OS which is more recent than even the one on the Galaxy S8 (Unless of course, you running the Beta builds of Android 8.0 Oreo on your S8).
Now that you know the good news, time to give you the bad news! According to SamMobile and their sources, some users are experiencing an issue after installing the update. Apparently, the phone keeps crashing on various screens. If it turns out to be true in most cases, then Samsung will either have to release a patch very soon or stop with the roll outs in the region completely. Let’s just hope that doesn’t happen because it would mean another very long and unexpected wait for Galaxy J5 (2016) owners to get the already late update.
Head over to our firmware section to find all the latest available updates for your Samsung smartphones and tablets.
