After releasing Android Nougat to its flagship phones earlier in the year, Samsung commenced rolling out the update to its mid-range A series couple of months ago and now, the company is set to expand it to the lower-end models J series.

The 2016-series Galaxy J7(SM-700) has been spotted on Wi-Fi Alliance certification agency website and what's interesting is that the device, which came with Android Marshmallow out-of-the-box, now features Android Nougat OS, hinting Samsung will release the software update to the public soon.
