The Galaxy S7 and S7 Edge Will be Updated to Android 8.0 Oreo by May

30 April, 2018 Samsung Updates

Android 8.0 Oreo might be an old OS for Pixel users by now, but it is a version of the Android OS that is has still not arrived on a lot of third-party devices. Samsung is not exactly known to be fast at rolling out the firmware updates and especially when it comes to major Android OS upgrades, but what one can rely on the South Korean company for is the fact that their flagships will eventually get all the major Android upgrades for at least two years from their release. Staying true to that reputation, Samsung will in all likelihood, release the firmware update for the S7 and S7 Edge by May 18.

This fact was confirmed after the two devices were seen being tested and certified on Wi-Fi Alliance. The good news for our readers in the US is that all the US carrier variants have also been certified and will thus receive the Oreo update pretty soon as well. However, since carrier rollouts are subject to the scheduling of the carriers themselves, we are not sure which carrier will be releasing the update when. In any case, it should not be too long now.
