Samsung is sticking religiously to its Android Pie roadmap. Slowly and gradually Galaxy J7 2017 devices started embracing the Pie update with SM-J730FM variants. The new Android 9.0 Pie for Samsung Galaxy J7 2017 is rolling out for Russia, and the Middle East. Along with the new system upgrade, the software also packs May 2019 security patch.
With the upgrade to Android Pie, Samsung introduces the One UI user interface.

Latest Android 9.0 Pie update is rolling as an over-the-air(OTA) update. So, technically your Galaxy J7 2017 should notify you of the update as it shows up on your device. Then all you have to do is simply download and install the new software. It may happen that while you keep waiting for the airborne system update, but it delays too much to show up. Then to fix that, you can search for the new OTA update on your own. It’s quite simple. Go to your phone Settings > System Update > tap on Check for Latest Updates.
If the update shows up, then download and install it by following the instructions you see on your display. As it is system upgrade, it will weigh in around gigabytes. So, we suggest you find and connect to a stable Wi-Fi network and download the update swiftly. This will also save you from being charged for data by your tele-carrier. Also, make sure to juice up your device over 50% before installing the update. This will help to avoid any power related interruptions while you carry on with the OTA download and install.
