Galaxy S7

Got yourself a Samsung Galaxy S7 or Galaxy S7 Edge in the UK and lamenting your inability to watch picture-in-picture? Good news: a new update will add that, as well as an all-new version of Android.

Galaxy S7 and Galaxy S7 edge Oreo update

Samsung is now rolling out firmware version G930FXXU2ERD5 and G935FXXU2ERD5 for the Galaxy S7 and Galaxy S7 edge respectively in the United Kingdom. The firmware is only available over-the-air right now and can’t be downloaded through SmartSwitch.

Android 8.0 Oreo brings many notable features to the table, including but not limited to: picture-in-picture mode, Autofill API, adaptive icons, notification channels and snoozing, and more. Samsung Experience 9.0 also offers a number of features on top of Google’s Oreo such as an overhauled keyboard, new edge lighting effects, better lock screen customization, and more. Like the Samsung Galaxy S8 and Note 8 before it, the Samsung Galaxy S7’s Android Oreo update does not bring Project Treble compatibility.
