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.
