Nokia 3, Samsung Galaxy J7 Pro receive Android Pie update, May 2019 security patch
  • ​Samsung Galaxy J7 Pro starts receiving Android Pie update.
  • It brings along Samsung’s OneUI and May 2019 security patch.

Samsung has been upgrading its older phones with Android Pie-based OneUI, and now it has rolled out the software update to yet another old device, the Samsung Galaxy J7 Pro(₹ 16500 at amazon). The handset is probably the oldest Samsung phone to get the latest Android software. The update has been rolled out for Galaxy J7 Pro phones in Russia, and it comes with software version J730FMXXU5CSEE and the May security patch, a media report said.


Although there aren’t any details on how big the update is over the air or its changelog, it is expected that the phones will get all the changes that Google brought with Android Pie. Moreover, Samsung’s new OneUI interface with features like system-wide dark mode, gesture-based navigation and adaptive battery are also likely to be introduced in the update.

Meanwhile, HMD Global’s Chief Product Officer Juho Sarvikas has tweeted that Nokia 3 is now getting the Android Pie update. The update carries version number V5.120 and brings in features like new system navigation, adaptive battery, and adaptive brightness, along with the May 2019 security patch. The update is being rolled out over the air and will reach the phones in the coming weeks. Nokia 3 (2017) smartphones have already got the Android 8.1 Oreo update in December.

Last month, Google introduced the May security update to its Pixel series of devices and other Android phones. The Android bulletin said that the latest patch resolved a total of 10 issues across Framework, Media Framework and System components. The vulnerabilities range from high to critical, with the most severe relating to the media framework and a remote attacker possibly executing arbitrary code through a crafted file.

According to Google, there were “no reports of active customer exploitation or abuse of these newly reported issues.” However, the update fixes 21 issues with Samsung Vulnerabilities and Exposures (SVE) items. These are the issues that were identified in Samsung’s own software, a previous report said.
