The Samsung Galaxy J3 (2017) has just surfaced on GFXBench, and it comes with Android 7.0 Nougat. This handset was originally announced back in January, along with its Galaxy A5 (2017) and Galaxy A7 (2017) siblings, though all of those devices were introduced with Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow. Well, it seems like the Android 7.0 Nougat update is coming to the Galaxy A3 (2017), if GFXBench is to be believed, of course. This probably means that the other two Galaxy A devices are about to get the update soon as well.
