Galaxy Note 7 Fan Edition Android 8.0 Oreo update is now available in South Korea

The Galaxy Note 7 Fan Edition (FE) has started receiving the update to Android 8.0 Oreo in South Korea today, following a certification for the device by the Wi-Fi Alliance with the new version of Android on-board earlier this week. The Galaxy Note 7 isn’t getting the update, of course, even if it was also submitted to the certification process, but now that Oreo for the Fan Edition is available, it should only be a matter of time before it comes to the Galaxy S7 and Galaxy S7 edge.

Galaxy Note 7 Fan Edition Oreo update

The Note 7 FE Oreo update is rolling out for the LG Uplus and SK Telecom variants, and the other major South Korean carriers should soon be pushing out the update as well. Unfortunately, there’s no word yet on what features and changes Oreo brings to Samsung’s 2016 flagships and just how much of the user interface will be made consistent with that on the Galaxy S8, Galaxy Note 8, and Galaxy S9+.

It also remains to be seen when the global unlocked variant of the Note 7 FE will receive the update, though chances are it will only take a few days at this point. That’s what we hope, at least, as the arrival of Oreo on the Galaxy S7 and Galaxy S7 edge might be dependent on the update first going out to all of the Note 7 FE variants.

Oreo firmware for the Galaxy Note 7 Fan Edition can be downloaded from our firmware database, and the update should also be available over the air from the Settings » Software update menu on the device. For those wondering, the update includes the April 2018 security patch.

Oh, c’mon stop complaining that S7 still not got Oreo update. It received every month security updates and for Note FE which is FAN edition we didn’t get anything until now. So as a FAN(boy) I was expecting to be treated better after what happened with Note 7 I still wanted to buy a Note device, in limited version for FANS of this device… and no updatets at all for official, none branded device!!! I just downloaded Oreo update and I’m happy but I should be pissed that it’s so late and probably again I will not see ANY update… Read more »

What a middle-finger to users who spent soo much money on the S7 series. They just ditched us. How heart breaking:_-(

At this point I’m happy for the NoteFE users (that received a heart on their device’s package) but at this point Samsung DEFINITELY has to tell us every single reason for which S7 hasn’t got Oreo YET

Android 8 was a waist of time. Don’t worry about it. It brings nothing to the table. Really not an issue to fret over

It should bring decent performance in simple tasks after years of waiting

I agree. I installed it on Note 8 few weeks ago. Using IMAP email with stock email app doesn’t clear read email 100%. Notifications stay MUCH longer than it should. Unable to tap app to stop it from running. I”m sure there are some good but those are the bad that I quickly found.

When A8 2016 (Sm-A810F) receive Oreo?

Still no s7 wtf….

So they release the update first on the phone that many buyers where forced to return, instead on the phone that they were forced to use and stayed “loyal” to samsung. 😀 For me personally, all oreo updates are absurdly late (even for s8, and s9+ half a year after 8.1 is on 8.0 lol). Also for me the perfect scenario will be on time update for all phones in the same time, ala apple. No excuses there, but they get one step further releasing the update firstly on midranges or refurbished phones instead of the flagship of 2016 for… Read more »
