Samsung rolls out Android Pie with One UI for the Galaxy On7 Prime
Samsung has been amazing us with the timeliness of its updates ever since it announced One UI based on Android Pie. Besides targeting its flagships, Samsung has also shown a similar enthusiasm for its mid-rangers like the Galaxy A6+ and entry-level devices like the Galaxy J4+ or Galaxy J6. Now, another affordable smartphone from Samsung – the Galaxy On7 Prime is getting a taste of the Android Pie update in India.
The Galaxy On7 Prime was launched in India last year at the price of ₹12,990 (~$200 then) with a slight upgrade in specifications over the Galaxy J7 Prime. While the Galaxy On7 Prime is no longer available online for sale, it is a pleasure to see the Android Pie update arriving on the phone, considering that it was not even among the devices listed for the update.
As for the One UI update, it is a little over a 1GB in size and we recommend using a Wi-Fi connection, especially if your daily data usage is capped. The update primarily brings a completely revamped interface over the previous Samsung Experience UI. With One UI, Samsung has moved the interactive features to the bottom of the screen so that users can continue using the phone with a single hand in spite of large displays. Apart from this, the update also brings a system-wide Night Mode (i.e. Samsung’s name for a dark mode) and reorganized Settings to the Galaxy On7 Prime.
The update includes new features like quick replies, floating Samsung keyboard, a “Scene optimizer” in the camera, improvements to Bixby, and more. Additionally, there are quick access shortcuts for Kids Home in the quick settings and a step counter in the notification shade.
To install the update, go to Settings>Software Update on your Samsung Galaxy On7 Prime. If the OTA is not already available, it shall be in the matter of a few days.
