Sprint Galaxy S7 and S7 edge receiving Android 8.0 Oreo update

Wednesday, June 20th, 2018

It took a while, but US carriers are finally rolling Android 8.0 Oreo out to the Galaxy S7 and S7 edge. AT&T was, surprisingly enough, the first to do so, with Verizon hot on its heels after two false alarms. Sprint is now rolling the update out to its S7/S7 edge phones, leaving T-Mobile as the last major carrier to update them.

It looks like the update started rolling out around two days ago, and people seem pretty pleased with it.

AT&T Galaxy S7 and S7 edge now receiving Android 8.0 Oreo update

AT&T has become the first US carrier to roll the Android 8.0 Oreo out to the Galaxy S7 and S7 edge. We'd thought it would be Verizon, but Big Red has now pulled its S7 Oreo changelog down twice. AT&T, however, is cutting to the chase by actually releasing the update and skipping this support page nonsense.

We received several tips from you guys about this. The update obviously includes the standard Oreo features like Autofill, picture-in-picture, notification dots, etc.

Verizon Galaxy S7 and S7 edge receiving Android 8.0 Oreo update (for real this time)

Wednesday, June 6th, 2018

Over a month ago, Verizon toyed with Galaxy S7 and S7 edge owners' hearts by saying that the Android 8.0 Oreo update was rolling out, when in reality it had simply posted the wrong changelog. However, Verizon has again updated its support pages for the S7 and S7 edge, presumably for real this time.

While the build numbers are actually Oreo build numbers this time (R16NW.G930VVRU4CRE5 for the S7 and R16NW.G935VVRU4CRE5 for the S7 edge), both still come with the now two-months-old April 2018 security patch.

Samsung Galaxy S7 and S7 edge receiving Android 8.0 Oreo update in the UK

Tuesday, May 1st, 2018

Recently in the US, Verizon inadvertently trolled Galaxy S7 and S7 edge owners on its network by releasing an update that supposedly brought Android Oreo to the devices. It turns out the carrier had just attached the wrong changelog, and Oreo wasn't imminent at all. To rub salt into the wounds of those customers, S7 and S7 edge units in the UK are now actually receiving the Oreo update.

A number of users on Reddit with unlocked versions (model numbers SM-G930F and SM-G935F) are able to confirm the OTA update is reaching them.
