How to Capture the OTA..?
OTA usually rolls in on its own to every device and the process will remain the same with Galaxy J3 2017. However, often OTA updates don’t appear in time as per expectation. This means even if the update is available in some region, you may not receive it at that particular moment. So, you have to search for the new software on your own. To do it,
- Go to your phone Settings > System Update.
- Tap on Check for Latest Updates.
