Galaxy C7 Oreo Update: Android 8.0 release date remains elusive

Galaxy C7 Oreo Update

Update [October 16, 2017]: Samsung hasn’t begun its beta program for Oreo for the Galaxy S8 yet, which means that they don’t have a Android 8.0 build ready with them for any device. Only when Oreo rollout starts for Galaxy S8, we will know how much extra it would take the bug Sammy for other devices, including the Galaxy C5 and C7.


Original article: Find the major updates for the Galaxy C7 and C7 Pro on this page, along with download link of the firmware (except China region). That apart, as Google recently released the Android Oreo update too, we have a lot to talk about here.

Well, to be frank, even though the C7 and C7 Pro are amazing smartphones — bringing the glory of Samsung smartphone in metal — the situation looks pretty dull on the software update front. We’re yet to see Samsung release Nougat update for these two, so, Oreo then? Let’s talk below for each of the devices.

Samsung launched the C7 (SM-C7000) back in June 2016, and is yet to release the Android 7.0 Nougat update for the device. Hence, one cannot be too sure about C7′ Oreo update.

Expected Oreo release: Not expected.

Coming to market only in February 2017, by all essence, Samsung should be releasing the Android 8.0 Oreo update for the C7 Pro (SM-C701F/0/8).

That the C7 Pro is also selling outside China, helps a lot on prospects of C7 Pro Oreo update.

Expected Oreo release: Q2 2018.

Note: We’re yet to begin uploading firmware for China, and because C7 doesn’t have any firmware for non-China region available, we don’t have the firmware for the device at the moment.
