Galaxy A7 (2017) Oreo update is rolling out in Vietnam

The Galaxy A3 (2017) and Galaxy A5 (2017) have been receiving the Android 8.0 Oreo update in Russia for a few days now, and it looks like the Galaxy A7 (2017) is joining the Oreo party today, only this time the update has been released in Vietnam. One of our readers has sent us screenshots of the Oreo update from the A7 (2017); the build number is getting a jump to A720FXXU3CRD3, and the update includes the April 2018 security patch.

Galaxy A7 (2017) Oreo update now rolling out

With the Galaxy A7 (2017) Oreo update rolling out, all three 2017 Galaxy A series models are now making the transition to the latest version of Android. However, as we had said earlier, the update is likely to take a few weeks to reach countries other than the one where it debuted for each device. The way Samsung works – leaving each of its regional arms to do things of their own accord – makes it impossible to say when an update will arrive for a particular region, and we’re even seeing the A7 (2017) getting the April security update in a few markets this week without Oreo, which should give you an idea of how things will proceed for many (if not most) countries.

You can, however, keep checking if Oreo is available for your Galaxy A series device by tapping the Download updates manually option in the Settings » Software update menu. The Galaxy A7 (2017) Oreo update is 1.3GB in size, so it’s recommended to use a Wi-Fi for the download unless you have lots of data bandwidth available on your mobile data plan. For details on everything Android 8.0 Oreo brings to the table, check out our extensive coverage, but keep in mind that you may not get all of the new features and functionality that are included in the Oreo update for Samsung’s flagship devices.

Seeing the Oreo update on your A7 (2017)? Let us know if you are by leaving a comment!

Thanks, Lê Vũ Minh Khang!

due to the disappointment of the samsung users then slowly the users start to leave the samsung brand mobile products and switch to other products .. if you guys are slow then do not be surprised one day you will go bankrupt .. only one suggestion from me if the same type and model of each country do os release globally ..

im user samsung A7 2017 from indonesia. are very surprised with samsung’s policy of releasing its OS when its mobile type is the same as it should be if one type is enough release globally instead of distinguish time in release to every country .. i highly suspect that if due to language difference in one country it very easy because every os there is a choice of his language .. but this is still something that is inserted into os samsung so that every region is different although the same type and model of mobile phone .. it is… Read more »

The above given date is for turkey. Just notice that the A7 2017 series are now getting oreo but the turkey website still says that the update will available on 1st june. So don’t expect the update will be rollout on that time. And now the note 7 fan edition also getting oreo in south korea but, S7 not.

@JERRICKGODVIN12 Yes, it’s almost a guarantee that this same thing will happen to S8 in 2019, and S9 in 2020.

Now the mid-range samsung phones which is scheduled next to the S7|Edge are getting oreo update but the 2016 flagship devices still on nougat. I think we will get taste of oreo after the android P update for S9|S9+. And why the hell the update was postponed to mid may?, Is any guarantee that the same thing will happen to S8, S9 users in future..?

I am an s7 user and impatiemtly waiting for oreo update. But I think Samsung is doing it right, first 2017 models then 2016, no matter whether it is a flagship or not.

Why do we pay the extra money then? To watch others get their update? Foolish samsung.

You paid extra money for better performance and not for updates. You’re just a mad dude with no clue. You can pay extra money for an s9/s9+ and get the oreo if you really think so. Chill out and wait, because your words and mine are not solving the issue. Happy waiting!

Dude why should I buy s9 to get oreo?
U pay money to get the services.Other mediocre devices getting the update ahead of us is unbearable.

So they must update 2018 phones first, i mean A8 and A8+

fcaroll

They should be f****ng able to update all their dozens of devices independently from which one came first, it’s unbelievable that something as big as Samsung has only 4-5 developers that can’t update more than one device at once, come on that’s ridiculous

-Samsung to S7 users: “TROLOLOLOLOL”

Has anyone ever wondered about why Samsung isn’t able to rollout updates to more than one model at once? I mean, if they have so many models they should be able to keep up too..

Le A7 mis à jour avant le S7… Décidément Samsung continue de prendre ses meilleurs clients d’hier pour des idiots et des pigeons.
Cette politique de mise à jour est ridicule, Inadmissible, insupportable, et ne date pas d’hier…
Oui je vais investir dans un nouveau téléphone mais Samsung c’est fini pour moi, d’autres fabricants font aussi bien sans prendre les gens pour des C…
