Your Galaxy S7 could get Android Oreo this month

02 May 2018

Recently in the US, Verizon inadvertently trolled Galaxy S7 and S7 edge owners on its network by releasing an update that supposedly brought Android Oreo to the devices. For the Galaxy S7, the software firmware version is G930FXXU2ERD5, and for the Edge model, the firmware version is G935FXXU2ERD5. The firmware update is now being rolled out over-the-air in the United Kingdom but is expected to roll out in other markets as well. It noted the rollout time for Oreo updates scheduled for a number of devices, including the Galaxy S7 line.

With the Oreo, Samsung has also updated the security patch level of the devices to 1st April.

For the unfamiliar, Android Oreo brings tons of new features to the operating system, including PiP, autofill, notification channels as well as the Samsung Experience update 9.0.

The hardware still packs a punch, and the software is about to get a major boost with Android 8.0 Oreo on its way.

Honor 7X users who signed up for the Oreo beta program received beta updates towards the end of February.
