After a long period of wait, Samsung is finally fulfilling its promise and the Android 8.1 Oreo is now being delivered to the Galaxy J5 (2017). While most of the South-Korean manufacturer smartphones have received Android 8.0 Oreo, the last year midrange smartphones are being updated straight to Android 8.1 Oreo.
This move was hinted at a Benchmark result from May. The new software update is currently being rolled out in Poland. The software goes by the J530FXXU2BRH5 label and is currently being rolled through OTA channel. Since the update is being rolled in batches, it may take several days to arrive for all Galaxy J5 (2017) smartphones.
