Home / News / Here’s a video of Android 8.0 Oreo running on the Galaxy S7 edge

It seems like the accidental Android 8.0 Oreo release for the Galaxy S7 edge may actually have taken place because someone over at Samsung hit the wrong button, as the final Galaxy S8 Oreo update has started making its way to beta testers in Germany just a few hours later. The Galaxy S7 edge update might have looked dubious to some, given how it can be easy to fake screenshots, but a hands-on video of Oreo on the S7 edge has been uploaded to allay our suspicion.

Galaxy S7 edge Android 8.0 Oreo hands-on video

As you can see in the video, this is the full Android 8.0 Oreo experience as seen on the Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8+’ Oreo. Everything from the home screen icons through the settings menu to the camera app has been updated, with the phone running Samsung Experience 9.0. Bixby Home is included as well. It’s important to note, however, that there is still no word on how stable or complete this particular release is.

The camera app, for example, seems to be missing Bixby Vision and also some sticker options. It’s possible Samsung will not be offering some of these features to Galaxy S7 and Galaxy S7 edge owners, but we’ll just have to wait and see. For now, go ahead and check out Android 8.0 Oreo on the Galaxy S7 edge in the video below. Also, check out our What’s New With Android 8.0 Oreo series of articles to see the kind of features you can expect with Oreo.

I’m amazed, it actually looks like Oreo for the SIDES which is pretty weird coming from Samsung.

It isn’t first time when Samsung relasing accidentally update before final rollout. I think I red something similiar about Note 8 and Note 4 or 5 here. I don’t know.

this must be the version of oreo, because if it were a mistake the baseband or kerner would fail the S7 or simply not turn on

That´s really great! By all the waiting for Updates it´s exciting that we s7 users get the SE9 with the Oreo Update. So long no update for the Always On Display and now we will recieve even the Edge Lighting. Great!

It’s not fair for those who buy new phones such as note 8 that apparently will get Oreo after a phone released in 2016 with the same UI. I expect that if S9 comes with a new UI, this UI will be brought to S8 and Note8 as well.

I think that the S9 duo will come with a slightly reworked UI of the S8 duo/Note 8 which will be called SE 9.1, and then in about 6 months from now the Note 9 will arrive with a huge UI overhaul (SE 9.5 or 10.0?), and some time after that (maybe not until Android P) the S9 duo will receive the new UI as well. After that the S8 and Note 8 are sure to get the same UI with Android P. The same happened when Note 7 was released with Grace UX (still under the name TouchWiz) –… Read more »

I do not think so, Samsung has worked really hard for SE 9.0
The S9 HAS to be a very different otherwise I just cannot see it selling at all. The S9 will likely be the in-between for the end of the S series and the beginning of the new ‘S10/X’ series. S8s might get some new feature of Android P but highly doubt it will be an S9 experience.

I’m very excited. It’s not like before, when older phones didn’t get a lot of features with a second major update, now the S7 actually gets 99% (if not 100%) from what we’ve seen on S8 Oreo beta final build.
Thank you Samsung!
