Galaxy S7 Oreo update rolling out in various European countries

We have received a number of tips from Galaxy S7 and Galaxy S7 edge owners saying that the Oreo update for the device is available in a number of European countries. The update was released for Nordic countries earlier this week following its debut in the UK and then South Korea, and it is now available in at least Germany, Belgium, and Spain. In Spain, the update seems to be rolling out to only Vodafone-branded models, but it shouldn’t take long before the unlocked versions are updated as well.

Galaxy S7 Oreo update rolling out in more countries

The firmware version for the update is G930FXXU2ERE8, so it is the fixed version of Oreo for the Galaxy S7 and Galaxy S7 edge that Samsung had released after discovering a serious bug in the original version. Hopefully, this also means Samsung will soon be releasing the update globally to Galaxy S7 and S7 edge owners. It’s been a fairly long wait, although that’s not totally surprising as the pace of updates is expected to be slower two years after a flagship has been released. So until the update actually starts rolling out in your country, it’s best not to get too excited.

If you own a Galaxy S7 or Galaxy S7 edge, you can see if Oreo is available for your device by tapping Download updates manually in the Settings » Software update menu. You will also be able to download the complete firmware from our database once the update releases in your country so you can use a PC for the upgrade instead of downloading the update on the phone.

Got the Galaxy S7 Oreo update already? Let us know which country you’re from and how your phone works after installing the update by leaving a comment.

Thanks, Wies, and everyone who sent this in!

Am I the only one facing battery drain on Oreo? My S7 Edges cell standby consumption is 30% which is a big leap from Android N

I think this problem appears to everybody, when using 4G network. Some say, although their cell standby drain is high, they get almost the same usage time. I don’t know for myself, because I am using S8 with Oreo and the there is no cell drain

That’s right, the cell standby appears but it’s like a wrong reading of the battery stats.
I tried Oreo for a week and I got between 10 and 15% less battery life than with Nougat.
Yesterday I rolled back to Nougat. The changes are just a few . They are not worth the extra battery consumption.

Downloading now Greece EUR version of Oreo rom as an OTA update.
Yesterday i downloaded from the library the Greece Vodafone one and before flashing it, the official on my phone came up. So be patient, probably all will have updates in the upcoming days.

PS: Samsung, this is unacceptable for a 2 year/old flagship device (S7 Edge). You will loose clients becasue you didn’t hired 20 people to work on OS updates… be serious.

El mio era libre pero de Movistar y le meti la version PHE de 7.0 con Odin para esperar la OTA de oreo y no tener que esperar a que a Movistar la libere, pero mi impaciencia se habra adelantado ya que cada dia he estado comprobando manualmente y esta mañana llegó, va muy fluido y tiene nuevas funciones muy chulas en la camara con los stickers, nuevos relojes en always on display, la bateria parece que rinde algo mejor y voy descubriendo nuevas funciones en las notificaciones, etc… lo que no me gusta es que el led de notificaciones… Read more »
