Galaxy S7 gets its first post-Oreo update in Europe

While the Galaxy S7 Oreo update is yet to arrive in plenty of countries, Samsung is pushing the first post-Oreo software update in some markets. The new update brings the July 2018 security patch, bumping up the security patch directly from April, which came with the Oreo update. The Galaxy S7 edge isn’t receiving the same update at the moment, but that shouldn’t be the case for long.

Galaxy S7 gets a new Android 8.0-based update

The new Galaxy S7 update is currently out in the Netherlands and doesn’t bring anything other than improved security. It will be interesting to see if some countries get the Android 8.0 Oreo update directly with the July patch. It’s far from likely that will happen for a two-year old flagship, though. Those still running Nougat will probably just be interested in first getting the latest version of Android anyway, and here’s hoping Samsung doesn’t take too long to bring Oreo to the Galaxy S7 and Galaxy S7 edge worldwide.

The update brings with it build number G930FXXU2ERG2 and can be downloaded on the Galaxy S7 from the Settings » Software update menu. We’ll update this post once we have the firmware up in our database as well as once the Galaxy S7 edge also gets the update.

Have you received the new update on your Galaxy S7 or Galaxy S7 edge?

It’s hard to trace those as samsung aren’t really into detailed logs what changed. If we go by the changes made into the kernels – they are quite a few and no way to know if all of them are security patches related, I actually highly doubt they are and most likely tweaking here and there is constantly happening with every build. If one would notice something is another matter tho.

A Samsung está de parabéns pela tamanha incompetência! Falta de consideração por seus consumidores que pagaram caro pra obter esse celular… Espero de coração que as vendas na AMÉRICA LATINA seja um fiasco pra vocês tomarem vergonha na cara e repensar esse suporte FALHO E ATRASADO.
VERGONHA! Smartphone Samsung? NÃO, obrigado. 🙂

Engraçado é que eu tive um S5 G900MD antes do S7, e no dia 22/07/2016 ele recebeu a atualização pra Marshmallow. Quem dera se meu S7 recebesse a Oreo hoje, 22/07/2018 ! Detalhe: G900MD foi vendido único e exclusivamente no BRASIL, enquanto o G930F é um modelo internacional

Yeah, cool. How about bringing ZTO Oreo for my G930F, Samsung?

En America seguimos esperando la actualizacion a android 8 y en Europa ya salio un actualizacion de Oreo. Pesimo el servicio de Samsung. Ojala que los chinos le rompan el mercado a ver si recapacita y mejora el servicio post-venta.

Did you manage to unbrick it? Did it show you a blue screen showing error or the like? If you want, I will try to help you try to unbrick it through Odin.
