Remember Samsung UK announced that the Galaxy E7 will not get a Lollipop upgrade? Well, this was not for the India, at least. Samsung has started the roll-out of Android 5.1.1 Lollipop update for the Galaxy E7 in India. The device, released together with E5, came with Android 4.4.4 KitKat at that time and it seems that Samsung made a huge leap from KitKat to 5.1.1, skipping Android 5.0 altogether!

Galaxy E5 got its update sooner, about two months ago, while the Android 5.1 upgrade for E7 appeared in Sri Lanka on the first days of the current month, and now in India. You can check for the OTA update (E700HXXU1BOJ7) in Settings on your Galaxy E7 handset (SM-E700H), or you can download it yourself and flash it manually via Odin.
