Firmware news

Oreo for the Galaxy S7 and Galaxy S7 edge should be out in a couple of weeks

It’s unclear as yet precisely when Oreo for Galaxy S7 and Galaxy S7 edge is going to be rolled out. Samsung hasn’t provided a precise date so far but recent reports suggest that the update could be out by mid-May. A notice posted by the company in the Samsung Members app for Korean users reiterates the possibility that Oreo for Galaxy S7 and Galaxy S7 edge should be out by mid-May.

Oreo for Galaxy S7

It won’t be long before the Galaxy S7 and the Galaxy S7 edge are updated to Android 8.0 Oreo. Both handsets were recently certified by the Wi-Fi Alliance running the new firmware so it’s only a matter of time. All U.S. carrier variants have also been certified on Oreo.

Guncelmiyiz, a website run by Samsung Turkey, provides timeframes for firmware updates and the website was recently updated with a new schedule which stated that Oreo for Galaxy S7 will be out by May 18.

However, the schedules on this website tend to change often without notice so many might not have taken the information at face value. It’s a good sign, though, that the notice on the Korean Samsung Members app tells a similar story.

A machine translation of the notice reveals that the company is “doing its best” to have Oreo for Galaxy S7 and Galaxy S7 edge out by mid-May. That’s the plan now and hopefully, Samsung will stick to it if no issues are discovered in the update prior to release.

Updates for some other Samsung devices are in the pipeline as well and they’re slated to receive Oreo in the first half of this year. These devices include the Galaxy A5 and Galaxy A7 (2017) as well as both Wi-Fi and LTE variants of the Galaxy Tab S3.

We’ll surely let you know as soon as Oreo for Galaxy S7 and Galaxy S7 edge starts rolling out. It can reasonably be expected that the release timeframe won’t extend beyond mid-May now.

Thanks, Razvan!

Oh Samsung.. you are so full of $hit…. You promise all Note8 a month ago and my unlocked version ZTO is still far from seen it.

Looks like Samsung is still working on what features it should leave out in Oreo for S7 series, so that the sales of S8 and S9 series will not be affected. Typical.

I’m almost sure that they have stable version ready for OTA,but they don’t want to release it on purpose.

Seeing this pathetic s7 edge oreo update serial has no ending, I decided after 1.5 years to root my device.
So I can say that having significantly better performance plus other goodies like no ads, dual speakers, better audio output quality and battery life are worth the tradeoff.
Same on samsung for treating their costumers this way.
I’ve been a samsung user for the past 3 years but I don’t see myself buying a samsung phone as my next upgrade…

So, Samsung will now list the flagship series A or J, since the S series is not flagship. I’m really sorry.So, Samsung will now name the flagship series A or J, since the S series is not flagship, I’m really sorry. Learn from the apple.

we are in may and I do not see the shadow of an update or even for the patches of April, just say that the update 8.0 for s7 will never be released and make more beautiful.

Then in one or two weeks we’ll see (plot twist) “S7 Oreo update postponed”

If samsung was able to create a decent software at the right time, we could peacefully wait but..

They are lazy developing May security patches, so there’s no possibility for oreo on the first 2 weeks
