Galaxy S7 Edge update news and firmware download

galaxy s7 edge update

The Android 8.0 update will be the last BIG update for the Galaxy S7 Edge. So, it’s pretty important one too — because once the 8.0 upgrade has arrived, the next OTA updates will carry the monthly security patch, and maybe a rare serious bug fixer or feature update.

Well, here you will find all the important news about the Galaxy S7 Edge update, as well download mirrors (links) of the firmware so that you can download the firmware all by yourself and install it right away. Of course, we will share important bit about the Android 8.0 update release prospects too here, so that you know when you could expect the S7 Edge to get its 8.0 upgrade, which it surely will.

Galaxy S7 Edge is a 2016 flagship from Samsung, one that was launched with Android 6.0 on-board. The device saw an update to Android 7.0 back in January, but is still awaiting the Android 7.1.1 build from Samsung, despite the 7.1.1 arriving on the scene a long, long time ago.

We expect the Android 7.1.1 update to arrive sometime in August-September 2017 on the S7 Edge — it would ironical if Google releases the Android 8.0 update for Pixel/Nexus sets before that, which is also the most probably case too.

The Android 8.0 release for the Galaxy S7 Edge should begin sometime in March 2018 for the unlocked sets. Yep, that’s a bit late. We just know by experience that by that time, we would have seen Motorola upgrade its Moto G5, G5 Plus, G5S, and G5S Plus to Android 8.0, which cost about half of the Galaxy S7 Edge, and are far from the status of a flagship set.

But anyway, it’s Samsung, and you have to live with that. We expect the Korean mobile phone maker to come with an Android 8.0 build for Galaxy S8 sometime in January 2018. The Android 8.0 could be expected on other Samsung devices only after that. And we’ve seen that the gap between rollout of major Android OS update between two flagship devices is usually two months, which brings us March release for the S7 Edge 8.0 update.
