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


Last updated: April 26th, 2018 at 12:33 UTC+02:00

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.
