AT&T’s Galaxy S7 and Galaxy S7 edge Oreo update rolling out for some users
The Galaxy S7 and Galaxy S7 edge may be getting updated to Android 8.0 Oreo on the AT&T network in the US. We had received a tip from an AT&T S7 user about the update’s availability over the weekend, and at least one user on the AT&T forums claims to have downloaded Oreo on the S7 edge. It’s likely the update really is rolling out, as Verizon has also released the Oreo update for the Galaxy S7 and Galaxy S7 edge (yes, North America’s largest carrier did remove Oreo details from its support pages a second time, but it has since made things official again).
Galaxy S7 Oreo update now more widely available
The Galaxy S7 Oreo update has now been released in a number of markets around the world, though it still hasn’t reached everyone. In the US, T-Mobile and Sprint still haven’t said anything about the update, but it shouldn’t be long before that changes. If you have a Galaxy S7 or Galaxy S7 edge on AT&T, you can check if Oreo is available for you by going into the Settings » Software update menu on the phone and tapping Download updates manually. It’s a big update, so a Wi-Fi network is recommended for the download.
The build number after updating should be G935AUCU4CRE4 and the security patch date would be April 1. New features include an upgraded Samsung keyboard with new emojis and high-contrast options, autofill support, Picture-in-Picture mode, App Pair, Dual Messenger, App Pair, notification dots for app icons, and more. We have covered these features in detail in our What’s New With Android 8.0 Oreo series of articles, so be sure to take a look to see what functionality Oreo brings to your Galaxy S7.
Let us know if your Galaxy S7 or Galaxy S7 edge has received the Oreo update if you’re on AT&T’s network.
