AT&T has started rolling out a new firmware update for the Samsung Galaxy J3 (2016) on its network. The entry-level handset was released last year and many who own it have been waiting to get a taste of Nougat on their handset. The wait is finally over for them. AT&T has now released the Android 7.1.1 Nougat for the Galaxy J3 (2016) on its network.
The carrier has started rolling out firmware update J320AUCU3BQI5 for the Samsung Galaxy J3 (2016) on its network. The update weighs in at 1GB but that’s not surprising given that it’s a major release. It brings a handful of new features for the device, such as an improved Doze mode, an improved notifications experience, and more.
The official changelog for this update on AT&T’s website reveals that this update also brings the fix for the Blueborne exploit. This Bluetooth-based exploit was discovered recently and it affects a significant number of devices, not just on Android but on other platforms like Windows and Linux as well.
Last but not the least, the Android security patch for August 2017 has been included in this update as well. Samsung hasn’t really released the September patch for many devices as it has been busy with rolling out the Blueborne fix.
Galaxy J3 (2016) owners on AT&T should have received an update notification on their handset by now, the carrier released Android 7.1.1 Nougat for this handset over-the-air not too long ago.
