Galaxy S7 and S7 edge Oreo update now rolling out in India
Samsung first released the Galaxy S7 Oreo update in the United Kingdom last month but ended up halting the rollout soon after to fix an issue. It then started rolling out the update a few days after that and has now been taking its sweet time in bringing Oreo for the Galaxy S7 and Galaxy S7 edge to other markets.
The wait finally ends for those who own these handsets in India as Samsung has finally started rolling out the Galaxy S7 and S7 edge Oreo update in India. The firmware is also being rolled out for the handsets in the United Arab Emirates.
