Galaxy S7 and Galaxy S7 edge Oreo update rollout resumed

The Galaxy S7 and the Galaxy S7 edge finally received their Oreo update a few weeks ago. Samsung initially started rolling out the update in the United Kingdom and while the company was yet to start a wider rollout, it had to temporarily pull the update.

We reported yesterday that Samsung had temporarily halted the rollout of the Galaxy S7 and Galaxy S7 edge Oreo update due to some issues. Fortunately, it hasn’t been a big delay, because we’re now seeing that the rollout has been resumed by Samsung.

Galaxy S7 and Galaxy S7 edge Oreo update

The confirmation of the rollout being halted came from a moderator on Samsung’s official help forum for Europe. The moderator posted that following a small number of cases where Galaxy S7 units rebooted unexpectedly with Oreo, the company has decided to stop the release as it investigates the issue to ensure that the impact on affected devices is minimized and that it can resume the rollout as soon as possible.

A similar notice was also posted on Samsung’s official help forum for Canada where a moderator wrote that the Android 8.0 Oreo update for the Galaxy S7 and Galaxy S7 edge is pending in need of a fix for a technical issue that was discovered after the update was released.

Samsung has now resumed the Galaxy S7 and Galaxy S7 edge Oreo update release which is good for those who have been waiting for a taste of Oreo. It’s now rolling out firmware version G930FXXU2ERE8 and G935FXXU2ERE8 for the Galaxy S7 and the Galaxy S7 edge respectively.

While initially, it may have appeared that they would have to wait for some time after the rollout was halted because users had to wait for a couple of weeks after the Galaxy S8/S8+ Oreo update was halted earlier this year due to similar issues, but Samsung appears to have worked through the problem swiftly enough to start sending out the update once again.

Looks like even this time (second rollout) they were not able to solve the issues they had so they’re “working” to solve them and we’ll have to wait until June (2 weeks as for the first rollout). Every day this is getting more and more ridiculous and it was already ridiculous that S7 was left with the old touchwiz for a whole year after S8 introduced it

To offset so much of the expectation of Samsung Galaxy S7 users should also offer Android p 9.0 for these users.

Best way to enjoy oreo now is flash the latest UK BTU. My phone is Hungary (XEH), it is working ! No problem !

I don’t think it is gonna be earlier. It’s a lame samsung’s updates schedule. Have been already presented Android P and we don’t have Oreo yet.
My first Samsung since Galaxy S plus, and for sure is the last one.

How difficult would be release all countries together. If apple can do it, samsung could do it too
