Galaxy S6 Edge Oreo update: Android 8.0 supported?

Galaxy S6 Edge Android 8.0 update

Update [November 27, 2017]: It seems we are in for a surprise! A good one, in case you’re wondering. A new rumor swirling around suggests that Samsung would bring a taste of Oreo to Galaxy S6 Edge as well, and might follow the three year update cycle for major Android OS updates. Awesome! We weren’t expecting this, and going by past experience, we really thought Nougat OS was the best Galaxy S6 Edge users would get, but now it seems that Samsung could bestow the S6 Edge with Android 8.0 update as well.


Now that the Galaxy S6 Edge is more than two years old since Samsung first introduced us to dual-curved goodness of a display, well, while we have totally give in for it for good — the Galaxy S8, S8 Plus and Note 8 all have curved display, you know — as far as software side of the device is concerned, it has reached end of life stage. Which basically means that Samsung would not release an Oreo update for the Galaxy S6 Edge . Which also means that custom ROM is the only was S6 Edge users can get a taste of Android 8.0, this we would recommend you keeping a watch on our LineageOS 15.0 downloads page, as we do think that sometime later, an Oreo ROM would be available for the S6 Edge .

The whole Oreo scenario apart, this page gets you firmware download link of the major updates for the S6 Edge , along with info of what monthly security patch the given software update packs in.

Galaxy S6 Edge Android 8.0 update release details

Update [November 27, 2017]: New report suggest Samsung could bring Oreo to Galaxy S6 Edge as well, and might follow the three year update cycle for major Android OS updates. Awesome! Although this comes from a chat with Samsung representatives, we would wait for something more official to believe it.

It’s usual of OEMs to not provide software update after 18 months for a device, or 24 months if the device we’re talking about is a flagship one, like the Galaxy S6 Edge here. But given the fact has S6 Edge is way older now, over the flagship eligibility period of the update too, it’s obvious of Samsung to not plan the Android 8.0 Oreo update for the device.

However, we do expect the usual security patches to roll out as an OTA monthly or bi-monthly, and a last big update to Android 7.1.1 sometime in October 2017.
