Samsung has started hitting Galaxy J7 with Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow Update / Upgrade in India

Today (03 – Aug – 2016) when I awoke in the morning, I unlocked my Samsung Galaxy j7 as usual to check new notifications & surprisingly i found the new update / upgrade pop up message on the screen in the notifications. The update / upgrade was of 824.77 MB which is quit too heavy & obviously it is because of whole new OS update / upgrade from Android L to Android M.

My phone is so smart that it has downloaded the whole update / upgrade for me silently in the night when i was sleeping. So i just tapped install and it started updating / upgrading after a restart and the same update / upgrade screen came up as usual.

What’s New !

  • OS upgrade – Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow.
  • The new TouchWiz provides enhanced usability and an updated visual design.
  • Advanced power saving mode restricts background data and extends battery life.
  • Settings for the following have been reset: Themes, Email, Icon / Widget.
  • and much more …

The screen appeared just after the update / upgrade was quite new completely and the screenshot is given below and i have not seen such screen before. It the same screen saying “Android is upgrading…”


Sorry for the low quality picture, I have taken it from another mobile.
