First Galaxy S7 edge Oreo firmware download available now
Samsung finally started rolling out the Android 8.0 Oreo update for the Galaxy S7 and the Galaxy S7 edge yesterday.

Samsung released Oreo for the Galaxy S7 and the Galaxy S7 edge for the unlocked and Vodafone-branded variants in the United Kingdom yesterday and it’s only a matter of time now before the firmware is released in other markets.
If you’ve been waiting for the firmware files then rejoice because we now have the first Galaxy S7 edge Oreo firmware available for download. The file can be found in our firmware section.
Galaxy S7 edge Oreo firmware
Samsung initially released Oreo for these handsets over-the-air in the United Kingdom. The update should have arrived for all users in the country by now. Other carriers should be rolling it out soon as well.
We can expect Oreo for the Galaxy S7 and Galaxy S7 edge to be released in more markets in the coming weeks. It’s in line with Samsung’s mid-May timeframe. Those who own carrier-locked variants in markets like the United States may have to wait for a bit longer as the carriers tend to run their own tests which ends up further delaying the release.
Firmware version G935FXXU2ERD5 was rolled out for the Galaxy S7 edge in the United Kingdom. The relevant file is now available for download from our firmware section for the Galaxy S7 edge. The firmware file for the Galaxy S7 will be available soon as well and we’ll update this post as soon as it’s live.
The update comes with the latest security patch for the month of April 2018 as well as all features that are part and parcel of Android 8.0. Check out our detailed What’s New With Android 8.0 Oreo series to find out more about all of the new features that are included in this release.
