We all know Samsung is working on its brand new Android 7.1.1 Nougat firmware update. The current Android 7.0 Nougat is called Samsung Experience 8.1, whereas, the earlier 6.0.1 Marshmallow is called TouchWiz. The next firmware update name confirmation is not yet know, but what we have here is the first build of 7.1.1 Nougat full stock firmware build for you.

Samsung’s first Android 7.1.1 Nougat update comes with the firmware build number (Baseband version) J3308ZMU1AQG3. It comes to the Samsung Galaxy J3 2017 device with model number SM-J3308 for now. The firmware is meant for J3 phones based off Chinese Mobile carrier and not the global variant. Not much is known about the firmware as no one has yet flashed the firmware on their device.

This only means one thing that the 7.1.1/7.1.2 Nougat update is coming to Samsung Galaxy S8, S8 Plus, S7, S7 Edge, Note 5, Note FE, and even the S6 (Edge) sooner than expected. We can expect it as soon as mid-August when Google released the official Android O. Then the manufacturer can start working on Android O for the Samsung devices.
