Galaxy A7 (2017) Oreo update is rolling out in more regions


Last updated: April 26th, 2018 at 13:00 UTC+02:00

Unlike the Galaxy A3 (2017) and Galaxy A5 (2017), the Galaxy A7 (2017) Oreo update didn’t debut in Russia. Vietnam was the first market to get the A7 (2017) Oreo update, but it looks like Samsung Russia wasn’t too far behind and is also rolling out Android 8.0 Oreo for the largest of Samsung’s 2017 A series phones. That’s not all. The update is also available in Trinidad and Tobago, which suggests the Galaxy A7 (2017) has the highest priority right now, possibly because it’s the best-selling model in the 2017 Galaxy A lineup.

Galaxy A7 (2017) Oreo update

Like all of the Oreo updates released for devices in April, the A7 (2017) update includes the month’s security patch. If you own the phone in any of the countries mentioned above, you should be able to grab the update over the air by tapping the Download updates manually in the Software update section of the Settings app. We also have the firmware available in our database if you want to upgrade using a PC; if you’re using a PC, the Oreo update should also be available through Samsung Smart Switch in the near future.

Don’t forget to tell us how you’re liking Oreo if you have updated your Galaxy A7 (2017) or one of the other two Galaxy A (2017) phones by leaving a comment. Getting the update in a different country? Let us know where so other readers can be informed about its availability.
