Galaxy S7/S7 edge, A5 (2017), and A3 (2017) set to receive the Android Oreo update soon

Home / News / Galaxy S7/S7 edge, A5 (2017), and A3 (2017) set to receive the Android Oreo update soon

After months of testing, Samsung has finally started rolling out the Android 8.0 Oreo update beginning with the Galaxy S8 and S8+ in February. Since then, the company has been rolling out the update in various markets and on numerous carriers around the world. Recently, Samsung has also started seeding the Oreo update to the Galaxy Note 8, and the Galaxy S8 Active has received the update as well. Now that last year’s flagship models are already receiving the update, Samsung seems to be focusing on other Galaxy devices.

Galaxy S7 and S7 Edge may get the update this month

Samsung appears to be finalizing the Android 8.0 update for the Galaxy S7, Galaxy S7 Edge, Galaxy A3 (2017), and Galaxy A5 (2017). All these devices have been spotted at the Wi-Fi Alliance with the Android 8.0 onboard for certification. Older phones undergoing certification with a newer version of Android signals that the public rollout of the update is inching closer for these devices.

The timing of this certification also aligns nicely with the previous report about the Android 8.0 update schedule for select Galaxy devices. According to this schedule from Samsung Turkey, the Galaxy S7 series should start receiving the Oreo update in April, while the Galaxy A3 (2017) and A5 (2017) are supposed to get in May. As usual, the update may take a few months before it reaches all regional and carrier variants of the above-mentioned models.

Even after sending out the update to all these devices, Samsung will still have dozens of recently launched Galaxy devices awaiting the Oreo update. Looking at the pace at which Samsung is rolling out the update, it’s clear that Google will release the next major version of Android before most Galaxy devices receive Oreo. To see if your device is eligible for the Oreo update, check out this list.

Nope, S6 already had 2 major updates. Oreo is the last major update for S7’s so whenever you do upgrade phones I’d start with S8 as that’ll have 1 more major update when Android P releases.

I have tested the Oreo developer base for S7 edge and great can say it is much better then Nougat.
Very fast and snappy and smoother.
And some nic little changes too.
Because it was not official release only dev base i have flashed back latest stock nougat so i can get official OTA update.

I think it will be in few weeks definetly not this week. But for sure in April.

I think the all of the mentioned phones will get the update earlier than what was shown on Samsung Turkey website. Note 8 got it on March 16, 2 weeks before March 30 (the date shown on the website).
Fingers crossed for this week update for S7 edge.

It is a forked ios version. Apple cut and slim down the update for old phones and this is only for marketing purpose. Take a look on the forums and you will see plenty of statements like yours. It is only for marketing and peace of mind of iphone users to stay glued to Apple.

Even Galaxy S6 have Experience 8.0 on 7.0 Nougat. Install Samsung Sound Assistant app from Play Store and check app info.
