Samsung Galaxy S7, Galaxy S7 Edge Oreo Updates Officially Confirmed, Coming Soon

LG G6 Oreo update

Such updates are rolled out in phases so please be patient, many Redditors residing in European Union have reported that they are receiving the update. For the Galaxy S7, the software firmware version is G930FXXU2ERD5, and for the Edge model, the firmware version is G935FXXU2ERD5.

The software update is also only available over-the-air as of now, but should soon be available for download via Samsung SmartSwitch as well. It comes installed with the April Android Security patch and is about 1.2GB in size.

After the update, the smartphones will have all the goodies of Android Oreo with Samsung Experience 9.0.

Samsung had promised a May roll-out, and they have kept their word.




Along with that, all the features of Android Oreo 8.0 such as the picture in picture mode, better doze, enhanced Auto-fill fields in any browser and much more are here. It's an update to the Android 8.0-based EMUI 8.0, which is a tad disappointing, as you'd expect a heavily marketed device like the Honor 7X to be receiving Android 8.1 by now.

The list includes the face unlock feature, a new floating navigation dock, updated Setting menu and Phone Manager, phone gallery recycle bin, as well as ability to connect with two Bluetooth devices at same time.

The Galaxy S7 and Galaxy S7 Edge may not be the newest flagships anymore, with the Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S9 lines out and about, but they're still powerful devices with plenty to offer. Other carriers in the United Kingdom should soon follow suite.
