Precisely in the month of August the dates of the update of the Samsung Galaxy J7 had been filtered in all its versions to Android 8 Oreo, and now it has been shown that they were too conservative.
Update to Android 8.1 of the Samsung Galaxy J7 (2016) in March
To give you an idea, in the filtration of the month of August you could see that the Samsung Galaxy J7 (2016) would receive the update to Android 8 in the month of March 2019, so that much has been advanced on this date .

The build of this OTA are the J710GNDXU4CRJ7 / J710GNOLB4CRJ7 / J710GNDXU4CRJ7 and its weight is more than one gig, specifically 1033.39 megabytes , so it has a considerable weight and it will be advisable to make room in the storage of Samsung’s mobile. In this way also the Galaxy J7 2016 take the jump from Android 7 Nougat, directly to the latest version of Oreo. Since they have made the jump directly to Android 8.1, obviating the version 8.0, whose new features are already included in this version.
With this update to Android 8.1 Oreo , the Samsung Experience version is also altered, until it reaches version 9.5 .
