Unlocked Samsung Galaxy S7, S7 Edge finally getting Android Oreo in UK

Samusng Galaxy S7 Android Oreo

Don't give up on your Galaxy S7 phone yet; Samsung Korea had revealed that it'll be releasing its Android 8.0 Oreo update to the S7 by mid-May, and some people are already seeing the update.

As first reported by SamMobile, Android Oreo is now starting its rollout to the Galaxy S7 and the Galaxy S7 Edge in the United Kingdom. For the Galaxy S7, the software firmware version is G930FXXU2ERD5, and for the Edge model, the firmware version is G935FXXU2ERD5.

Samsung's software update game was quite decent this year, and now the company is looking to one-up that reputation.

Where the Galaxy S7 is getting a software update with version G930UUEU4BRD1, the Galaxy S7 Edge is on software version G935UUEU4BRD1.

You'll know you've been graced with Oreo's good fortune when you have a 1.27GB update file waiting for you.

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.

The firm will surely be rolling out these updates to US-based users in the coming months. With this brand new update, your Galaxy S7/S7 edge will be running on the easy-going Samsung Experience UI 9.0, and your device will be defended with the latest April Security Patch. Samsung does not list a specific date for when the update will start rolling out, but mid-May means that it should not be more than two weeks away.
