Samsung has announced that it’s planning to start rolling out the Android 8.0 Oreo update for the Galaxy S7 and Galaxy S7 Edge in at least one region by the middle of May, with a view to releasing it elsewhere soon thereafter.
Galaxy S7 is getting oreo
It won’t be long before the Galaxy S7 and the Galaxy S7 edge are updated to Android 8.0 Oreo. Both handsets were recently certified by the Wi-Fi Alliance running the new firmware so it’s only a matter of time. All U.S. carrier variants have also been certified on Oreo.
First off, Samsung says it’s doing its best to update the Galaxy S7 and S7 edge until mid-May unless there’s a major issue with the final build that requires a delay. If that happens, we’ll have to wait a while longer.
Secondly, three other Samsung handsets are expected to receive Android Oreo updates in the first half of the year. These devices are the Samsung Galaxy A5 (2017), Samsung Galaxy A7 (2017), and Samsung Galaxy Tab S3 (LTE, WiFi).
Hopefully, Samsung’s work on these Oreo updates won’t suffer any setbacks so that customers can enjoy the benefits of the newest Android OS version, even after all this time.
